Spectre - Film Poster

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6 led by M. Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.

Guardian Spectre Review Peter Bradshaw October 2015
James Bond is back, stylish, camp and sexily pro-Snowden – 5 / 5 stars

Daniel Craig has grown into the role of the British spy with flair and sang-froid and this inventive, intelligent and complex new outing showcases him brilliantly.

65% Rotten Tomatoes

Critics Consensus: Spectre nudges Daniel Craig’s rebooted Bond closer to the glorious, action-driven spectacle of earlier entries, although it’s admittedly reliant on established 007 formula.

Film starts 8.30pm – free admission – recommended donation to Mountain Rescue £2

Adam Tyrer - New Chef

Meet Our New Chef
Adam Tyrer
Adam joins us from New Zealand.

“I have lived in many areas in New Zealand and I get my interest in food and cooking from my mum. We have always lived on lifestyle blocks (small holdings) and raised our own stock and grown vegetables at home, so I have always had an interest in using the ingredients to their full potential. I left school at 17 as I knew then that education was not the way forward for me, all I
have ever wanted is to be a chef and be the best I can be at it.”

We are currently developing our new menus for 2016
