Weekend menu – 8 & 9 June 2018

The scaffold and netting is down, the windows have been cleaned and Pete the builder is just finishing off and cleaning up after the wall repairs. No excuses for us not to crack on with  the routine summer maintenance jobs out front now but already we look so much tidier and welcoming. Just ordered some Cornish Pollock for delivery in the morning. It is caught by Darren Jose with rod and line off his day boat Sea Maiden out of Hayle Harbour. In season, as fresh as it comes and sustainable.

Weekend menu – 11 & 12 May 2018

A bit late posting the menu today…..here’s why. Our fishmonger is based up the road in Cirencester where they receive deliveries from the coast then store, prepare and dispatch orders to restaurants, hotels etc. in the area. So as to improve efficiency (cut costs?) the order department is now based in the South Midlands and we did not receive our regular Thursday morning call with market updates and fresh fish availability for the weekend’s order. Rest assured we have now placed our order and fresh fish will be delivered in the morning but it’s a shame to loose that first name contact and rapport that built up over our 15 years as customers. Have you booked your table for weekend? Call now on 01453 832808.
