So the secret is out!
Myself, Dave and Jeff have all had a run through of the menu and it truly was outstanding, very high quality food and, if yesterday's SIBA north judging is anything to go by, extremely high quality beer to go with it. To book, please call the Fayrer Garden direct on 015394 88195. They are even offering half-price B&B for the night, with lake-view rooms avbailable on a first come, first served basis.
See you there!
