The history behind The Famous Pot Luck Menu

Pot Luck Monday at The Horn of Plenty is a tradition that has lived on for over 50 years!

Originating at a time when food deliveries were only made on Tuesday mornings, come Monday night following a busy weekend’s service, founders Patrick and Sonia Stevenson were left to create a menu using only the remaining produce left in their fridge and larder.

So the menu was reduced, the price was cut, but the quality was to always remain high.

Pot Luck Night became one of the most popular nights of the week in The Horn of Plenty restaurant, becoming a tradition that still lives on today in spite of the fact that these days we are blessed with daily deliveries and an on going availability of dishes.

These days, our special Pot Luck Night Menu offers a selection of three starters, main courses and desserts, priced at £32.50 for all three courses. Additional course choices are available, at a small supplement.  The menu changes weekly.

Guests staying on our Dinner, bed & breakfast package are welcome to choose any menu item without surcharge.
