We’re already in November, and things have been busy again this week for The Mill House. Here’s a quick round up of what’s been happening here:
A celebration of life
Monday 31st October
On Monday we hosted a Celebration of James Holden's life for his wife Sylvia and sons Andrew and Peter. They dined on our steak and potato pie and a cheese pie and we saw lots of photos of Jim with his family on holiday and at various family gatherings throughout the years.
There were quite a few military men from the parachute regiment and the army in their uniform as well, which is always lovely to see.
Cheese and ham toasties - a firm breakfast favourite.
Wednesday 2nd November
We hosted our regular BNI Zeus [@BNIZeus] breakfast meeting and added a few different things to the breakfast food we supply. Porridge, plus ham and cheese toasties were firm favourites so they'll be added to the regular menu.
Imogen and I then took ourselves off for a few days to my sister-in-law's house on Anglesey for a little break and left Chris to manage The Mill House on his own (with lots of help)
Maybe I should go away more often
Thursday 3rd November
While we were away - he hosted GFN Lodge and arranged a 2 course dinner with lamb shanks, mashed potato, seasonal veg and then served jam roly poly with custard for dessert - yummy. The feedback was extremely good so maybe I should go away more often?
Friday 4th November
Friday was a joint 60th and 30th birthday party for a mum and daughter with our grazing platter buffet - everyone had a fantastic night and the birthday girls couldn't praise our team enough. The DJ - Steve Elliott was brilliant as usual, and made sure everyone's feet hurt from dancing the night away.
Baby Guinnesses - another firm favourite (but not for breakfast!)
Saturday 5th November
Imogen and I arrived home in time to get everything ready for Casey's birthday on Saturday night. Again, a brilliant night with fabulous entertainment from the band.
Sunday 6th November
Sunday brought us little Louie's christening, and what a pleasure it was, hosting all his family and friends of the family. Baby Guinnesses were definitely the order of the evening later on with someone actually thinking that it was a really small glass of Guinness. We soon put them right and now it's a firm favourite!
Time to relax tomorrow and gear up for another busy week next week!

If you asked Sharon for a unicorn - she would find one for you! Sheila H
From the moment we went to set up till the last person left you were all very helpful and excellent company. Big thanks to the bar staff, laughing, dancing and singing all night. Food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Michelle S
Can't recommend highly enough, had the school leavers party today. What a beautiful venue, Sharon has done an amazing job refurbishing and was brilliant with helping me organise a fab party. All the staff was so friendly will 100% be having an event here again. Charlene S
A stunning venue and the teams creativity is second to none. Sheila M
