Mid week menu – 3 to 5 October 2017

Pete has had to put a scaffolding tower up at the front door to repair a section of roof. Unfortunately this is both unsightly and obscures the flood light at night. We are very much open as usual though so do please come in. Weather permitting it won’t take too long to get sorted.
