The Great British Bump Off!

Murder Mystery Dinner, featuring Murder on the Side

Bloody note – Vintage inscription made by old typewriter, Murder

You are settled on the sofa to watch your favourite tv programme: ‘The Great British Bakeover’. Top cookery judges, Paul Wallyhood and Mary Belly, are chewing, munching & prodding their way through a whole trestle table of delights. 

A sudden scream, a curdled cry for help, and someone is dead amongst the whips & fondant. There’s a killer in the marquee and the atmosphere is ‘in tents’ (intense – get it?).

You are invited to turn detective and work out ‘who done it’!

Menu (with Dorset ingredients):
• Potted shrimps
• Lettuce, pea and mint soup – Served with a selection of locally baked breads;
• Slow roast pork with fennel slaw, mashed potato and vegetables in season;
• Susanne’s favourite vegetable casserole with potato wedges;
• End of summer pudding and Purbeck Ice cream.
• Gluten free/vegan options available – please ask!

Our Blood Is Wine

(2018) Director Emily Railsback

Filmmaker Emily Railsback and award-winning sommelier Jeremy Quinn provide intimate access to rural family life in the Republic of Georgia as they explore the rebirth of 8,000-year-old winemaking traditions almost lost during the period of Soviet rule. By using unobtrusive iPhone technology, Railsback brings the voices and ancestral legacies of modern Georgians directly to the viewer, revealing an intricate and resilient society that has survived regular foreign invasion and repeated attempts to erase Georgian culture. The revival of traditional winemaking is the central force driving this powerful, independent and autonomous nation to find its 21st century identity.

Bohemian Rhapsody


(2015) Director Bryan Singer

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. In an unexpected turn Freddie pursues a solo career. Having suffered greatly without Queen, Freddie reunites the band in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.
