Carpet advice from Fluffy Side Up
Planning to redecorate and change your flooring? Make sure to choose the carpets or floor tiles first because the range of colours is not as wide as that of paint or wallpaper.
Sacha Thompson, from Fluffy Side Up, says this advice is commonly shared by interior designers and she has noticed that people often have difficulty choosing flooring if the rest of the work has been done.
“Flooring is the first thing to think about and the last thing to fit,” she said.
She added that Fluffy Side Up is able to offer advice on the best flooring to suit your needs and you are welcome to call in and browse the selection available in their High Street shop.
New Batch Brew coffee at Hartfields
Hartfields has a new Batch Brew coffee. Owner James Hartfield says they weigh and pour exactly the right amount for a long black coffee, giving a delicate and fruity taste, showing off the subtle flavours of their blend.
He adds: “This is a great alternative to Americano if you fancy something a bit different without some of the bitterness associated with espresso-based coffee. Just remember to have it with a lot less milk than Americano, or even black is great.”
Hartfields Iced Tea is still on the specials menu at the coffee shop and kitchen along with local apple and raspberry smoothie – both those drinks can be made boozy by adding a shot of brandy, gin or vodka.
Also on the specials menu are light bites of smoked haddock fish cake with mixed salad and sweet chillo mayo and baked brie flat mushroom with Mediterranean salad.
Mains include Local Handmade Sausages and Mash with red wine gravy, herby buttered local greens and beer battered onion rings; Mexican Baked Eggs with spicy tomato sauce, peppers, onions, melted parmesan, coriander, creme fraiche, avocado, and warm tortilla, and Basil Pesto and Buffalo Mozzarella Wrap with tomatoes, fresh peppers and rocket.
