Summer time….

So, the school holidays are upon us, and those of you in the know know that for front of house its 6 weeks of holiday…I wish!

…instead I find I’m desperately trying to figure out how to use WordPress to make our website more engaging and appealing and of course more informative!…this may take 6 weeks , but hey I’m determined to give it my best shot….so this is just a heads up to let you know that our website may or may not be working…but the joys of social media mean that we are never far away!

The good news is that with the hot food licence in place we are now ready to expand into evening meals…welcome one and all to phase two of our village establishment…“TAG’s Bistro” & just in case its not that obvious T-earoom A-nd G-allery = TAG (how ingenious!…it came to me in a flash one night and as you know I use tag’s everywhere!) We’re starting on the 23rd August with a regular “Tuesday Supper club” and then we’ll be adding more weekend dates monthly along with menus, so keep an eye out and hopefully we’ll see you soon.

The B&B is almost ready too aptly named “The Loft” (we have been busy!) just a new ceiling to put on the Tearooms (here’s hoping its not too messy!) we’ll let you know all about that in the next newsletter.

_MG_4174Chefs been busy in the kitchen and now has Jams and chutneys galore made by his fair hands under the trusty name of “The Sticky Jam Pot” they’re great and have been selling a treat along with our delicious scones, he’s even been out and about at various local festivals and fayres. He also makes up presentation boxes and hampers…just a few ideas if your stuck for christmas ideas!!!

Its great that we are now using more and more local suppliers and employing more staff too… Its important to us to be able to put something back into the community, thats why we love Lockton and its wonderful community spirit. So far this year along with the lovely folk in the village we’ve helped with raising funds for a village defib, now safely housed in the telephone box and also helped organise and present the villages first ever “Lockton Artists Open Studios”  well, we are a fairly creative bunch here…so all in all its been a productive first half to the year.

The Tearooms, as always will be open Thursday – Sunday and as always we’ll be here welcoming you in and sharing life experiences (mainly funny!) with you all…& a reminder that we will be transforming into “Cafe Renee” again for Pickering War weekend mid October and then October Half term when hopefully we will have a short but perfectly formed well earned break…

But for now we wish you a lovely, happy and healthy summer filled with balmy evenings and wistful walks…until next time…

Kevin, Janilaine & Co
