Weekend menu – 26 & 27 May 2017

A bit late with the menu today. I can only blame it on the mini heat wave which meant I dashed from the office (which is over the restaurant kitchen and therefore rather warm) once the orders were placed and the menu was written without doing the blog bit! To book your table for dinner please call 01453 832808. We gave the courtyard a tidy yesterday in anticipation of some al fresco opportunities this weekend too.

Weekend menu – 7 & 8 April 2017

Last day of term in our area so the beginning of the Easter break for many. Combine that with the good weather forecast for the coming weekend and we could find ourselves very busy as folk get together to go out or we could be very quiet as folk head for the coast or stay at home and dust off the BBQ. Let’s hope it’s the former and plan accordingly. Tables available for both Friday and Saturday at the moment, please call us on 01453 832808 to book.
