Mid week menu – 30/5 to 1/6 2017

Where did everybody go? We had a very quiet weekend but with good weather forecast it seemed trips to the seaside and barbies in the garden were popular choices. Throw in a few cup finals, a bank holiday and school half term and it was tumbleweed time along Old Market!

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.

Space on Friday at the moment, please ring us on 01453 832808 to book a table.
