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.

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.
