    Amanda Steele has been frolicking with flowers for as long as she can remember it's no wonder that her amazing handiwork work has been featured all over the world. Here we find out where she likes to hang out locally in Rutland.

  • The Royal Oak

    Awarded an AA Rosette four years on the trot, Muddy books a table at this Long Whatton pub with rooms to see what all the fuss is about.
