Weekend menu – 6 & 7 October 2014

Apologies for the scaffolding out front as building repairs continue. The 200 year old bits are fine but typically the dodgy work done in the 70’s needs attention.          It was chilly again this morning. Maybe time to pack away the courtyard furniture and admit that autumn is here. By the way the Christmas menus are done and on our blog page and I saw selection boxes in Tesco this week!………Too soon?
