To Kirsty and staff,

We had our Christimas Lunch today and I just want to say on behalf of all of us that attended, thank you so much for making the venue so special, the food was fabulous (compliments to the Chef) and your staff were a credit to you.

I think this might become a yearly function, quite a few of my colleagues had never been to Milsoms before so they were very impressed by the high standards presented to them today.

I hope we did not leave too much mess for you to clean up and I thank you once again for the exceptional hostelry that I always receive from yourselves.

I wish you and your staff a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
