A Little Taste of Summer

We’re definitely starting to enjoy a little more daylight at this time of year but with such a cold nip in the air, summer still seems such a long, long time off.

If your mind is on warm sunny days, here’s a little taste of sunshine from our kitchen team to tide you over.

As you’re tucking in, think sitting outside The Ship while enjoying food and drinks al fresco!
