Weekend menu -2&3 November 2018

Overheard two young mums in the local supermarket. One said “I don’t know why they have to do Halloween on a school night” the other replied “Yeah it would make more sense to have it on a Friday” ……….Bless ’em. 

We have tables available for dinner on both Friday and Saturday at time of writing. Fresh fish ordered for delivery in the morning. Pheasant now on the menu as winter arrives. Don’t forget Saturday brunch served from 11a.m.

Weekend menu – 26 / 27 October 2018

Every Tuesday morning between 6.30 and 7.30 some chap wanders round town wafting one of those annoying petrol leaf blowers. The object is to blow any leaves and debris in to the street before the road sweeping wagon comes through and sucks it all up. In reality he ends up blowing muck in to all the shop doorways and on to window ledges as well as waking up any town centre residents still in bed. This week he didn’t show up so after the road sweeper had gone through we were left with pristine streets but pavements carpeted in fallen leaves. You may have seen a lot of local business folk pushing brooms on Tuesday morning.
