Google Analytics

When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. We also use this service to check what content our viewers are most interested in, for instance the recipe section or the upcoming events section, to ensure we constantly develop and update content in the pages most frequented by visitors to our site.
