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 – 20 & 21 October ’17

They don’t make stuff like they used to! Regular readers may recall we had to replace one of our big fridges recently. The new unit was delivered on 1st September and has already gone on the blink. It is under warranty and an engineer is due this morning but it’s blooming inconvenient and not what you expect from a brand new bit of supposedly commercial kit. It also puts us behind with prep for the hopefully busy weekend ahead until we have the fridge space to store stuff correctly. Hey ho, plod on…… Oh and if you want a table for dinner this weekend please call us on 01453 832808. Thank you.
