Weekend menu – Friday 18 & Saturday 19 August 2017

A sign of the times perhaps but I see the Vegan cafe around the corner is closing down this week and the little coffee shop up on the top is closed and has a bailiffs notice attached to the front door. We had a call this week from someone who said they had not been in for some time and asking if we still did tapas. The previous owners of our business did a form of tapas with San Miguel on draught but they left in summer 2003! You’ll find a lot can change if you leave it 14 years between visits. Just ordered our fresh fish delivery for the morning and we have tables available for both Friday and Saturday dinner at time of writing. As always please call us on 01453 832808 to book yours. Saturday brunch served from 11a.m.

It’s the second week in August and we were thinking about putting the heating on last night to take the chill off the dining room….aahh the great British summer!     At the moment we have tables available for Friday evening but Saturday is filling up so please call on 01453 832808 to reserve for dinner.

A new record of sorts……we had customers eating and drinking in the garden every evening last week. On Wednesday all our tables ate outside so it looked as though we had an empty restaurant if you passed by. Thankfully that was not the case. Rain forecast for this week though but you never know.
