Weekend 31 March and 1 April 2017

April is upon us, end of the financial year and no doubt a hefty tax bill to pay! Looking on the bright side (difficult as it is chucking down with rain again at the moment) Spring is here, tubs and shrubs are starting to fill out and we had our first customers sat in the courtyard for brunch last weekend. Orders placed  with fish monger and butcher for Friday’s delivery and menu written for the weekend. Please call us on 01453 832808 to book your table for dinner or just pop in for brunch on Saturday from 11 a.m.

Weekend menu – 17 & 18 March 2017

Regular readers may recall the incident last July when a car crashed through the railings outside and smashed into the corner wall of the restaurant. Many weeks of dealing with insurers, builders etc. followed and the wall was eventually repaired. The two damaged sections of railings however were never replaced and the highways department said it needed instructions from district and local councils before proceeding. Well, surprise surprise a couple of chaps pitched up yesterday and planted two shiny new sections of railing a mere eight months after they removed the old bent ones. Table 6 in the window is now a well defended place to sit and eat. Please call 01453 832808 to book it!
