The return of real weddings!

It’s been a hot minute since we had any real weddings to talk about.

Back to our busy old selves, witnessing the […]

Bountiful Buffets

Ok, we will forgive you; when we say “Buffet”, most people’s minds go to an image of a plastic table pitched up in a sweaty tent or conference room, all the good sandwiches have already gone and no one’s refilled the coffee. Relax, at Ross and Ross – we do buffets our way. Ross and […]

Aprils Seasonal Produce

April is here and Spring has officially sprung. Cue daffodils, April showers, mountains of chocolate eggs and cute little lambs capering around the blossoming fields.
