The winds of change

Well, what a week! With storms raging across the Atlantic and as the stormy scenes in Parliament continue to roll on, I feel that we need some stability in our lives. I am therefore voting for gradual change in order to not rock the boat. I had a conversation with one member last week where I suggested that I might remove a popular dish from the menu and was told, in no uncertain terms, that that would not be a popular move……..So, most of the current selection of winter warmers will keep their places, unlike some of our illustrious MPs.

I have made a couple of menu changes with the introduction last week of a slow cooked pork belly dish, served with cannellini beans and cavalo nero, and I have dropped the mushroom and walnut samosa this week, in favour of a traditional lamb and mint samosa. The vegetarian dishes in the starters selection were beginning to dominate the world, so I have redressed the balance a little!

Plenty of room on Friday and Saturday, so please give us a call if you would like a break from the Brexit debate!

Nigel is braving the weather to come in and help out this evening when we open, so if you want to say hello to him, this is your chance!

The inaugural PNYC Annual Quiz Night takes place next Thursday, 21st March. Tom Ellemann is co-ordinating this event and we have 5 or 6 teams already. Teams of 4 people will compete for the prestigious trophies at seven o’clock and will then have supper around eight o’clock. I have quite a lot to do for this event, so I must know before Monday please, if there are any non-meat eaters in your team. There will not be an option to change your mind on the night, and I will not be preparing any extras on the night!

The Port Navas Yacht Club Brunch on Sunday 31st March to celebrate the change to British Summer Time, and Mother’s Day is pretty chokka, but there are a couple of early (10.30 – 11.30) tables available. Please book early to avoid disappointment!

Hope to see you all soon

Mike & the team (&Nigel)
