Hope you are all well and that this cooler weather is not causing too many aches and snuffles. We have tried out our heating – just to make sure that all is well before it gets too cold – and everything is working well. We will have a warm welcome for you all during the cooler months of autumn and the rest of the year.
Talking of autumn we have now put together our new menu – it will come into being on Wednesday 6th October. Some of the new “winter warmers” we will have on offer will be Soup with crusty bread and butter, Cottage Pie, Lasagna, Chicken and Mushroom Pie, Fish Pie and Chilli, as well as omelets, jacket potatoes with various fillings, sandwiches and toasties. We will also offer a selection of “Specials” (depending on the availability of ingredients) such as Beef Bourginon, Chicken Chasseur, Lamb Hotpot, Sausage Casserole and Steak and Kidney Pudding. We’ll keep you posted on which specials will be available and when.
Now, some dates for your diaries. We will be holding some Entertainment/Meal Event evenings in the run up to Christmas.
Saturday 30th October: The first of these evenings, this will be a “Chilli Blues Evening” with as much as you can eat Chilli (vegetarian option too) accompanied by Troubladour, a three piece acoustic Blues (and more) group. The evening will be ticket only with a limit of
50 on a first come first served basis. The tickets are 10 Euros a ticket which includes your meal and a 1 Euro per ticket donation to this year’s Poppy Appeal. Tickets are available from Paul behind the bar or email us to confirm you need a ticket if you can’t get in to see us
Friday 3rd December: We are planning a Quiz evening with a meal of Beef Bourginon and then Apple Crumble. There will be prizes for the winners and the losers ( the obligatory “Wooden Spoon”?) and hopefully fun for all of us. We will be selling tickets for this evening nearer the time (10 Euros a ticket) and canvassing you for your teams (of four please so that you can all eat at the same table).
We’ll have some more event dates for you soon.
We will be taking a few more days off between now and Christmas and you may like to make a note of these dates when the cafe will be closed. We will post this information in the cafe as a reminder for you too:
CLOSED: Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October. RE- OPEN: Monday 18th October.
CLOSED: Thursday 11th November to Saturday 20th November. RE-OPEN: Sunday 21st November
I hope that you have had a chance to try out the new cakes we have had on offer – Passion Cake and Farmhouse Fruit Cake – we’ve had some very encouraging comments so they will stay on the menu for the time being. I will also be trying out other cake recipes soon – why not pop in and see what we have to offer.
OK folks that’s all for now; don’t forget we are back to closing at 6.00pm in the evenings now – except for Fridays when we stay open to 10.00pm. We’ll be back with some more news of upcoming events in a week or so. In the meantime – we look forward to seeing you in
the cafe soon.
