We had an unannounced visit from the Stroud District Council environmental health officer this week and following the inspection we were awarded our usual 5 star (very good) food hygiene rating. We had lunch at the Severn and Wye smokery on Monday which has inspired one of the starters on the weekend menu. Also we have some of those cute little queen scallops arriving in the morning, they sold well when we had them on last time. Spaces for Valentines are going fast so if you are yet to book please do not delay.
