NEWS November/December 2019
Our wonderful inglenook fireplace had a visit from the chimney sweep in November. A roaring fire is such an attraction, with these damp, cold evenings and we want to be sure it is safe. Max, our local tree surgeon, brings us the fruits of his labours – a great assortment of different woods in all shapes and sizes. It takes considerable muscle just bringing them in from outside and then it needs a lot of creativity to build the fire! We had a good blaze going last week. One of our regular customers took some great photographs of it as inspiration for her creative writing.
The first of our new Supper Club evenings took place on 27th of last month. Richard, our chef, designed a special three course Kentish menu to include watercress and samphire soup, a roast of Venison and Wild Boar, and Gypsy tart -all washed down with a mug of Kentish cider. We all agreed it was a very special meal! We hope to make it a regular event so look out for the next one – planned for the New Year – on the first Wednesday in the month. So, Wednesday 5th February is the date for your new 2020 diary!
One of the frustrations of the last two months has been the 4-way traffic light system in place on Stone Street, at the Stelling Minnis junction. It has caused significant delays to daily journeys and includes a number of overnight road closures. This will go on right through to early December. We hope customers will still find their way to us!
On a more positive note, our Christmas menus have received an appreciative response. Bookings are coming in for festive meals, for parties and for Christmas Day lunch.
Don’t leave it too late to book! Menus and booking forms are on our website or just give me a call.
Hope to see you again, soon!
