Weekend menu – 8 & 9 June 2018

The scaffold and netting is down, the windows have been cleaned and Pete the builder is just finishing off and cleaning up after the wall repairs. No excuses for us not to crack on with  the routine summer maintenance jobs out front now but already we look so much tidier and welcoming. Just ordered some Cornish Pollock for delivery in the morning. It is caught by Darren Jose with rod and line off his day boat Sea Maiden out of Hayle Harbour. In season, as fresh as it comes and sustainable.
