November at Cheeky Monkey

November has arrived – the other half and myself were going to jump into the pool last night for a dare – seeing that is was Halloween……………. Luckily self-preservation stepped in and a mug of hot chocolate was consumed instead………

Winter additions to the menu as of next week include Fisherman’s Pie, which is Sole/Crab/Prawns in a creamy white sauce, covered with  mashed potato and cheese and baked in the oven……… And also the favourite classic of liver and bacon in a rich gravy, served with mash or chips, and garden peas…..

October

Welcome to October…………..and apart from the occasional shower, the weather has been fantastic, though our swimming pool is a bit on the nippy side now.

Sorry this is a day late – Cheeky Monkey were hosting APAC ’s (Asociacion Protectora de Animales de El Campello) first ever “Waggy Walk” which was a sponsored walk around Coveta Fuma – both dog owners and those without dogs came down and there were various craft and tombola stalls in the square including delicious homemade cakes which were sold from the bar. The morning was a great success and we are hoping that they will hold the event every 6 months or so. If you didn’t manage to join us and want to participate we have a “name the cheeky monkey” in the bar. This is a soft toy clutching a bottle of brandy and a small hamper. All you need to do is spend 50 cents per guess to choose what its name is from a list.

Quiz started every Thursday from mid-September and our fabulous Sunday roast lunches start next Sunday (9th October). Look out on our menu board as the winter favourites of “Fisherman’s Pie” (Sole/prawns/crab in a creamy sauce topped with mashed potato and cheese) and the popular traditional “Liver and Bacon” will be back on the menu soon.
