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
brand new selection of meals, sharers and sundaes.
Feedback was positive, and we must take this opportunity to
thank those of you who waited patiently while we tried to keep on top of the huge
number of orders that were flooding into the kitchen!
The menu was designed from scratch, with just a few old
favourites (most notably our steak and ale pie) being retained. The idea was to
offer more choice and even better value, whilst continuing to prepare and cook
as much as possible from fresh, here in our own kitchen.
Being a “Summer” menu, many of the dishes were created with the
sunshine in mind. The new ice cream sundaes for example, have already proved
popular during those brief bursts of nice weather that we were recently treated
To accompany the new menu we have also added two new themed
nights to our weekly line up. Tuesday nights will be Spice Night, offering a
range of curries and a free drink with every meal! Thursday will be Grill Night, during which you can enjoy one of our great value grilled dishes with a
complimentary drink. The full menu and chef’s specials will continue to be
served throughout these nights too, meaning that there’s something for
We hope that everybody enjoys our new menu as much as we
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
