January was lovely and warm as summer finally arrived plus it was a good month with good customer numbers that included with a few birthdays in the 90’s coupled with a great variety of foreign visitors.

In the kitchen

Rebecca has been cooking at night over the last few weeks with guests complimenting the chef and not realizing that it was Rebecca cooking each night. Rebecca has just come out of her time as an apprentice and is taking to the role as chef amazingly well – keep up the great work!
