“You’ve got to stoke the boiler if you want to run the engine”!

It’s an age old Yorkshire saying that my gran used to regularly tell me and holds very true as the weather gets colder and we find ourselves at the end of a busy half term needing “belly timber”!

Today’s lunch was a teriyaki and honey roast fillet of salmon on a bed of mixed vegetable rice. To finish off proceedings we had a pineapple and cherry upside down sponge with custard.

It’s a menu fit for a gastro pub and wouldn’t be out of place at the Wise Man in West Stafford – other good hostelries are available.

Kerry and her team always go the extra mile to keep us all well-nourished. Sharon and Tracey have the aftermath of lunches to cope with. Less glamorous but no less important and valuable.
