Weekend 24 & 25 March 2017

The wild garlic is shooting up around the local valleys so we did a bit of foraging on Wednesday afternoon in between the downpours. Our duck has taken up residence on top of the lean to so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the nest in the coming weeks. We are fully booked for Mother’s day lunch on Sunday and don’t forget the clocks change this weekend. For dinner bookings please call 01453 832808.
