We are now in full swing with PYO. The table top strawberries have about finished and we are replanting to give us an autumn crop. These should be ready about August. The open ground strawberries are now ready and we have several varieties to pick. Korona and Alice are delicious, sweet varieties with a soft skin and flesh. They taste wonderful but do not keep long. Eros and Fenella are a bit firmer in texture and will keep longer.
Raspberries are just starting and we should have lots over next week.
We have tons of cabbage ready along with broccoli. The caulis are just starting.
Rhubarb, blackcurrants and gooseberries are plentiful.
We have now started our evening opening and will be open on fine evenings until 8pm. If the weather is suspect please phone to confirm closing times.
Our Steak night was a great success in the tearoom and we plan to repeat it later. On Thursday 3rd July we have a special "Essitalian" evening when we will be serving Essington food with an Italian flavour. We still have tables available so book now
Look out also for our wartime menu to celebrate VJ night in August.
We look forward to welcoming you.
