We need to make some space and are selling some of the bits we know we will not need for any future projects. Small items include loads of china and glass + lots of other bits from the restaurant and kitchen. Larger items include tables, chairs, thermomix, pacojet, fridges, oven etc. They are suitable for business and home use. We are holding viewing days on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th March from 11.00am – 3.00pm. Please come along or if you would more details please give us a call on 01584 874431.
We served our final dinner on Sunday 20th December, it was our greatest and saddest evening to date. We are now taking a break to get ourselves refurbished, makes a change from the usual renovations and upgrades to the building!
I’m sorry that we cannot, at this stage, be precise about our future plans but we don’t know how long it will take for us both to be fully mended, we hope to have a clearer idea by the end of May.
We do know that if and when we come back it will be different from the Mr Underhill’s of the past 35 years, it’s time for a new challenge. We have a project we are working on and again it will be the sort of place we would like to go to ourselves, this time somewhere on a more everyday basis rather than special occasion.
We are currently wrestling with 35 years accumulation of stuff, mainly china, glass and kitchen bits alongside, literally, a shed load of paperwork. Everything we know we shall not need again we will sell. Once that is sorted we will set to on our future plans. I will keep you up to date here and since I should have more time on my hands I aim to use this space for any bits and pieces that I hope you will find interesting.
Current menus, updated wine list, new recipe, some fresh pictures are on their way. Our year ended in a blur and it is only looking back now that I realise 2012 was probably our most frantic year ever, the re-style interior and exterior meant we had at least one of our amazing makeover team with us for the past year and a bit, at the moment Chris and Richard are sorting a leak between the new bedroom floors, our good luck was that it was found before the ceiling caved in! This alongside our book project, training new staff and trying to answer every phone call whilst focusing on the rooms and the restaurant which were full almost every day has left other bits neglected, especially our website, so this is my current proirity.
We are looking for staff both front of house and kitchen and are happy to train the right people, we offer a good package and make sure you have a life outside of work!
