Well this is most unusual, it’s been a lovely day, all day! This calls for Pimms and Mojitos, we’ve actually spent some of this afternoon preparing them so pop in and grab one, in fact somebody literally just ordered two, so come and join them.
This weather though has caught us out a bit on the menu front… we had decided that winter was firmly here so we added Wild Boar and Apple Sausages and a Plum Crumble and then of course it turned out to be hot, hot, hot. However, if that’s why it’s a nice day then we’re happy to take one for the team and actually they are so tasty they’re worth ordering regardless of the temperature. By the way, the bangers are from Dove, our favourite butcher in the local area.
