End of an Era :: Retirement Dinner

Retirement Celebration

We were so proud to host a very special evening for the retirement of B. Braun's Chairman Hans Hux in January. 

We love what The High Sheriff of South Yorkshire had to say about the evening...

"On the evening of 30th of January we went to The Mowbray in Neepsend for the retirement dinner of Hans Hux of B Braun.

A thoroughly nice man who has had an amazing and hugely successful career at the company, over 41 years. There were touching tribute speeches from work colleagues, members of the board, Richard Caborne , Derek Anderson - the President of the RCOS , Yuri Matischen of the Sheffield Sharks basketball team and Peter Sunderland of Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

A most enjoyable evening."

The Menu

We served our signature feasting menu - The Laden Table which is a celebration of the very best of seasonal ingredients. We matched the menu with our Super Deluxe drinks package including a very nice champagne for guests arrivals.

The Reaction 

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and to everyone who ensured that we had such a wonderful evening.

The space is absolutely stunning, the food was incredible and the band were amazing. 

The feedback from all the guests has been amazing with everyone saying what a great night and what a great venue it is. 

The atmosphere on the evening was amazing and it was the perfect venue for the retirement of B. Braun's Chairman Hans Hux.

Please pass on my thanks to your whole team including the bar, kitchen and security staff – because nothing was too much trouble for them"

Lynn Martin-Chambers, B.Braun

We Wish You All The Best Hans!
