Upon arrival at Middleton Leisure Centre recently the delicious aroma of home cooking wafted through the air. Visitors to our community base were greeted by dapper Maitre d’ (Steve) sporting his black apron who welcomed guests with a tray of canapes and a constant line in jokes.
We had booked for the first Come Dine With Us lunch and we were delighted to find the base had been transformed with the tables laid and set for 30 people. We were shown to our seats and enjoyed pre-dinner (non-alcoholic) drinks as we waited to be served by Hayley and Jayne. It wasn’t long before the starters arrived followed at a gentle pace by the main dishes, desserts, tea/coffees and mint chocolates. Chefs Caroline and Suzanne had prepared the beautifully prepared dishes, including vegetarian options, which were all absolutely mouth-watering.
After dinner we enjoyed live entertainment from Steve Chapman Smith which gave us a chance to dance off some of the calories. The Middleton team did a terrific job and, given its success, they plan to host another delicious dining experience later in the year.
