So much has changed since the last time I wrote. We're well on target to open on the 24th. The house is filled with boxes of PPE, automatic hand sanitisers, stickers. The kitchen is cleared for redecoration and Gatsby ( no.1 pup and I have had haircuts. This update is just to bring you up to speed with menus eat in and takeaway and plans for the future. We have also recruited a new team who will work alongside us from the 24th. I am very excited for the future and moving the business forward even through these still quite strange times.

Demelza - La Petite Bouchée
We have only ever opened Demelza once for service and that was at St. Johns Fair 2017 when gorgeous Claire and Paddy Hook ate lunch inside her. We will consider opening her for use for the month of September only with a minimum of 4 people or 2 people paying a supplement. She is her own little private piece of heaven, it's a totally unique experience dining inside her. There will be just 8 dates this year to dine inside Demelza if you would like to enquire about one of the dates in September then do email us here at firstname.lastname@example.org These dates are going to go very quickly so early booking is essential.
Just to whet your appetite here's the menu for September ....
