We went to the pudding extravaganza last May.  It was fabulous with a light main and 12 puddings to sample – all delicious. It was hard to select our top 3.
Good topic of conversation with fellow dining guests.
Such a memorable relaxed evening and perfect for Sandy as a cake fan!

These events recommenced again in September. – we have since been to a street fusion BBQ meal and an Italian Evening
Previous events also included afternoon tea, an Indian meal and a polish menu – ooh hope they do that one again
Their ethos is good home cooking in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

They utilise much of their own grown food from their vegetable garden.
They have their own delicious honey, apple juice and Mere Brook cider and home made shortbread is one of their specialities.

The Christmas event in December is already a sell out  ..why not try the event in January 2019 which will be a Burns night!

Sandon Hall Wedding Venue

Sandon Hall Wedding Venue

Next wedding coming up is at Sandon Hal in Staffordshire.   We had the opportunity to visit this ancestral home of the Earls of Harrowby at the weekend when the the weather was clear and bright  A beautiful stately house, the drive up through  fields with grazing cattle and pheasants running all over the place like roadrunners was delightfull, especially with the golden autumn colours.  Hope it stays that way for our bridal couple!  Whatever the weather, there are features a plenty inside for the photographs. Plenty of long windows let the light in and afford grand views out to the extensive gardens. Wooden staircase and arches lead into a room suitable for about 85 -100 guests. Small parties can be accommodated in a more intimate dining room. Upstairs are period dressed rooms , loved the pheasant wallpaper, obviously a feature for the estate, and a balcony is available for overhead shots, ideal for those group pictures. Weddings ceremonies can take place in the estate church if resident in the area, whilst civil ceremonies take place in the library, a beautiful room looking out onto the gardens. The library can also be used for indoor photos after a ceremony too if weather is inclement. Always helpful to have a plan B!. An ornate conservatory with bar area provides a perfect place for drinks afterwards and for some cool bridal shots. Our thanks to Jon Guard the manager for showing us around this gorgeous stately home, can hardly wait to be back and taking the wedding shoot here.

On the way out we spoke to a couple who were visiting venues for their daughter who was currently in Australia – hope these pictures taken will give an understanding of how beautiful this venue is which somehow mixes grandeur with cosiness.
