Stir Up Sunday

A couple of wonderfully delicious and warming dishes for our specials this week. See menu below for details of our 2 course meals delivered to your home for lunch or supper only £9.95.

Yesterday was “Stir Up Sunday”. Not, as you might think from the name, a day to cause ructions and arguments; but a day to mix Christmas pudding. The expression comes from a Christian text i.e. the opening words of the collect for the day in the1549 book of common prayer. This comes on the last Sunday before advent which means Christmas itself is approaching fast!

” Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded”

1549 Book of Common Prayer
