Don't know what has happened to the food, but it truly was dreadful. The brussel sprouts looked as though they had not even been washed or had the outer leaves removed, they were so dark brown they didn't even resemble a green vegetable. The mixed...More

Another excellent musical at Sonning Mill. Quality singing, acting and fast paced dancing as good as the West End. Brilliant choreography on a small stage and dance routines totally absorbing from start to finish. Can’t wait for next years.
