Leanne welcomed guests with a warm and friendly smile, giving them their trays, cutlery and salt and pepper. Marie handled the potato bake and parmigiana, while Angelique was a massive hit on the salad bar. Marketing graduate Kane was a great soup ladler until Nina stole his job half way through, while Craig took care of the washing up.
