Mid week menu 20 to 22 June 2017

We got the courtyard set up and stood by for a busy Saturday brunch and…….nothing happened! We had a few in but none of our “regulars” showed up and Nailsworth was like a ghost town. I guess the garden or the seaside were a bigger draw on the hottest day of the year so far. Hopefully better luck next week.

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 – 17 & 18 March 2017

Regular readers may recall the incident last July when a car crashed through the railings outside and smashed into the corner wall of the restaurant. Many weeks of dealing with insurers, builders etc. followed and the wall was eventually repaired. The two damaged sections of railings however were never replaced and the highways department said it needed instructions from district and local councils before proceeding. Well, surprise surprise a couple of chaps pitched up yesterday and planted two shiny new sections of railing a mere eight months after they removed the old bent ones. Table 6 in the window is now a well defended place to sit and eat. Please call 01453 832808 to book it!
