Dinner menu – 6 to 8 November 2018

You may recall the coffee machine let us down last weekend. The chap came out and diagnosed the problem, it required the replacement of a £5 switch which he obviously didn’t have on his van. The job was completed on Friday and his bill with VAT was £88! If I had my time over again I would definitely choose a different trade.

Weekend menu – 11 & 12 November 2016

It used to be normal practice for utility companies and contractors to let you know when they were doing works so that you could make arrangements for your business regarding access, deliveries etc. so we were a little surprised on Tuesday morning when 5 chaps and a mini digger ripped up the pavements outside the restaurant. They left it taped off like a crime scene overnight then laid a rough tarmac base on Wednesday. This morning a lorry full of tarmac turned up at 9 a.m. but 3 hours later there is no sign of anyone in high viz to lay it! We can assure you that despite outward appearance we are open for business with tables available for both Friday and Saturday at the moment. Please call 01453 832808 to book.
