Weekend menu – 6 & 7 July 2018

We opened as normal on Tuesday even though England were playing at 7p.m. At about 6.30 the town went silent, the streets were deserted and all the parking spaces opposite were empty. We turned the stove off at 8.30 having served no one and joined the rest of the nation to watch the penalty shoot out. Well done England. Saturday’s match is at 3p.m. and we do have some bookings for the evening thank goodness. Call us on 01453 832808 if you fancy dinner after the game.

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.

Weekend menu – 23 & 24 February 2018

We thought Spring was in the air earlier this week as we had a visit from Mr and Mrs duck in the courtyard. They had a good look around and did a bit of housekeeping in the corner where she nested last year so watch this space. Now though the forecast is for sub zero temperatures and biting Siberian winds so watch out gardeners as we can see lots of buds and shoots in our borders. Tables available for dinner this weekend, please call 01453 832808 to book.
