Barnham Broom Duo Win Ingrebourne Links PGA Autumn Classic
Barnham Broom's Alex Beckett and his 14-handicap partner Simon Gill have won the Ingrebourne Links PGA Autumn Classic. The event was held over two days at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness.
In an incredibly tight contest, Beckett and Gill clinched the trophy on countback from Peterborough Milton's Andrew Thorpe and his five-handicap partner Adrian Randall. Both pairs finished on a 74 Stableford handicap, but Beckett and Gill finished the second day with a 37 points on the better ball round on the second day (to Thorpe and Randalls 36 points).
All the Ingredients for a Successful Norfolk Restaurant
A £250,000 refurbishment was celebrated last night as 150 VIP guests and business people gathered for the official launch of the new ‘Brasserie at Barnham Broom’ located within the Barnham Broom hotel on the outskirts of Norwich.
Greeted by a Red Lotus Exige S Roadster, guests were treated to champagne, fine wines and a bite-sized three-course meal in the form of sumptuous canapés. After the speech, the formal launch was celebrated with the cutting of a special home-made cake.
Jonathan Ellse, the new General Manager at Barnham Broom commented: “We wanted to launch the Brasserie in style so treating special guests to an evening which showcased our focus on fresh, seasonal produce was important. The Brasserie is leading the way for fine wines in Norfolk and we are committed to offering an extensive list of fine wines that our guests can enjoy at affordable prices.”
Dressed as a golden ‘wheatsheaf girl’ to reflect the restaurant’s focus on seasonality and Norfolk’s agricultural credentials, a painted lady also joined special guests to sample the new restaurant’s menu.
A raffle for the Brasserie’s charity, the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) successfully raised over £400
Jonathan added: “Raising money for our chosen local charity was also important and we’d like to thank everyone who gave generously to a very worthy cause.”
The family-friendly Brasserie offers a wide varied and seasonal menu, seating 120 people and over 80 wines.
The Brasserie is open daily for dinner between 7pm and 9.30pm and Sunday lunches from 12.30pm to 2.00pm. Wide and varied vegetarian options are available.
