Bistro’s the best!

Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre recently held their very first Bistro night, and it was an absolute triumph!

We had large groups of ladies, family gatherings, dîners à deux, and The Gin Shack provided the bar. Their gin sampling menu was delicious, and greatly enjoyed. 

As one diner said: “The Gin Shack was a brilliant opportunity to sample varieties (which we did – many of !!)”

Feedback was extremely positive:
“The food was all absolutely superb, presentation , portion size and absolutely delicious food which all looked and tasted very fresh. The table service was excellent , professional, attentive, friendly and helpful.

The room and tables were set out beautifully and the environment was very welcoming.”

Maria, Centre Manager noted: “The main positive I saw was that the art makers were working the event and also attending as paying customers so it was a really positive diverse and inclusive atmosphere that worked really well and promoted lots of aspects of the work we do at the centre.”

Rebecca from The Gin Shack said “It was absolutely fabulous and so lovely to see a mix of art makers as guests and staff. What a great night and atmosphere.”

We were also treated to the dulcet tones of Rufus Beckett and friends, as a delightful accompaniment to the dinner.
