Gin Dinner

Following on from the success of our Gin Dinner last year we are pleased to announce that it will be returning for Summer 2018

We are delighted to confirm that ‘The Gin Lord’ will be joining us on Friday 27 July 2018 for our next Gin Dinner. ‘The Gin Lord’ is a local gin enthusiast, distiller and resident expert on BBC Radio Suffolk. The evening will start with canapes and a drinks reception on the Sunken Lawn with the chance to sample two gin cocktails. We will then head inside to the beautiful Drawing Room for a two course meal followed by further Gin Tasting.
