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.
