Weekend menu – Friday 18 & Saturday 19 August 2017

A sign of the times perhaps but I see the Vegan cafe around the corner is closing down this week and the little coffee shop up on the top is closed and has a bailiffs notice attached to the front door. We had a call this week from someone who said they had not been in for some time and asking if we still did tapas. The previous owners of our business did a form of tapas with San Miguel on draught but they left in summer 2003! You’ll find a lot can change if you leave it 14 years between visits. Just ordered our fresh fish delivery for the morning and we have tables available for both Friday and Saturday dinner at time of writing. As always please call us on 01453 832808 to book yours. Saturday brunch served from 11a.m.

Dinner menu – 28 & 29 July 2017

Will she never learn? Our stupid duck was on top of the lean to with we think 10 ducklings on Wednesday evening so we made the courtyard ready with easy access to the stream. On Thursday morning we got up expecting them to be pecking around the garden as usual but no….she was the wrong side of the wall again creating a fuss as they were all trapped in next door’s back yard. Human intervention got them down to the stream by the town square and they were last seen paddling towards the mill!
