We have a table of 5 vegetarians in the diary for Tuesday evening. They are obviously aware of our separate seasonal veggie menu. Check it out on our blog page. Have we had enough rain now? We’de got used to wearing T shirts every day with no thought for jackets or jumpers although it was a bit more comfortable in the kitchen on a busy Saturday night with the temperature outside down in the teens for a change.

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.
