Thursday April 25th
Fairfax spirits & 6 course dinner

Kelly is quite new to the distilling world but the products speak for themselves. After a lifetime in hospitality she certainly knows a thing or two about flavours and quality. In its first year they had a winner in the Yorkshire taste awards and you'll be seeing why on the night! We've paired their products and flavours with a 6 course dinner and Kelly will be on hand to guide you through the drinks. Bookings are now open for 6:30 on Thursday April 25th. £70 per person for the dinner and drink pairings.
