Please see below for details of our mouth watering specials for today. We can serve these to you at home for lunch or supper, alternatively in the cafe or the riverside terrace for lunch. We open Tuesday through to Saturday and serve breakfasts until 11.30 AM. Lunch is available from mid day, and we recommend you contact us first to book a table. With a very busy Ludlow weekend coming up for the food festival remember the peace and tranquility of our riverside location offers a chance to get away from the hurly burly of the town centre.
It seems like we’re in for a bit of an Indian Summer, the next couple of days at least. I was wondering how it was described in other cultures/languages. A quick wikipedia search showed me these variations:
“Similar weather conditions, with local variations also exist. A warm period in autumn is called “Altweibersommer” (“old women’s summer”) in Germany, and in a number of Slavic-language countries. In Bulgaria and Serbia, it is known as “gypsy summer” or “poor man’s summer”. In Sweden, there’s “Brittsommar” (out of “Birgitta” and “Britta”, having their name days around the time, October 7). In Finland, the period is today called “intiaanikesä”, a direct translation, but historically a warm period in autumn was named after Bartholomew, his saint day being in late August. In Gaelic Ireland, the phenomenon is called “fómhar beag na ngéanna” (little autumn of the geese).In temperate parts of South America the phenomenon is known as “Veranico”, “Veranito” or “Veranillo” (literally, “little summer”), and usually occurs in early autumn between late April and mid-May, when it is known as “Veranico de Maio” (“May’s little summer”) or as “Veranito de San Juan” (“Saint John’s little summer”)
