Valentines Night at The Nook On The Square

Known only as a daytime cafe at present The Nook On The Square is looking into the possibility of opening in the evening for private dining, one off events and even maybe a regular supper club.
It's not easy, and takes a lot of planning, but the end result is always worth the many hours of preparation and hard graft.

Valentines night was our first proper evening event. We had prepared a 3 course menu and were fully booked within a week or so of advertising.
Below you can see a photo of our back room with dimmed lights, plenty of candles, tablecloths and fully laid tables. It all looked beautiful and romantic.
