Weekend menu – 11 & 12 May 2018

A bit late posting the menu today…..here’s why. Our fishmonger is based up the road in Cirencester where they receive deliveries from the coast then store, prepare and dispatch orders to restaurants, hotels etc. in the area. So as to improve efficiency (cut costs?) the order department is now based in the South Midlands and we did not receive our regular Thursday morning call with market updates and fresh fish availability for the weekend’s order. Rest assured we have now placed our order and fresh fish will be delivered in the morning but it’s a shame to loose that first name contact and rapport that built up over our 15 years as customers. Have you booked your table for weekend? Call now on 01453 832808.

Mid week menu – 6 to 8 February 2018

Our Friday fish delivery normally arrives between 8 and 9.30. Last week the driver was knocking on the door at half seven so when it reached 11 a.m with no sign of him this week I rang the supplier to check. The order is definitely out for delivery they said so the driver must have altered his route. When he finally turned up at 3.45 I asked what on earth had happened. Oh he said, I decided to start at my furthest drop then work my way back towards the depot in Cirencester. His farthest drop on a Friday is somewhere in Wales!
