Food & Drink Reviews
Attention festive foodies!
The biggies for December will be evenings of Swing and Sparkle - Rat Pack tribute nights featuring performers giving it their all in the style of Frank, Sammy and Dean as you tuck in to a festive four-course feast. And after pudding the DJ will then be tempting you onto the dancefloor for a night of losing your inhibitions (Saturday 2 & 16 and Friday 8 December, 7pm, £35 per person).
You will also be able to get a gorgeous festive lunch between 12 and 2.30pm each day (except 9, 25 & 26 December) at £15 for two courses, or £19 for three, from 27 November to 31 December.
The popular Festive Afternoon Teas are also back from 2.30pm-4pm each day (except Sundays and 25 & 26 December). The traditional package is £14.50 which lets you enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches such as roast turkey and cranberry as well as freshly baked scones and a selection of pastries. The indulgent package is £18.50 which includes a warming glass of mulled wine.
And, hey, while you’re there, why not pop into the craft shop that is packed with artisan crafts, one-off jewellery pieces, twinkly baubles and glass pieces created on site. Perfect for self-gifting (or, if you must, a present for someone else).
