After searching the local area for suitable premises we were fortunate to find an empty industrial unit. This gave us a blank canvas to design our own kitchen, tasting area and office. We involved the environmental health department from an early stage to ensure compliance with food and hygiene regulations were being met. We were delighted to be awarded a […]
We often get asked how we can cook a three course meal in a field? Ta Da….. We have today taken delivery of our second new cooker which is used not only at our premises but is on castors so is able to be transported and set up where ever we require. Being gas, we bring a cylinder with us, […]
Are you decorating your venue? I have seen lots of decorations over the years, some look amazing but some don’t work so well.
