-SUN 1400HRS Now, anyone on our terrace last Sunday will tell you what a great day we all had and that was because of a certain Mr Lee Townsend who never ever let’s us down. He’s back again this week and if last week is anything to go by, BOOK TABLES PEOPLE! We did run out of seats outside by 3pm and we did have to close our kitchen at 6pm because we just had no prepped food left!

Foster or Home Needed: Mr. Henry needs a new home, he is in my foster care right now but I am moving house and will not have the room for him. He can go to a home with other dogs but not cats. When he first came to me he would not let anyone near him after 4 months he has improved with his trust of humans but is still quite wary, so he is not a cuddly dog, Yet.
He is a very gentle dog, likes to play with my dogs would suit the campo or somewhere with a large enclosed area outside as he is not lead trained, as you can see from the photos he is just a lovely young dog.
Please if anyone has space for one more and I know it’s a big ask, but I only have ten more days left to find him a home. Contact Janet 620042435
