Weekend menu – 11 & 12 May 2018

A bit late posting the menu today…..here’s why. Our fishmonger is based up the road in Cirencester where they receive deliveries from the coast then store, prepare and dispatch orders to restaurants, hotels etc. in the area. So as to improve efficiency (cut costs?) the order department is now based in the South Midlands and we did not receive our regular Thursday morning call with market updates and fresh fish availability for the weekend’s order. Rest assured we have now placed our order and fresh fish will be delivered in the morning but it’s a shame to loose that first name contact and rapport that built up over our 15 years as customers. Have you booked your table for weekend? Call now on 01453 832808.
