September Opening…

Okay, I’m resigned to only using the site for opening hours updates until I can redesign the whole thing so it works on mobile devices and stuff.

Anyway, we’re closed from September 1st until 13th for maintenance work. We’ll re-open as usual on Thursday 14th September.

Today we also have our usual cheese sale (up to 50% off) for the stuff that won’t make it until we re-open, so pop in and grab a bargain!

Christmas Order time…

It’s Christmas again.  Almost.

This is where we promise to start posting more frequent updates to the website to keep you entertained, and well, we will try but to be honest we spend so much time running the place we struggle with our “media presence”.  We’re always here if you need us!

Anyway, you can find a link to download the Christmas order forms at the end of this post.  If you don’t fancy downloading them and printing them out, you can have a look to use as a guide and just email us your order.  Or simply drop into the shop as we have a pile of them waiting for you.

The deadline this year is SUNDAY 13th DECEMBER.

It’s a little early because of how Christmas Day falls, but these are the requirements of our suppliers.  Orders taken after this date we can usually fill but it is on a first-come, first-served basis so we can’t guarantee anything.  We’ve put them out a month early so even the less organised have time!

Do be aware however that our baker, De’Ath’s, have decided they don’t want to work between Christmas and New Year, so although we’ll be open we won’t have our usual selection of breads available.  Please bear this in mind if you need to order extra to freeze.

The Rabbit Bakery will be doing a small bake on New Year’s Eve, so there will be some bread on that day.

All that’s left is to wish you a Merry Run Up To Christmas!  Don’t get too stressed!

Christmas Opening 2014

The deli and the cafe in the snow

Okay, well, it’s Christmas 2014 and we’ve gone a whole year without putting any updates on the website.  I suppose that’s the downside of spending all your time actually running the place – no time for self promotion!

Summer arrives (at last)

The famously changeable weather of these fair isles never seems to satisfy us as a weather watching nation.  Still, with better weather here, we can proclaim that ‘Salad Days are here again!’

Katie has begun with the usual salads: potato salad, tabouleh, rice salad, lentil & carrot salad, and a few others.  Available to take away in the shop, or as part of your lunch in the café.

On the good days you can even sit out in our quiet little courtyard garden, a nice safe spot away from the bustle of the, er, village.

Annual Maintenance…

Sincere apologies for a lack of updates of late – I’m afraid between being super busy and having endless problems with our provider, it’s been tough.  Hopefully we can change all that.

In the meantime, this is a reminder to everyone that Today (Friday) is our last day open before we close for some maintenance.  We’ll re-open on Tuesday 11th September.  If you see us pottering about in the café, feel free to wave, but please don’t point and laugh!

To make up for our closing, you can take advantage of our offers for today – 20% off frozen meats, 30% off frozen sausages, and up to 50% off some of our cheeses!

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused by our closure (we’re sure there’ll be some), and we’ll see you when we re-open.

Pass the parcel…

Spinach Parcels

Just a quick update to remind everyone how jolly tasty the food is here in the café (not that most people need reminding!).  Katie has just taken these bad boys out of the oven – spinach and cheese parcels.

They are as delicious as they look and are vegetarian too.  Usually found with  filo-pastry packaging, Katie used all-butter puff-pastry instead because it’s more satisfying and also makes much less mess.

This is the kind of thing we like to jam onto the ‘specials’ board but don’t forget all the usual stuff that’s available (check our menu here), and for the less hungry there’s always the option of just coffee and cake.  Look out for more different and delicious dishes as and when they spark Katie’s interest.  We look forward to seeing you!
