How to Order (click to open)

Dear Friends  

At this very difficult time we are doing our best to offer a Hot Food Take Away service.  Our menu is attached below, but is subject to change as the Corona virus is disrupting our supply chain.  Please try to follow the guidelines here, when ordering.

Going forward we are trying to encourage customers to order 24 hours in advance.  This is because some products we have been unable to source, and some items such as burger buns etc we are having to defrost, rather than offer fresh.  The notice period allows us to organise our supplies and provide freshly prepared dishes.  If you would like a Sunday Roast we will need to know by Friday each week, please.  

If you really need to order on the day, just give us a ring, and we can advise which dishes we can provide.

We are also now able to offer Daily Specials as follows:

  • Homemade Cottage Pie served with vegetables £8.00.
  • Lamb’s Liver and Bacon served with Mash and Onions £8.00.
  • Home made Bacon or Veggie Quiche with Chips £7.00.
  • Maccy D Double Burger with cheese & Burger Sauce served with Chips £7.50

Please order and pay by card over the phone.  We will advise on collection time and access to ensure your safety in keeping with current guidelines.
