For a long time we’ve been keen to start serving hot drinks for your coffee break, and now that we’ve finally been able to, we’re building momentum with the first hot food takeaway to be added to the take away service.
From tomorrow, 5th November (how fitting for an outdoor celebration, but sadly no fireworks!) we’ll start offering a soup of the day option that we’d love for you to try.
To begin with we’ll just be offering that soup of the day option that we mentioned a moment ago while we get a feel for demand and see how we can cope with increasing our menu slightly. The idea is we’ll gradually increase this to give some favourites an outing every day.
Initially, we’ll cycle through some predictable selections from the usual suspects:
- Leek & Potato
- Carrot & Coriander
We expect to cycle through those over the next three or four weeks, and then offer a couple a day if practical.
If at all possible, if you’re kind enough to come and try one or two (or all five, why not?), then we’d love it if you’d share your thoughts with us. After all, you could be shaping your lunchtime for years to come, and we want to tempt you back over and over again! Selfish, right?
As a brief look to the future, we really don’t know how long we’re going to be restricted to serving take away only – while that’s something we always planned for, it was very much intended to play second fiddle to the dining in experience.
With that said, more than a couple of customers have told us that it’s been great to grab a takeaway coffee in the morning and find out that they can pop back at lunchtime and do the same for their lunch too.
Eventually we expect to be able to offer baked potatoes too alongside the soup – it’s just a case of making sure we don’t overstretch ourselves by being too ambitious too quickly.
We’re really excited to see where this road leads, the adversity has demanded creativity and we’re big believers here that great things come when creativity meets determination.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Thank you for all the support you’ve given us over the last few months while we’ve worked hard to get the doors open – it’s been stressful at times, and you really do sometimes just have to laugh. For now though, we’re out of the blocks and ready to start building, and we’re so glad you’re right alongside us, now with a lunchtime soup snack!
