Well Mothers day didn’t quite go to plan. Having proudly displayed our fully booked sign for the past few weeks our 12.30 table rang mid morning and cancelled. Our 12.45 table rang late morning and cancelled too and when our 1 o’clock arrived they were a man down! As a result we lost a quarter of our customers before we got going….nothing we could do but keep smiling!                             Please note we will not be open on Tuesday this week but up and running as normal from Wednesday onwards.
