We just returned home after a weekend at Virginia Court, an organised trip with "Simply the Best" including Thursford's "Christmas Spectacular" (and there's another story!)
We arrived mid afternoon on Friday and were greeted by cheerful staff, treated to afternoon tea or coffee and then into our rooms; we were in room 15, smallish but with a (cold) ensuite, but spotlessly clean and comfortable bedroom, TV and tea making equipment, all perfectly adequate. (and freetrade)
As a large group of about 50 people, we dined together and it was a little noisy as strangers made friends.
The FOOD was astonishingly good, cooked and well served by tremendously cheerful and friendly staff who, as the weekend progressed, proved that nothing was to be too much trouble. Breakfast was simple, wholesome and much more than just adequate - we were clearly in for a treat.
At each meal, there were several choices for each course, all cooked freshly from locally sourced ingredients and satisfying for almost everyone (there is always an exception to this rule and, well, I will not make anything of this). Other commentators have mentioned the home made jams - until you have tasted carrot and cardamom - you have not lived!
Our stay was brief, but thoroughly enjoyable and I really recommend this establishment to all.
We will return and stay here, perhaps only for the Thursford event, but definitely here!More
