Festive Food & Frivolity!

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the Dragon Hotel delighful! The Brasserie is the place to go…please don’t snow, please don’t snow, please don’t snow!

With the Christmas party season now in full swing, the hotel is buzzing with activity.. the trees are trimmed, the lights are flashing and the kitchen is place of oganised chaos and beautiful aromas!

Head Chef Steve is doing his best Gordon Ramsey impersonation as he barks orders out to his ‘little helpers’ and Pastry chef Hayley is concocting the most delicious desserts you could imagine, from your traditional Christmas pud to Orange Parfait with Clementine Compote with Chestnut shortbread! Mouthwateringly good!

So if you fancy some festive fun, or just a traditional Christmas dinner, come along to the hotel and sample the delights we have to offer!

Festive Greetings avid readers!!

We are once again honouring a team member..the one person that has stood out as contributing that little bit extra, and I am delighted to announce that the winner of this pretegious accolade is once again the lovely Tanisha Williams – Conference & Banqueting Supervisor!

Tanisha Williams team member of the month for November

Tanisha is one of our long serving employees and works tirelessly along side the Conference & Banqueting Manager Antonio, making sure that everyone attending functions, be it Birthday party, wedding reception, hen night etc has the very best of service.  Her attention to detail is seconf to none!  Her favourite time of the year at the hotel is trimming up ready for Christmas and it’s fair to say that there is never a bauble out of place or a piece of tinsel trailing!  So once again join me in a celebratory toast to Tanisha…may your Christmas lights glow brightly and your festive functions go with a bang!

Welcome Back Mrs Jones!

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

No it’s not a new member of the conference & events team; but our very own Wedding Coordinator who become Mrs Jones on Friday 8th July 2011.

July saw the climax of what has been 16 months in the planning for Siân, used to organising the ‘Big Day’ for other brides. It was now her turn to be centre of attention with her husband Russell and what a day it was, from Singing Waiters to a Caricaturist and a Magician, not forgetting Lottie their dog!

After their fantastic day spent with so many family and friends, what a better way to start married life than with 2 weeks in the Caribbean island of Aruba!  Relaxing on the beach with sunset dinners to deep sea fishing (Siân enjoyed this the best! Seasick sums it up).

Siân has now got back in to her routine but this time as Mrs Jones, she has enjoyed showing us all the photos and the fantastic video.  Now when dealing with new brides she can assure them that they are in good hands, just look at how her wedding turned out, one word; FANTASTIC !

Once again massive Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Jones!

Sian & Russell

So here it is…Merry Christmas!

It’s the day after Beaujolais Day and already the Christmas decorations are going up!  The Conference Office is asking when will we get a break?!!  Although to be honest it’s been feeling like Christmas since September with the bookings coming in followed by deposits, full payments and menu orders.  There truly is no rest for the wicked…

Having said that though, Gethyn has still managed to find time to gallivant on his travels since we last spoke, fitting not one but two jaunts away.  He is forgiven though because he did bring us all some rock back from Minehead!  He’s also looking rather distinguished with his new spectacles. As trendy as they are though Gethyn, you can’t deny that old age is catching up with you!

We had a bit of a panic when Take That announced their impending tour since ARGH! Sian could not get them to pick up the phone to purchase her tickets.  A collective breath of relief could be heard when eventually news came through that at least someone in her circle of friends had managed to get a ticket for her – phew!

Cath’s still on her campaign to lose a stone in weight before Christmas – at 8lb loss so far it’s still on track but she can’t honestly say that its going well and that’s before there’s an advent calendar to be opened each day!

Well, we’d better sign off now as much thought and consideration must be given to the Office Secret Santa…

Have a Cool Yule!
