At New Year the pub has an excellent New Year's Eve party. The chef used to work at Le Manoir AuX Quatre Saisons so he usually does very good food and it goes on until 3am with a live band and a marquee. Christmas Eve is also nice as they have carol singers. Hambleton Hall also has a New Yer's Eve party. More
