Greetings from the New Forest September 2017
Greetings from the New Forest,
We hope that you have all had a fabulous summer! The Forest has certainly been a mixed bag with July seeing a heatwave whilst August was somewhat wetter!! So frustrating as soon as the holidays started, although did not stop us getting out in the Forest, going to Paulton’s Park- literally that place gets better and better, Furzey Gardens, Rock Up in Whitely and trying out the new Showcase Deluxe cinema in Southampton- very plush!! Luckily the weather improved before we got into bowling – not one of my strengths…
However, hoping that September will be dryer!! Nevertheless, we had a great summer. We had lovely guests, and some fabulous weddings too- Congratulations to our glorious couples, we hope you come and visit us soon.
We also continued with our reupholstering project, and I am pleased that we have now finished our dining chairs and more excitingly our reception chairs and sofa have been re done- they look totally amazing and no more gaffa tape he he he Now it’s the essential maintenance post Summer that is my new decorating project.
Going forward we are looking forward to the Autumn, seeing the New Forest changing seasons is always a treat, and beyond we are already looking to dare I say it- but Christmas, and have been finalising menus for our Christmas party nights, our Christmas Day lunch and New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Looking forward to meeting you soon
Greetings from the New Forest June 2017
Greetings from the New Forest,
Well we have had an incredible May, helped massively by beautiful sunshine and warm days. The Forest is so dry at the moment it is perfect for walking and cycling. My family and I can’t get enough of the cycling at the moment!!!
We have also been so lucky and had some amazing weddings, all completely different yet all completely fabulous. Congratulations to all our wonderful couples, and come back and see us soon!!
The decorating and preparation for summer season continues, and we have redecorated room 18, and it looks so great, fresh, light and bright! We have also replaced the carpet in room 9, this has now completed this room too. We have started to re do the floor on the ground floor corridor and this is looking great, but…. not without it’s challenges. We suffered a leak in the reception and so had to pull up all the boards and then re lay…. gah!! nightmare, but thanks to the amazing Gary we are all back on track and no more bouncy reception floor- thank goodness!!! and we can resume service on finishing the corridor!
The kitchen team are working well in the new kitchen and I am also loving the simplicity of service so a successful refit and all our guests are seeing the difference and the food coming out is absolutely sensational… I was even a guest when we came to dine for my Dad’s birthday and we all had a super night.
One final improvement is also our restaurant chairs are getting a refurb, new padding and a great peacock blue, which goes so well with the restaurant wallpaper.
We hope that you can join us soon, as the New Forest is looking lovely, the rhododendrons are still in bloom and the whole Forest is green and lush.
