Alongside his comments, James shared a series of photos taken outside of the terrace, drenched in summer sunshine.
Fortunately, his fans were quick to support his work endeavours and told him all was “forgiven”.
One said: “It’s so good to see your absolute devotion to food and customers.”
Another replied: “Hey, never apologise for working bl**dy hard, that what forges success.”(sic)
A third commented: “You’re forgiven for being knackered James it’s been a full on week since you opened and it’s great to see that you are fully booked and that the new menu is going down a storm too. Have a G&T and a cigar when you get home to relax. Big love fella to you and the team xx.”
Saturday Morning with James Martin airs today at 9.25am on ITV.
