A bank holiday weekend is upon us and as if on cue the weather for our region doesn’t look too promising. Just placed the orders for Friday morning delivery. Meagre is one of the fish coming in, similar in taste and texture to wild bass it should go well with ratatouille and the gurnard with curry cream and samphire always sells well.Tables available at the moment, please call 01453 832808 to book.

Weekend menu – 11 & 12 May 2018

A bit late posting the menu today…..here’s why. Our fishmonger is based up the road in Cirencester where they receive deliveries from the coast then store, prepare and dispatch orders to restaurants, hotels etc. in the area. So as to improve efficiency (cut costs?) the order department is now based in the South Midlands and we did not receive our regular Thursday morning call with market updates and fresh fish availability for the weekend’s order. Rest assured we have now placed our order and fresh fish will be delivered in the morning but it’s a shame to loose that first name contact and rapport that built up over our 15 years as customers. Have you booked your table for weekend? Call now on 01453 832808.
