On Easter Friday 6th April, we welcome Nigel Thomas and Simon Robinson for dinner. Nigel is a multi-talented jazz artist - he writes music, is a bandleader and a professional double bass player.
The glorious early sunshine has put a spring in our step as we relaunch the terrace for another summer season. I have just managed to put in an early order for some spring lamb in time for Easter and we have revamped our wine list introducing a lot of new and exciting wines including 'zesty' whites and fresh rosés to enjoy with the lighter dishes that we turn to at the passing of winter.
Join us this Friday evening as Yvonne Lloyd sings and swings her way through the golden era of jazz, accompanied by acclaimed jazz pianist Roy Hilton.
On Wednesday 18th April we welcome Andrew Gunn of the Iona Estate, a giant amongst South African winemakers (literally!), to host our first wine and food pairing dinner of the spring season.
Jeremy's restaurant crew are refreshed and raring to go as we embrace the challenge of remaining the top Mid Sussex dining spot in 2012. Vera and I have reacquainted ourselves with the pleasures of simple Italian mountain dishes and enjoying the slopes in the beautiful Dolomites, whilst our chefs have variously been feasting in Barcelona, The Ledbury (very jealous!) and The Cinnamon Club - so plenty of culinary influences there to kick start our reopening tomorrow night - Friday 13th January.
