Holiday season………Kathryn went to Barcelona with “the girls” last week so our niece Lucy came down to stay and worked with young Michael at the weekend then on her own mid week which was a great help. Rose is off to Cornwall so when Kath returns she will cover the brunch shift as well as her evenings. Michael has booked time off next month so the girls will double up…….aaarrgh!!
More wild bass arriving in the morning plus sea trout, crab and mussels. Soft fruits and local veggies a plenty. Roe deer loin eating well….a customer last night declared it the best venison they had ever eaten which is always good to hear.
