"A big thank-you to all the team for a memorable afternoon and evening. It was interesting to learn about sea fishing, seaweed and wild plants, and the setting, food and company in the evening was truly special." Julia

"Just to say thank you for a lovely afternoon evening on Saturday for the forage and feast, we learnt about different edible sea weeds, what to forage and eat in the hedgerow, a try at fishing, and then up to the pavilion set in a private garden, for a glorious 3 course supper cooked for us. it looked so inviting and of course it is set in the most stunning location, with the sea, the isle of wight and bournemouth on the horizon. We met with some lovely people on the evening, something fun and different to do, the staff are lovely, friendly, and work very hard at what they do, and you can tell they believe in the whole ethos of the courses."
