    We recently had a little party in the garden after my daughters christening, and Holly and her husband were brilliant and went out of their way to accommodate us. The chef did a fabulous buffet and the gardens are so pretty. Thanks so much!

    Ring the pub landline, someone will come and meet you. A rough arrival time is helpful.
