  • The Lawn Way Round

    Sun 12 July 2015

    Last night, we had some special guests... no, not Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor, but the "Lawn Way Round" guys stopping off before starting the second leg of their journey...
    "Back in August 2011, Daz Whitehead & Tony Dwight, supported by a small support crew, travelled 1,071 miles from John o’ Groats to Lands’ End in just 5 days on a pair of Wheel Horse Lawn Mowers. In doing so, the team raised almost £4,000 for charity (Crohn’s & Colitis UK).
    Now, we are busy preparing for a second adventure. This will see the team drive through all the coastal counties of England, Scotland & Wales in just 7 days! The route will see the team leave base camp in Tenbury Wells on July 11th 2015, travel south towards Monmouthshire before undertaking a clockwise tour of the UK mainland coastline which will be 2,158 miles in total - assuming we don’t get lost."
    We wish them luck. Click here to go to their website where you will find out how to make a donation.

  • Great British Cookbook

    Wed 26 November 2014

    We are very proud to be part of the Great British Cookbook which features 200 chefs from 10 different regions from around the UK, including Rick Stein (OBE), Anna Hanson (MBE), Michael Caines (MBE) and Richard Corrigan.

    Our Head Chef, Wayne Roberts' signature dish, braised shoulder of Anglesey lamb with root vegetable rosti, garden greens and a redcurrant and lamb jus, is the recipe we chose to feature in this book, and is also currently on our menu.

    The aim of the book is to raise £200,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support and Hospitality Action by Christmas, with all proceeds from the £12 eBook download going directly to the aforementioned charities.

    To get your copy, go to

    The book is amazing, with fantastic photos of all the dishes including information about some of the small local producers that also feature in it, and would make a great Christmas present for anyone interested in food.
