Easter weekend, time to take off the working hat and now time to relax. It was the open day for English Country Homes at Doddington Hall today. We were very keen to see the new venue as previous visits to Leadenham were very enjoyable.Slightly disappointing as the Brew House is much smaller with less products on show but the ambience is still the same, very country casual. Linen sofas and chairs, occasional furniture, storm lamps, mirrors, table lamps and lots of kitchen accessories to name but a few items for sale. The design studio is upstairs where soft furnishing projects are undertaken for customers.
They will not be catering at The Brew House as Doddington Hall has a restaurant and very nice it is too, along with the well stocked farm shop and in house butcher. We bought home reared pork, blue shropshire cheese, almond stuffed olives, plumb loaf and some Green & Blacks chocolate. (it is Easter after all) We would have liked a coffee but today they were only taking lunch bookings, so on the way home we stopped off at Uncle Henry's in Grayingham for our usual fix of their lovely cappuccino and home made scone.
