December’s food and wine pairing evening

tasting our way around Northern Spain

With the festive season upon us and just weeks until Christmas we’ll all be looking forward to delicious seasonal food and drink in abundance.

What better way to start December than trying out some new wines that might take you into Christmas with a sparkle?

The next wine and food pairing evening will be held on Wednesday, 5th December, at 7pm. These monthly events are relaxed, fun and informal evenings where you’ll try a wide selection of wines – some you may know and also some lesser known grape varieties.

Each wine is served with a delicious little plate of food created by our head chef to complement the wine.

Our wine man Frederik Van Niekerk is a passionate wine expert with over 12 years of experience in the drinks industry and with WSET qualifications (Wines and Spirits Education Trust). His fun and knowledgeable approach to the evenings makes for good entertainment.

And although we’re tasting wines from Northern Spain, we’re sure if you got questions about the best tipples for Christmas from all the other wine regions– Fred will be able to give you the very best recommendations!

Our wine and food pairing evenings cost £32.50 per person, and you’ll need to ring to reserve your place on 01452 740547

Post-Christmas and New Year Menu

At this time of the year (from 28th December – 5th January) we are unable to offer our usual a la carte menu, due to fish markets being closed.
This results in the very limited availability of fresh fish, nationally.
We do however offer a perfectly wonderful alternative range of delicious choices on our menu that will set your taste buds working overtime.

New Winter season exhibition

Our current exhibition ‘Passion’ will shortly be replaced by a brand new selection of artwork which will be open to view on the 28th November 2017.

The new exhibition entitled ‘Found’ calls for the artists to interpret the theme as broadly as possible.  The resulting artwork is reflective, innovative and engaging, offering different subjects, personal approaches and media. All work is for sale and features the work of 26 talented artists, many who exhibit their work nationally and internationally. It ranges from drawing and printmaking through to painting, jewellery and photography. The Old Passage exhibition policy asks that each sale results in a donation from the artist to help support activities of the Severn Area Rescue Association’s life-saving search and rescue work on the River Severn.

Over 60 new work will be exhibited in ‘Found’…this painting by Rachel McDonnell ‘from Hyde Hill’
