My wife had recently been to the Ginstitute's gin blending experience with our daughter and enjoyed it so much that she thought it would be a good idea to book the James Bond themed dining and drinks evening as a birthday present for me. What an excellent choice of present it was!
At just after 8pm we were greeted by our host for the evening and taken upstairs to the rather intimate boardroom where the table was set for about 18 people. As our host explained, the evening's dining and drinks that we were about to enjoy are all based around the experiences of novelist Ian Fleming and his character James Bond in the series of books about the very British spy. I will not elaborate any more on the content of the evening (they asked us not to anyway) as I don't want this review to be a spoiler for others who attend in the future, except to say that you will enjoy excellent, well presented food and drink and will go home with memories that will linger long into the future.
A special mention for the hard working and friendly staff and of course the group of people that we had the good fortune to share the experience with. Thank you all!
A small regret was that I did not wear an evening suit and bow tie a la James Bond, I wish I had, some guests did and looked the part, others didn't but were still all smartly dressed as befitted the evening. Most ladies wore cocktail dresses, it's not compulsory but an excuse to get all glammed up.
I can certainly recommend this experience, it's good value. Just be careful going back down the rather steep stairs when you've probably had one over the eight!
