Bringing home the bacon

Thanks to a conversation with a lovely regular patron of ours who said how surprisingly easy it was, we were promoted to have a go at making our own bacon. Having had 2kg of loin and 2kg of pork belly marinating in the cure in the fridge for a week, yesterday we...

In constant pursuit of inspiration

It must seem like we are forever eating and drinking out but honestly it is all in the name of research and for getting inspiration for our own menus. This week we ate at the Grill at the Dorchester Hotel (no we don’t have pots of money to blow, we have just...

Good Food Guide

Whilst looking into a local restaurant which has been recommended to us by one of our customers, we came across a link on their website to a guide we had never heard of – the Waitrose Good Food Guide. Now that we have moved to live in the Old Town as well as...

New things on the menu

Woohoo, nearly time for spring lamb to go back on the menu.  Our butcher is telling us end of this month and we should be good to go – very exciting!!!! We are also making some tweeks to the vegetarian offering on the main menu as of next week.  We did a special...
