 Well that’s January out the way, always good to get the first month of the year completed and we can start looking forward to all the fun events coming up in 2016!

We have been taking part in Lunch for Even Less since the New Year which is a annual offer from seven top local restaurants to get lunch at a great price! Its been really popular again this year and we hope to see many more new patrons while the offer still runs until the end of March.

We hosted a fun Burns Night Supper last week, complete with Haggis, Neep & Tatties, Whiskey and Poems! Our next event is Valentines which Brian has developed a great sharing menu for romantic pairs to enjoy. We also have a great DBB offer which is just £150 for two.

Last but not least our first Cooking Demo of the year is 6th March and that will be cake decorating so get booked in and……let them eat cake!!
