(NOTE: Please do not call the restaurant directly as we operate independently, just renting the space for events – day of event reservations can be made by phone, as I’ll be cooking & not checking e-mail on Sunday).

Vegetarian choices are available – please request if interested.

We were thrilled that the last dinner sold out…with a waiting list…and people coming to the door. Please ensure your place at the table by reserving early!

And as usual, I’ll be cooking up tasty samples at the Portland Farmer’s Market at the Springwater Farm booth this coming Saturday.  Come by, say hi, taste mushrooms!  As a special treat, there will be samples of the Tamworth heritage-breed pork (the pork that Roger raises for the dinners).

See you at the market!
