Gourmet dining at the Miner’s Country Inn in Sling has pulled in more than £800 in donations to help pay for a brave boy from Lydney’s cerebral palsy operation.

Charlie Mitchell, 5, needs the op to help him walk and grow up like his friends, but the £25,000 procedure is not available on the NHS.

Landlord of the Miner’s, Steve Jenkins hosted the night of fine food and said he could have sold tickets twice over due to the popularity of the food on offer.

Dishes were served up by Michelin chef Josh Eggerton from the Pony and Trap at Chew Magna and award winning Simon King from the 1861 at Abergavenny.

Steve, who gave away 25p from every pint sold to Charlie’s appeal, said: “It was a phenomenal evening.

“To have two chefs of that calibre working together in our kitchen was incredible.

“The food was out of this world. Simon cooked the beef Wellington main course and Josh created a salmon and cucumber sorbet terrine. Both dishes were incredible. For them both to give up their time for nothing shows how Charlie’s appeal has touched so many people.”
