Weekend menu – 21 & 22 April 2017

Just placed the fish order for tomorrows delivery. Fingers crossed there are no hiccups this week. Last Thursday night the van coming up from the South West did not make it to the rendezvous point in time so the supplier in Cirencester did not receive the stocks they needed to fill the orders they had. I did feel sorry for the chap who was ringing round to irate chefs on Bank Holiday Friday to apologise and inform that numerous items were unavailable, short or substituted. It wasn’t a major issue for us as we just changed the weekend menu and wasted a few sheets of A4 but it will have been a huge spanner in the works for some of the large hotel and banqueting operations. Glad those days are behind us!

Weekend menu 6 & 7 May 2016

It’s been an interesting morning so far. The intruder alarm has gone off five times even though it is not even set and there is no one but me in the building! An engineer has tried an over the phone diagnosis and a number of resets but it will need a house call some time today to fix it. In the moments of silence I did manage to place a fish order for delivery on Friday morning. Tables available for Friday and Saturday at the moment and it looks like a good weekend weather wise so the courtyard will be open.                  As usual, 01453 832808 is the number to call to reserve your table.
