Mid week menu – 17 to 19 July 2018

We spent a lovely couple of hours as guests of Woodchester Valley Vineyard earlier in the week. Stunning views from their terrace, a short but informative tour of vineyard and winery and a generous tasting of 6 of their excellent wines. They hold tours for small groups a couple of times a week open to the public, book via their website, highly recommended.

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.
