Annie OwenWhile you were away, we did pop in to make sure everything was good... and it was! Wonderful Italian meal including utterly sublime griddled king scallops with scampi and prosecco risotto. So glad you had a good Venetian break; looking forward to seeing you (and those shoes!) xxx4 weeks ago

Almond paste is on the cake, mince pies a-go-go, log fire ablaze, decorations all up - and the reindeer prancing. We have just one or two rooms left for our fabulous 2-night Festive Flop 27/28th and 29/30th (with a side of smoked salmon, bottle of good Soave, pack of brilliant Peter's Yard crisp breads and lemon to take home) and 2 rooms for the 3-night NYE package - LOTS of great food, dancing and fun. Or, if you're local, what about a relaxing brunch on Boxing Day or New Year's Day? All menus and package details on our website, see Special Offers and High Days and Holidays. In the meantime, Happy Christmas! ... See MoreSee Less

Just finished 7 hours Christmas cooking - back- breaking, knackered ... But all worth it for our C&C guests. Mincemeat (here) needs another 48 hours occasional stirring, before bottling; 5kg cake (before almond paste and icing) in the oven, with 6 more hours to go; and Christmas pud mixture needs 24 hours maturation before 5 puddings go on to boil for 8 hours tomorrow afternoon, after I get back from work. And, I don't like any Christmas food except cold turkey and frisée sandwiches. Selfless, or what! ... See MoreSee Less
