Weekend menu – Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th November 2017

Doom and gloom in the press this week with reports of one in five restaurants on the brink of insolvency due to poor exchange rates pushing up material costs coupled with business rates increases and the latest raises to the minimum wage and work place pensions. Self imposed austerity shouted another headline as consumers cut back on their eating and drinking spend and today’s forecast interest rate rise is sure to further squeeze household budgets we are told. Could explain why we are having a rather quiet week ourselves. Tables available for dinner this weekend, please call 01453 832808 to reserve yours.

Weekend menu – 20 & 21 October ’17

They don’t make stuff like they used to! Regular readers may recall we had to replace one of our big fridges recently. The new unit was delivered on 1st September and has already gone on the blink. It is under warranty and an engineer is due this morning but it’s blooming inconvenient and not what you expect from a brand new bit of supposedly commercial kit. It also puts us behind with prep for the hopefully busy weekend ahead until we have the fridge space to store stuff correctly. Hey ho, plod on…… Oh and if you want a table for dinner this weekend please call us on 01453 832808. Thank you.
