We've received interest from young people wanting to join us for the summer holidays as well as we're already looking at new and interesting summer drinks. The next biggest challenge for us this year is to achieve a great exciting summer menu that works for our customers as well as making it easily and speedily achievable for the kitchen to produce.
This January and February has been full of ups and downs already, we have had four deaths of friends and acquaintance's, which filled us with sadness but we have also had reasons for great joy!
One of our team - Jade - has safely delivered a bruiser of a boy; James almost 8 1/2lbs - very glad to say that Mother and baby are very well. We are due a 2nd grandson any day now, and we are looking forward to a trip to Copenhagen at the weekend with a visit to Carlsberg Brewery on the schedule.
I undertook a cookery course at Ashburton Cookery School last week and I loved it!! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves food! It was great to do something just for me for a change and I learnt that I'm not a BAD cook, I just need to take my time and taste, taste, taste!! But I must say categorically this was just for me - not work.
Lastly, I was in Kingsbridge last week when I bumped into this loveable and quite gorgeous Cockerpoo in training to be a Hearing Dog. Our A la Bark menu has so far raised in excess of £1200 for this amazing charity and it was lovely to see our donations working.
