Mid week menu – 17 to 19 July 2018

Weekend menu – 6 & 7 July 2018

We opened as normal on Tuesday even though England were playing at 7p.m. At about 6.30 the town went silent, the streets were deserted and all the parking spaces opposite were empty. We turned the stove off at 8.30 having served no one and joined the rest of the nation to watch the penalty shoot out. Well done England. Saturday’s match is at 3p.m. and we do have some bookings for the evening thank goodness. Call us on 01453 832808 if you fancy dinner after the game.

Weekend dinner menu – 29 & 30 June 2018

You’ve got to love us Brits in a heat wave. Whilst most folk would be sat in the courtyard with perhaps a glass of chilled Rose and a starter of potted Devon crab we also get customers at a table indoors hunched over bowls of steaming soup on the hottest day of the year.
