Introduction

I think we can say summer has arrived! We have some exciting news in this month’s newsletter, which we hope you enjoy reading about, bits include; The Boodles and the official James Bond Golf Day & Gala Dinner, which we are hosting for the first time.

We are very proud to have recently received some fantastic accolades: ‘Top 100 Golf Course in England’ from Golf World and ‘Top 50 Best British Hotels’ from The Independent.


Chef's London Marathon

We would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of Executive Chef Chris Wheeler to everyone that supported and sponsored Chris over the last few months. Chef managed to carry the 3kg stock pot around the entire 26 mile course, and finished in a very respectable time of 5 hours and 48 minutes. In total just under £9,000 was raised for Help A Capital Child, a charity that supports disadvantaged children in and around London. The winners of the charitry raffle will be contacted directly. Once again- thank you!
