Dinner menu – 13 to 15 February 2018

We had a surprise visit from the Environmental Health officer during Saturday brunch for an unannounced hygiene inspection. After quite a lengthy visit and a good look at all aspects of the kitchen and the management systems we have in place we passed inspection and were awarded our 5 star rating as usual. It’s the first time in our careers that we have ever experienced a routine visit at the weekend.

Mid week menu – 6 to 8 February 2018

Our Friday fish delivery normally arrives between 8 and 9.30. Last week the driver was knocking on the door at half seven so when it reached 11 a.m with no sign of him this week I rang the supplier to check. The order is definitely out for delivery they said so the driver must have altered his route. When he finally turned up at 3.45 I asked what on earth had happened. Oh he said, I decided to start at my furthest drop then work my way back towards the depot in Cirencester. His farthest drop on a Friday is somewhere in Wales!
