Weekend menu – Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September 2017

If, as happened last night,  a customer rings up a quarter of an hour after their booked time to say they have to “cancel” their table of 4 do we log that as a no show or a cancellation? Either way we have to bear the cost of the bread we baked off and canapes we prepared. Thankfully we hadn’t turned other customers away in the belief that we did not have a free table. Moving on……schools are back, summer holidays done and dusted for most and we have tables available for both Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Please call 01453 832808 to book.

Mid week menu 22 to 24 August 2017

The skippers catch Poole harbour grey mullet we had in on Friday was wonderful. From sea to kitchen door within 24 hours and it sold well too. As it is in season and at it’s best we’ll have some more this week. We’ve noticed the blackberries are looking good around the local valleys so a spot of foraging is on the cards after we have finished our usual Sunday chores.
