“ Dear Bethany,
The evening was splendid – or as guests said ‘spectacular’. Everything went extremely well – the staff were excellent and particularly kind to my wife who is quite disabled – and the food was excellent. My son who looks after 4 restaurants feeding 800+ investment bankers asked me to pass his compliments to the chef!
There is no doubt that you have a very special facility which deserves to be a great success.
With my thanks to you all,”
ANDREW GUNN, RD, FRCSE
