Booked a "Surprise" Birthday Sunday lunch Sun 14th July for a "Family and friends" to celebrate a "notable" birthday, with our 11 year old and 22 other adults.
With visitors making the journey from as far afield as Devon, Warwickshire, Yorkshire and Leicestershire as well as local, the venue chosen needed to impress and the occasion memorable.
We had a most gratifying and peaceful day, having been allocated the Chellaston Room, thankfully fully air conditioned given the 30degC sunny day we are growing used to!
All the food, sensibly pre-chosen and properly communicated to the management was beautifully served and attractively presented by the polite and attentive staff allocated to our party.
Even though another similar party, plus a good number of "spur of the moment" diners was being catered for simultaneously, our food was served at a relaxed and appropriate rate for us to get to know each other and not feel rushed.
Although no-one wished to stay over, so no comment can be made regarding accommodation, the row of cottages were bright and attractive in the sunshine, and we were well entertained by the brave bathers in the cold and fast running waters of the adjacent river.
Well done to all the staff involved in making an important event so pleasantly memorable
