Seven Ducks A-Quacking!

If you have ever been to Nottinghamshire you may have been greeted with the phrase, ‘Eyup mi duck’. It’s something you won’t hear in any other part of the country but locals regard it as one of the most affectionate ways to say ‘hello’ – even if they don’t know you!

The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary

This festive season you can expect the warmest of welcomes from two of our fabulous restaurants. At the Sanctuary Bar and Restaurant, which is known for its commitment to local produce, there are a host of events taking place in the run up to Christmas, including a night with Bella Diva, a quintet of classically-trained singers, on 15th December. It is open throughout the holiday period and the celebrations culminate in a Great Gatsby-style New Year’s Eve celebration.

It's cocktail time!
