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.

You may recall the coffee machine let us down last weekend. The chap came out and diagnosed the problem, it required the replacement of a £5 switch which he obviously didn’t have on his van. The job was completed on Friday and his bill with VAT was £88! If I had my time over again I would definitely choose a different trade.

Weekend menu – 26 / 27 October 2018

Every Tuesday morning between 6.30 and 7.30 some chap wanders round town wafting one of those annoying petrol leaf blowers. The object is to blow any leaves and debris in to the street before the road sweeping wagon comes through and sucks it all up. In reality he ends up blowing muck in to all the shop doorways and on to window ledges as well as waking up any town centre residents still in bed. This week he didn’t show up so after the road sweeper had gone through we were left with pristine streets but pavements carpeted in fallen leaves. You may have seen a lot of local business folk pushing brooms on Tuesday morning.
