Due to health risks both to our guests and ourselves (we are both in our 70's) we are currently closed.
We don't expect to re-open until these health risks have substantially changed.
We are sorry to disappoint our many regular guests and friends, and hope that we might see you again sometime in the future.
With best wishes from Monica and Brian

About our new website

It’s superficially very similar to the previous version, but ‘under the hood’ everything has changed…

We’ve made everything ‘responsive’, so that each page changes its layout to suit whatever device it’s viewed on. And we’ve re-built it to run on a ‘CMS’ – a database driven content management system – with a user-friendly control panel for us to compile all the text and pictures.

Our previous site, created in 2004, used html tables for layout

Making our content-rich pages responsive, but without sacrificing readability, has been quite a challenge. You can see for yourself what we’ve done, by reducing the width of your browser on a PC, or rotating your mobile device.

Hopefully our new mobile-friendly site will be more accessible and engaging for visitors, and much easier for us to keep up-to-date.

But there’s been another objective in all this. Brian’s had months of geeky fun, learning new coding skills.

He’s planning to do a longer write-up, ‘sometime soon’, about the whole project. In the meantime, here’s a quick list of some of the key technologies he’s learned, and used, so far:
