Isn’t it chilly?!  The bakery looses all it’s baking heat over the weekend, and come Monday morning, I sit down to write the menu and can see my breath.  So, I’ve thrown in a stew for Wednesday because the very thought is making me feel warmer.    My phone has a picture of a snowflake for Wednesday.  We’re gonna need that stew.


And in other news, we’re just a week and a bit away from the next Stirchley-on-Sea! Have you emailed your order yet?!

Good day to you, keep warm

Stirchley-on-Sea part deux, 28th January, 7-9.30pm

January 14, 2015 1 comment »

After the success of our first Stirchley-on-Sea event in November, we’re at it again at the end of January, taking a distinctly North Atlantic theme this time with some great Scandiwegian dishes on offer. As before it’ll be casual eat-in at the bakery, or takeaway if you prefer (but why not come and enjoy the atmosphere?!). You can bring a bottle too, we recommend Stirchley Wines and Spirits just down the road. Check out the menu below, please feel free to share widely. Thanks once again to Kerry Leslie for a top notch flyer.
