Oldstone menu weekend 6/7 May 2011

A bit cooler but the weather is still holding and the wind has dropped (not before a garden sunshade fell and smashed a pane of glass in the courtyard door).

No bank holidays this weekend …how odd!

The fishmonger reports limited supplies due to windy conditions combined with bank holiday catching up so a few safe options on the menu this weekend.

Plenty of lovely asparagus at Bramleys this morning both the local Wye valley and the smaller Cornish varieties.I bought both!
