It was fun and fortune at the beautiful Statham Lodge hotel in Lymm
The stunning backdrop of Statham Lodge Hotel wasnt the only wonderful surprise for guests at our fabulous autumn lunch.
As temperatures soared to nearly 80 degrees, it seemed more like summer, than the start of winter but no-one was complaining of course.
Not only did the assembled guests get the chance to experience Statham Lodges Gainsborough Suite elegantly dressed with blue tie backs over chairs and stunning floral arrangements for each table, they got to stroll around the gardens in all their sun-drenched splendour.
Statham Lodge on Warrington Road, Lymm has been family-run since the 1960s and has gained a reputation as a wonderful wedding, conference and events venue as well as a place to enjoy delicious food.
They very kindly hosted the event and pulled out all the stops with a buffet luncheon that showcased the talents of the kitchen. On the menu were deli meats, Parma ham and figs, warm breads, smoked Braden roast salmon with lemon and dill mayonnaise, hot new potatoes with chive butter dressing, authentic Greek salad, Bulgur wheat salad, coleslaw, dips, sauces, Moroccan lamb with fruity couscous, roast rib of Aberdeen Angus, wild mushroom and butternut squash risotto.
For afterwards there was an assortment of absolutely yummy tarts and puddings, a platter of continental and British cheeses served with crisp celery, grapes and nuts and a fresh fruit plate. Delicious.
The elegant building dates back to Georgian times and if walls could talk! Conference and Events co-ordinator Linda Waddington reveals: In the past the house was a country club with a fairly risqu past. Thered be gaming and gambling and lots of other outrageous behaviour.
Phew! There was none of that, although we did hold a raffle of fantastic prizes kindly donated by our local businesses. Could that be construed as gaming?
Up for grabs were a pandora bracelet from Randalls, fantastic cooking set by Le Crueset, 300 worth of teeth whitening from Re-Enhance, dinner for two at the Lowry Hotel, delicious aesthetic beauty treatments from Cheshire Caci and special non-surgical treatments from Laserina, and a bottle of champagne from Corks Out.
Cakes by Beth had kindly created sensationally delicious cupcakes complete with the Living Edge signature and Slatterys cooked up chocolate cake pops.
The event was our way of saying thanks for the support we get from everyone and we enjoyed it so much well definitely be doing in again!
