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
