Summer's (apparently) here! - 13 / 05 / 2013
We may have taken a bit of a gamble in describing our new menu as a “Summer Menu”, what with the fairly average weather that we’ve been
treated too recently. The recent bank holiday did however give us some hope that
summer is coming, and hundreds of you packed our beer garden to sample our

served throughout these nights too, meaning that there’s something for

enjoyed creating (and sampling) it. As always we appreciate any feedback that
you would like to pass on, good or bad. We can be reached by e-mail, or
contacted over Facebook and Twitter by clicking on the links.
Finally, we’d like to wish everybody a Happy Summer! I’d
best not mention the rumour that I’ve just heard about more snow coming this
