Last weekend was my nephew's wedding (at long last!) Had a great day and then the move to Bannatyne's in Hastings for the reception.
The grounds were great for the wedding photos - but when we got into the marquee for the reception it just kept getting better! The hotel had decorated the marquee - I think we had 80 there and that was more than comfortable, but the food was really something else! Starter of cheese and crostini I think which was really tasty (look out for the cooked baby plum tomatoes - if there's anyone on your table who doesn't like tomatoes offer to help then out - you won't regret this selfless act!) but main course - we thought it was a choice of chicken or beef. Wrong - everyone got both. Now, take things a step further - the chicken breast joint was so large I thought there wouldn't be a problem taking it off the bone. Wrong again - no bone, all meat and beautifully cooked (think how large it must have been!) and another great surprise was the veg - cooked radishes included. Sounds odd but try it - the cooking takes most of the heat away but leaves enough to give a pleasant "spark" - but so little that some thought they were baby turnips. Pud - chocolate something (don't normally eat puds but this was great) and the drinks were sensible prices too!
Spoke to my sister and she told me how well priced it all was too. Don't tell Bannatyne's though, they'll probably hike the prices - it's just a shame that the English weather means they can't keep the marquee up past Autumn.
