Wow... What a week and we are only half way though.
This week we turned our hand to jam making - using Damsons forraged from Calver that Dad picked for us to turn into delicous Jam. MMMM, and what fun we have had too with the Jam - from Jam Roly Poly to Steamed Puddings... It has been a truely delcious week for the DWA.
You will also notice with our coffee's we are now serving homemade shortbreads instead of plastic wrapped biscuits - we are trying to reduce our plastic waste and so more items like this will be found around the pub in times to come. #Saveourseas
Rain, Rain, Go Away, Come Back Another Day - How much rain can one little Island have in a couple of days - we have been dodging the weather and floods to keep our fresh food on the table and our warm and cosy pub open for you. We are now ready for the Sunshine - if you find it - please redirect it our way as we are definatley missing it's beautiful rays.
Gardening - the Eagle eyed ones amongst us will have noticed we have felled some trees to the front of the pub - opening the area up more. Over the next couple of months we are working on our outside space - ready for planting in the spring. We hope to introduce climbing plants along the railings and Herb planting around the areas that are being cleared. We will also be updating our outside seating and re-organising the side garden. So watc this space!
