Welcome to the very first ‘Bull at Burford Bulletin’
When it was recently put to me that we could have a blog on our shiny new Bull at Burford website I thought they were politely telling me that something had gone terribly wrong… But once it had all been explained I decided it was a good idea.
When I first started in the catering business in the 1960s – as a young restaurant apprentice in Montpellier in the South of France – the world was a very small place.
In many ways the catering business is just the same – ours is a service industry where the customer’s experience, meal or stay is the most important thing – but in other ways it’s changed enormously.
Everyone around the world can now research our hotel and others in minute detail, see the bedrooms, read the restaurant menus, check out the special offers and read the all-important reviews online, and of course make bookings either directly with us on www.bullatburford.co.uk or in lots of other ways. Soon I’m sure someone will devise a way to smell the cooking online!
So it was an easy decision: why not have a regular despatch, a ‘Bulletin’, letting people know about our various offers, the goings-on at the hotel, our menu changes, special visitors and also recipes and ‘Top Tips’ from myself and Pablo our head chef.
No Top Tip this time – there will be one in the second Bulletin – but a reminder that for all of August we have summer holidays special offer allowing one child to eat free on our children’s menu for every adult that eats a main course.
Also, if you fancy a Cotswold getaway break or you have people coming to stay, we have some amazing deals at the moment on Bed and Breakfast and Dinner Bed & Breakfast booking online. Well worth a look.
