This weekend’s menu – 17 & 18 November 2017

Oh no … they are putting the Christmas lights up in the town centre ready for the Nailsworth Noel evening next week. That means we will have to put the decorations up in the restaurant but it just seems too early. Do you think folk would notice if we wait until December? Tables available this weekend at time of writing. Please call 01453 832808 to book. Thank you.

Nice to see such a good turn out for the remembrance day service today, silver band, local groups and services marching by the restaurant and our clock tower decorated with 7000 knitted poppies made the national press. For a small town we do these things rather well. Bravo!

Mid week menu 20 to 22 June 2017

We got the courtyard set up and stood by for a busy Saturday brunch and…….nothing happened! We had a few in but none of our “regulars” showed up and Nailsworth was like a ghost town. I guess the garden or the seaside were a bigger draw on the hottest day of the year so far. Hopefully better luck next week.

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!
