The Farmers Club once again welcomed in the New Year with great style.
Bubbles to begin with some delicious Chefs Treats in the Lounge and Bar followed by a four course dinner created by our Head Chef.
The menu featured many British foods including Irish Goats Cheese, Pheasant and Partridge from Kent, Gloucestershire Chicken,
Smoked Haddock from Petershead, Shetland Mussels and Oysters, Honey from Derbyshire and Cornish Beef as the main course.
The service was led by Craig our Conference & Banqueting Manager in the new Farmers Suite overlooking The Thames.
The room was a buzz of happy chatter and anticipation of the big event.
The party had begun earlier along the Embankment and we were delighted to be in the privileged position of The Farmers Club
Terrace at 11.30pm which is quite simply, the best seat in the house. The London Eye is directly opposite and Big Ben in earshot.
Champagne in hand, the countdown began on the building opposite, and everyone joined in the count with 10 seconds to go.
WOW it didn't disappoint...............12 minutes of stunning fireworks welcomed in 2017.
Of course the evening didn't end there, bacon and sausage rolls followed and the Bar was open until 1pm.
Finally everyone retired to bed and got up only a few hours later for a full breakfast offering in The Restaurant before departing
for New Year's Day celebrations elsewhere.
To give you a flavour of the feedback, here are some comments we have received so far;
"We had a wonderful evening, well done."
"Thank you - and all your amazing team at the Farmers' Club - for such an enjoyable evening on Saturday. It truly was the most
memorable evening, not just the spectacular fireworks but the reception and delicious canapés, the superb dinner, the champagne
and bacon rolls at midnight and the quiet, efficient and friendly attentiveness of the staff. Please can you pass on our grateful
thanks to them all."
"Great New Year's Eve celebrations - thanks to all."
For those who were lucky enough to attend you will unfortunately not be included in the ballot for the next two years so that
others have a chance. However, as we now have a larger function room to host the evening, more people can be accommodated
so, don't hesitate to apply, next year could be your year!
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous 2017.
