The Rusty Lady, a name derived from a passion, desire and a will. It is a sporty little story that will surely give you a lovely tiny thrill.

A few energetic folk sought entertainment one evening in deciding which race was extra tough? A Swim, a Ride or a Run. They argued till the wee hours of the morning, until one brave soul said, Enough!!!! Let us create a race that will settle this squabble once and for all! Only the toughest will finish it in an allotted time, even if they have to crawl! Distance, time and basic rules all settled the planned race was as solid as a wall. The only real problem left was this grueling race what should we call? It had to be a name that defined success, strength, stamina, and will to win being your only plan. Margaret Thatcher had already claimed the name Iron Lady, so they settled for second best and called it Iron Man!

Now back to the story on Rusty Lady but you see your wonderful charming host Charmy is a full Iron Man no less than three times. Although she has focus, the strength and passion and the will power to prevail, getting up early in the morning to go out and train, can leave her quite grouchy and somewhat pale! So mornings like these some motivation is definitely in need and her beloved is always happy to plant that essential seed. “Get up and off you go to victory as an Iron Man medal is in need! For this morning you more like a Rusty Lady, laid back, relaxed and very chilled indeed!”

So out of this story the “Rusty Lady” name was created, and when your host Charmy opened this establishment, there was no name to be debated. Rusty Lady it would be, a sense of perfection, will and drive to meet the customers every desire. With a tranquil laid back feeling, good food, good wine and a marvelous evening just to retire.

The Rusty Lady now a name ingrained in person and establishment will strive to make your visit here wondrous and lasting and a source of total enjoyment.

So relax and enjoy and let them take care of you in their lustrous manner and just maybe, in the future when you in need of some motivation or a good meal, one thing will sprint to mind – Rusty Lady
