Weekend menu – Friday 23 and Saturday 24 March 2018

Why is it that people ring to book a table, ring again to change that booking then don’t bother to turn up or cancel on the day? Even though we cook to order there is an element of wastage as we have baked bread and prepared canapes tailored to their dietary needs and hopefully not turned other customers away in the belief that the table was sold. Looking ahead…. British summer time starts on Sunday. Tables available for dinner on Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Please call 01453 832808 to book.

Weekend dinner menu – Friday 16 and Saturday 17 March 2018

We thought we might get the courtyard ready for the milder weather but now the temperature is set to plummet at the weekend with a chance of more snow on Sunday…. best we leave it for now. Whenever folk ring to book a table we enquire about dietary requirements so that we can verbally offer alternative dishes on the night. With so many vegetarians coming in we are talking about producing a veggie menu. More details to follow.

Mid week menu – 6 to 8 March 2018

Unbelievable! ……we had a mobile of swimming sea bass hanging from a beam in the dining room which we brought back from Padstow some time ago and it has gone. It would have meant standing on a chair or lifting up a smaller person to reach it but someone liked it enough to put some effort in to stealing it from us.  The snow has mostly gone now so things can get back to normal. We walked down to the supermarket yesterday with a list of a few bits we needed for brunch and it was like a scene from early 70’s Moscow with rows of empty shelves and folk pushing each other out of the way to get the last carton of milk. Don’t forget our 3 for 2 offer this month and we can probably squeeze in one more table for lunch on Mother’s day.
