Weekend menu – Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September 2017

If, as happened last night,  a customer rings up a quarter of an hour after their booked time to say they have to “cancel” their table of 4 do we log that as a no show or a cancellation? Either way we have to bear the cost of the bread we baked off and canapes we prepared. Thankfully we hadn’t turned other customers away in the belief that we did not have a free table. Moving on……schools are back, summer holidays done and dusted for most and we have tables available for both Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Please call 01453 832808 to book.

Mid week menu – 5 to 7 September ’17

August was an expensive month repair wise. The glasswasher needed a costly repair the other week and now one of the big fridges has packed up.

How does that song go….things can only get better….
