Well, it finally arrived. Monday 12th April. We have loved being able to have seating outside and have customers dining in with us again. The weather has been good to us and we have been nice and busy this past week. I have to say Linsey and I feel a little out of practice and need to get used to a busy service again.
But we have nearly got used to the new till system, and have been able to practise with the tab option and splitting the bill, which we couldn't do with our old Cassio classic (which we miss as it was so retro!) but it's important to move with the times in some respects!
We've had some challenges, namely having to replace one of our windows which shattered. We'd like to thank everyone for their concern regarding this matter. But Linsey and I took it on the chin and it was just one of those things. We'd been sensible and made sure we were insured for our windows, as we expected that we would have to face this situation at some point. As it goes, the replacement wasn't as expensive as we initially feared it might be and didn't claim on our insurance. All fixed as of last Friday and a great job done by West Bridgford Glass.
We've been super pleased that our cake boxes have proven popular and you can still order these for take away if you're interested. We have vegan brownie boxes (6 for £12), gluten free cake boxes (4 cakes for £10), vegan 9" brownie pizza pies (£18 each) and scone boxes with clotted cream and jam (£5 for 2).
Now, we're looking forward to Monday May 17th when we can open indoors too. We will have limited seating available inside to ensure social distancing. We will have a table for 4, two tables for 2 and our breakfast bar. Let's hope the road map stays on course for May 17th and let's see the back of Covid restrictions!
