Dear Customers

These post lockdown changes remain in place until further notice. If customers don’t adhere to social distancing guidelines, I won’t be able to trade safely. The virus is going to be with us for a long while and we mustn’t be lulled into a false sense of security that because the lockdown has been lifted we can go back to our pre-lockdown lives. If at anytime I feel that customers might be compromising my or other customers’ safety, I shall have to shut shop. I always do my best to satisfy customers request but there may be times when that might not be possible.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Changes:
1. Reduced menu
2. Please order via email ahead of time (if you can) and give approximate time of arrival: Order by Monday of the week by 5pm at the latest (if you can). This helps to reduce queueing.
My busiest time at the trailer is between noon – 1300pm. 
3. Payment in cash will be accepted only if exact. I will not be handling cash. Pay via BACS or iZettel if it works
4. Grab and Go as far as feasible

ALLERGY ADVICE: Please check the detailed ingredient list and allergy advice pack located on the front counter of my catering trailer. If you have any further questions, please ask on the day:)

Please note : While I like to inform my customers about the menu of the day, I am also keen on not getting too fixated on this menu. I find it stifles innovation:) Sometimes, I may decide to have foods on sale which I may not have added to the web site menu purely because I made an ad hoc decision of preparing a new dish and didn’t have time to change the web site menu!

PLEASE ASK ON THE DAY IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS

Once you’ve bought your meal please CHECK your CHANGE and your ORDER🙂

HAPPY EATING
