The Derx's treated us (and Nicky's colleagues) to a goats cheese starter, stuffed plaice, port & cranberry sorbet, roast duck breast, choccie pudding and a cheese selection, all catered from their own kitchen. They also served up plenty of wine and digestifs.
I suspect that on many levels we wouldn't see eye-to-eye (I don't know, but I suspect they're not great trade unionists or leftists), but as generous hosts and good company I was very pleased to meet them. Let's hope their business venture of Legend Holidays is a success so that Nicky's still with them next year and I can stuff myself silly again! Check out their website, if only to be nosey about the excellent holiday properties they let out: http://www.legendholidays.co.uk/.
