Mid week menu – 5 to 7 December 2017

There we were happily preparing for a full Saturday evening service when not one but two tables rang and cancelled…………..grrrr. At least they were polite enough to call but it left us with six empty seats on what should have been a busy night. No roast for us this weekend…….now where did I put that 101 mince recipes book?

Weekend menu – 21 & 22 April 2017

Just placed the fish order for tomorrows delivery. Fingers crossed there are no hiccups this week. Last Thursday night the van coming up from the South West did not make it to the rendezvous point in time so the supplier in Cirencester did not receive the stocks they needed to fill the orders they had. I did feel sorry for the chap who was ringing round to irate chefs on Bank Holiday Friday to apologise and inform that numerous items were unavailable, short or substituted. It wasn’t a major issue for us as we just changed the weekend menu and wasted a few sheets of A4 but it will have been a huge spanner in the works for some of the large hotel and banqueting operations. Glad those days are behind us!
