Well, I’d be pulling everyones leg if I tried to suggest it was an ‘ordinary’ year. It has been huge. Moving a restaurant from Woodend to Kyneton has been a wild and curvaceous ride. That said, I think we have now arrived. Of course there is still much to do, (and if I ever reach a point where I thought there wasn’t, it would be time to re-think the plan).
Our staff deserve an enormous thank you. They have shown their trust and support every step of the way. Our family, ditto. The dining room just would not have been ready without their work.
We are about to hand on the Woodend site. We wish the new proprietors nothing but the best. We spent much of the past eight years on deck and we hope the tradition continues. (It was always a clever initiative to place a restaurant space at the back there.) Onward and upward to all.
There are lovely plans and priorities afoot for 2018.
A panel style salon series – ‘DUOS’ – is in the works.
Further detailing and managing the acoustics in the dining room.
Re-furnishing. That’s right. Fresh tables and chairs for a comfortable High Street hideaway.
Peace on Earth. Goodwill to All.
