Mid week menu – 28 to 30 November 2017

Thankfully it’s only one night of the year but Nailsworth Noel last Friday succeeded in killing off trade as usual with half a dozen massive food trucks and stalls from out of town setting up along Old Market in amongst the larger than ever fun fair. We did have some customers who had not been to the event before. They had envisioned an evening strolling through local artisan’s stalls, sipping mulled wine and listening to carols but instead likened the event to a night out in Blackpool…. We could only apologise!

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.

Mid week menu – 31/10 to 2/11 2017

That’s life. We hadn’t had anyone use the courtyard for a while so late last week with cold weather forecast and November almost upon us we jet washed the stonework, tidied the borders and packed away the furniture. Saturday brunch time in walked a lady asking to sit outside! The same day business had tailed off after 2 and as there was no one in we dropped the lock at ten to three to clear up and set up for the evening. At five to three someone rang the door bell asking if we were still serving!
