Weekend menu – Friday 18 & Saturday 19 August 2017

A sign of the times perhaps but I see the Vegan cafe around the corner is closing down this week and the little coffee shop up on the top is closed and has a bailiffs notice attached to the front door. We had a call this week from someone who said they had not been in for some time and asking if we still did tapas. The previous owners of our business did a form of tapas with San Miguel on draught but they left in summer 2003! You’ll find a lot can change if you leave it 14 years between visits. Just ordered our fresh fish delivery for the morning and we have tables available for both Friday and Saturday dinner at time of writing. As always please call us on 01453 832808 to book yours. Saturday brunch served from 11a.m.

Mid week menu – 25 to 27 July 2017

It rained so hard on Friday night that it brought a piece of guttering down. We have reattached one end and directed the flow in to the stream for now but another repair has now been added to the never ending list of things to do! Just one of the joys of owning very old buildings.
