“The smiling faces and kind words have meant more to us then I’m sure you know. We have been working tirelessly to run our business at the high standards yourselves and ourselves expect.

“Unfortunately this has proven increasingly difficult and therefore we have made the incredibly difficult decision to temporarily limit our food offering.”
