Thank you for your review, and I am pleased that you enjoyed your visit. The Chicken Sausage Roll is an item that we haven't had for a while, and I made them so that we could have something different.

Thank you for your review, Leonie, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. The torte is a weekend special, and is very popular. We put it on Saturdays and Sundays in response to customer requests.
