Did you know…

The meaning of “Let the Cat Out Of The Bag”
This phrase is said to have come from the Master-at-Arms on a British ship taking the cat-o’-nine – tails from its bag preparatory to whipping an errant seaman. Since the connection between this action and disclosing a secret is hard to define, a reference to a country market trick is more acceptable : a dishonest merchant would substitute a cat for a valuable pig. The bag containing the animal would not be opened until the buyer brought it home and had been cheated (Alexia thinks it would have had to been a dead cat, otherwise the buyer deserved to be cheated!!!) Letting the cat out of the bag any earlier would have disclosed the trick. The saying probably dates from the mid 1700’s.

Week two of the new Winter Menu starts on Monday 14th October. Please place any orders by Thursday lunchtime.
Bon Appetit!
