Mid week menu – 20 to 22 November 2018

The Federation of Small Businesses is advising members to prepare for a worst case Brexit deal by doing risk assessments and creating a business continuity plan. We have taken note and doubled our order for risotto rice to 4 kg. this week as a first step to stockpiling imported goods. We have managed to sqeeze one more late table in for dinner on Christmas Eve but we are now 100% fully booked. Sorry.

Mid week menu – 7 to 9 December ’17

Don’t be alarmed but it is only 7 weeks until Christmas!!!!! Pete the builder has now completed the roof repairs and the recent rain has not found a way in so we can get on with internal refurbishments now. Unfortunately the scaffold will need to stay up a bit longer as he wants to tidy up and repoint the ugly looking buttress before we get frost damage. We could always wrap a bit of tinsel around it if it’s still there next month.
