For those of you who have followed us with interest and affection for the many years we have enjoyed providing hospitality in mid-Sussex, now it really is time to hang up our aprons and begin to enjoy a good, and simple lifestyle.
Whether it is savouring those long cherished barbequed sardines on sandy shores, here or abroad, or the chance to indulge in a number of other pleasures we have held back from doing for a long time.
We have now closed both businesses and are enjoying the first weeks of our retirement before setting off on our first gastronomic pilgrimage to France and southern Europe for many years.
It is a huge wrench for Vera, me and the team to bid farewell to all the wonderful customers and friends that we have developed such special relationships with over the years.
Jeremy, Vera and the team
