Who was Saint Valentine?
There are many theories but the most likely was a young Italian priest called Valentine. The story goes that in the third century A.D. Emperor Claudius II thought that single men made better soldiers so he banned marriage for young men of fighting age! The young priest felt that this was unjust and defied the Emperor and continued to marry young lovers in secret. When his defiance became known he was imprisoned and sentenced to death. He was executed on 14th February, 270A.D. To this day many couples still favor this date for marriages, engagements and declarations of love.
This year we are celebrating Saint Valentine with a wonderful 4 course menu that includes Italian Dip, Lobster Manicotti , Tuxedo Cake, Chocolate Mousse Bombe and much more. Remember we are BYOB so you may bring your own wine, we don't even charge a corkage fee!
