Outstanding Success
The Dinner on the Saturday evening was an outstanding success and I was hugely impressed with Nigel and his team and how they coped with the dreadful weather conditions. Given that the food had to be prepared offsite it was delicious and many people commented on how good it was and how succulent and tasty the chicken was- well done chef.
