We used to make up and deliver our own food parcels to those in need, so when the opportunity arose to help establish a food bank in the area we were highly involved. Now it's a fully functioning organisation!

We support the work of Bassetlaw Foodbank with volunteers and donations. Find out more on their website.


Our Comedy Club is fast becoming known as one of the best nights out in the Retford area. Many of our comedians have starred on radio & TV, including BGT finalists. Tickets are available from reception & the price includes a free drink at the Comedy Bar.
