Weekend menu – 20/21 April 2018

We tried some nice wines yesterday with Antony from The Oxford Wine Company in preparation for our new list which will be coming soon. First English asparagus of the season is in the kitchen and looks great, on the menu this weekend cooked simply and served with cracked pepper and lemon butter sauce.

Weekend dinner menu – 13 & 14 April 2018

Doris the duck update…..after enduring a long spell on her nest through some pretty grim weather just six ducklings hatched on Tuesday morning. Our smallest flock to date. They spent the day scrabbling round the courtyard then yesterday morning took the plunge and followed mum by jumping in to the Nailsworth stream.

Weekend menu – 6 & 7 April 2018

Last week we took the brunch menu out of the menu box by the front door and stuck it on our “A board” so that we could showcase our veggie menu alongside the weekend dinner menu. (with me so far?) We then had the quietest Saturday brunch any of us can remember since we opened so for this weekend it’s all back as it was! There’s a copy here below the weekend dinner menu as a reminder of what we do. Tables available for dinner this weekend, please call us on 01453 832808 to book.
