Caister Hall, Passion to inspire upskills day


What an inspiring day at Caister Hall, a warm welcome from Nick and Mark and the team showing us around this beautiful hall. 

We didn’t know what to expect, a different venue for this year’s passion to inspire upskills day.

 We were truly spoilt, starting with welcome drinks and tasty snacks, MJP Adnams sourdough bread and Fen butter.

Inspiring surroundings, a beautifully laid table and mouth-watering dishes, inspiration for the front of house students with the standard of service, menus, and wine pairings.

The food was delicious, great flavours and textures giving us all a different perspective on the brief.
