Eat, drink and be sherry

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

T was cheer­ing to read in Harry Eyres’s col­umn (Septem­ber 28) that sherry might have a re­nais­sance. Three years ago, I was in­vited to a wed­ding in Sur­rey. Be­fore din­ner the evening be­fore, I re­quested a dry sherry. This caused the bar staff great con­cern. ‘We don’t do sherry in Sur­rey!’ I heard bar staff dis­cussing the prob­lem. ‘She comes from Devon,’ they agreed. Even­tu­ally, a bot­tle was found at the far end of the cel­lar and I was served a few cen­time­tres of sherry in a brandy glass, with the waiter hav­ing to guess the price.
