Menu – weekend 5 & 6 May 2017

The menu sounds very Spring / Summer like with asparagus, Jersey Royals, crab, citrus, strawberries etc. but I would advise a jumper as the sun is hiding behind low cloud and that breeze is quite chilly. Please call us on 01453 832808 to book your table for this weekend. Thank you.

Dinner- Friday 29 & Saturday 30 July 2016

The insurance company sent someone down to inspect the damage after last weeks car meets restaurant incident. Now that the bent railings and police tape have been removed it doesn’t look quite so dramatic but a section of wall will need rebuilding. The loss adjuster thought that a newer building would have been seriously damaged so thank goodness for our solid 2 foot thick Cotswold stone.
