Weekend dinner menu – 13 & 14 April 2018

Doris the duck update…..after enduring a long spell on her nest through some pretty grim weather just six ducklings hatched on Tuesday morning. Our smallest flock to date. They spent the day scrabbling round the courtyard then yesterday morning took the plunge and followed mum by jumping in to the Nailsworth stream. 

Orders placed for Friday’s fresh fish and meat deliveries, tables available for dinner on both Friday and Saturday at the moment….it’s that end of Easter break time when folk are on the move so it could all change. Please call 01453 832808 to book.

Weekend menu – Friday 23 and Saturday 24 March 2018

Why is it that people ring to book a table, ring again to change that booking then don’t bother to turn up or cancel on the day? Even though we cook to order there is an element of wastage as we have baked bread and prepared canapes tailored to their dietary needs and hopefully not turned other customers away in the belief that the table was sold. Looking ahead…. British summer time starts on Sunday. Tables available for dinner on Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Please call 01453 832808 to book.

We thought we might get the courtyard ready for the milder weather but now the temperature is set to plummet at the weekend with a chance of more snow on Sunday…. best we leave it for now. Whenever folk ring to book a table we enquire about dietary requirements so that we can verbally offer alternative dishes on the night. With so many vegetarians coming in we are talking about producing a veggie menu. More details to follow.
