Happy #Fryday everyone! It's that time of the week again, and we're thrilled to announce that our beloved restaurant is back open and ready to serve up some delicious meals. But wait, there's something extra special about today's reopening – the return of a true gem, our lovely lady who graces us with her presence for the weekend. And that's not all; we've got another reason to celebrate. Join us in giving a round of applause to the incredible Pat, who has earned the title of 'Employee of the Month – September.'

Now, let us shine a spotlight on Pat, a shining star in our family. Pat's loyalty, dedication, and unwavering commitment are qualities we cherish beyond measure. In these challenging times, as business owners navigating the turbulent waters of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've faced numerous obstacles, particularly in our staffing. When we made the tough decision to reopen the restaurant post-lockdown, we sat down with our crew and explained that we could only operate from Fridays to Sundays. This meant our team would need to dedicate every single weekend to keeping the restaurant running. It was a big ask, and our hearts were heavy with the burden we placed on our staff. But then came Pat's response, a true testament to her character: 'Helen, we will do whatever it takes to get this restaurant back open.' Those words hit us like a ray of sunshine breaking through the clouds. Despite the ongoing staffing challenges we've faced throughout this past year, Pat's commitment has never wavered. Each weekend, she arrives with an infectious smile, engages our customers with warmth and laughter, and works tirelessly to make our restaurant shine. Pat, we want you to know just how much we value and appreciate you in every possible way. As a token of our gratitude, we've prepared a Love2Shop voucher worth £25 for you. It's a small gesture compared to the immense contribution you've made, but we hope it brings a smile to your face. Thank you, Pat, for your unwavering dedication and for being the heart and soul of our restaurant. Here's to many more weekends filled with delicious food, happy customers, and your incredible spirit. Cheers to you!
