In the words of Nancy Sinatra's hit song of almost fifty years ago....."Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring..... my summer wine is really made from all these things." Nothing much has really changed since then. Once again, it's time to break out the best of those summer wines, and the prospect is as delectable as ever!
T.S. Eliot was wide of the mark for this year in asserting that "April is the cruelest month". Holidays, celebrations and sunshine galore brought solace and welcome trade to businesses across the county. Oh ye gods of the great British weather, we are most truly grateful. Mark you, we will surely pay for it later!
Acclaimed jazz pianist and raconteur Mike Hatchard makes an excellent choice for our Easter Monday jazz on April 25th.
She has the French way of delivering Edith Piaf in a magnificent, easy-to-listen-to jazz style and on Friday 1st April we welcome the celebrated Edith Piaf tribute, vocalist Sam Chara and her guitarist Lyle Bing, to accompany our a la carte menu. From 8pm onwards, to make a reservation please either call 01444 441102 or book on line.
