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.

Weekend menu – 4 & 5 August 2017

We have a glut of courgettes and tomatoes at the moment. As well as our own home grown produce on occasion friends and customers very kindly turn up with a box of large, misshapen courgettes or similar and there is only so much soup, sauce and chutney you can make. We’ll repay the favour when our pears are ready, it looks like another good year and in fact we are still using the 2016 pear chutney. We have tables available for both Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Please call us on 01453 832808 to book.

Dinner menu – 28 & 29 July 2017

Will she never learn? Our stupid duck was on top of the lean to with we think 10 ducklings on Wednesday evening so we made the courtyard ready with easy access to the stream. On Thursday morning we got up expecting them to be pecking around the garden as usual but no….she was the wrong side of the wall again creating a fuss as they were all trapped in next door’s back yard. Human intervention got them down to the stream by the town square and they were last seen paddling towards the mill!

Our neighbour is having a new driveway laid and due to the cutting of paving slabs and a gentle breeze everything is covered in a fine dust. We could do with an overnight shower just to dampen things down a little! Should be finished by the weekend though so don’t be put off using our courtyard for brunch or dinner.
