Mid week menu – 27 to 29 June 2017

English asparagus season is coming to an end soon so we’ll put it on the menu again while we can. We had another delivery from Woodchester Valley Vineyard , both the Bacchus and Regent Rose would pair well with the asparagus for a celebration of  local summer produce.

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.

Where did everybody go? We had a very quiet weekend but with good weather forecast it seemed trips to the seaside and barbies in the garden were popular choices. Throw in a few cup finals, a bank holiday and school half term and it was tumbleweed time along Old Market!

Menu – 9 to 11 May 2017

Barely a day goes by without us receiving some form of dodgy email promising to send us supermarket gift cards, refunds or monetary prizes if we click on the link and give the scammers all our bank details. Today’s claims to be from HMRC and says that we have overpaid tax which they would like to return to us. The giveaway apart from our accountants being pretty accurate with our returns was the use of the phrase “we have been trying to reach out to you”…….off to spam land with you!

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!
