Our new riverside tea garden is open and ready for business. We had ladies having tea earlier there this week after attending a tea dance at Brotton. The weather has been good this week, plenty of sun which means people enjoy sitting out. More work for us going up and down the steps, but that's why we have the youngsters working for us lol !!! Our pie n mash nights are going well, with group bookings going on to the Esk Valley Theatre, Glaisdale to see the comedy All things Considered, mixed with holiday makers and locals. Lealholm is really buzzing with lots of tourists, its such a pretty village with lots to do and the moors are such a great place to walk with the views out of this world and the heather just starting to come out. As I type this it's raining and a quiet morning, rain forecast all day but sun at the weekend. The plus side is we can get a few jobs done like the blog and look at the craft area changing a few bits about and having a coffee!
