Well, that’s the end of summer for now and what a summer it’s been. From our re-opening on 4th July, though the 50% deal in August and the lovely weather in September we’ve been very busy, and we’re very grateful to everyone who has been to support us so far.
The lavender field has been stunning as usual, with our thousands of plants attracting bees and insects, and the pub gardens have been in full bloom. Now the weather’s changed it’s time to move indoors, into our cosy stone-flagged bar and snug dining areas. We’ve lit the fires and are settling down for autumn! We’ll soon be trimming the lavender ready for next year.
For those of you who don’t already know we used our time wisely during lockdown to completely transform our Lovell Suite. It’s now unrecognisable with its new fireplace, colour scheme and decoration and we’re very pleased with it. Using the extra space has allowed us to put plenty of space between our tables for extra peace of mind.
Autumn is the season of bracing walks, and the Arboretum next door is starting to look particularly good. Autumn is a lovely season to see it, so come and take a walk down the avenues with their borders of golden-leaved trees, and see the glorious colours of the acers. The Cheshire Wildlife Trust have introduced three new walks which are signposted. If you get a bit chilly, come and see us for a bowl of hot soup or a coffee afterwards – dogs and muddy boots are very welcome in the bar.
It’s been a very strange summer and no-one knows what the autumn will bring, but we’re still committed to bringing you delicious food in a beautiful setting as the season rolls round. We look forward to seeing you soon, and thanks once again for your continued support.
