Spring seems to have just passed us by here at The Church Green! After Aiden’s success on Great British Menu and my promise to marry him if he won, we decided to jet off to Mauritius to affirm our relationship and tie the knot. We’re delighted to now be Mr and Mrs Byrne and are looking forward to a very happy future together.
Not only have we been serving many of Aiden’s delicious Great British Menu dishes in the restaurant, but we’ve been repainting the outside of the building and getting all the outdoor furniture fit for summer.
Last month we also hosted a charity gourmet evening in aid of our new charity of the year, Brainwave, raising over £4380 for this worthy cause.
Brainwave works with families to deliver individual, home based therapy and exercises for children with disabilities and Development Delay to help them reach their full potential. This can be anything from walking to recognising numbers. The Charity looks after a whole range of children with conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome and Autism.
Family is very important to us, as is our local community and the people within it. When we were looking for a charity to nominate for the year we knew we wanted something that had some association to all of those elements, and Brainwave was the perfect choice. By giving our time and resources, whilst reaching out to our customers to ask them to engage with our fundraising efforts, we know we will be able to help and support many families in the area, making a difference to their everyday lives.
With the weather seemingly brightening up, the lighter evenings and our mission to continually use produce that is in season, we have created some exciting new dishes and cocktails for you to enjoy.
Our salad menu gives you the opportunity to combine your favourite ingredients, giving you the perfect summer salad. Options include Asian vegetable salad, Greek salad, Caesar salad, etc, with toppings including Chilli and coriander with medium rare beef, Grilled garlic and lemon tuna, Grilled chicken, and so on.
Our cocktail menu is brimming with exotic and classic blends to suit all palates – we’ve even got some fun non-alcoholic ones for the kids to enjoy! Perfect in the afternoon sun on our decked area, as a pre-dinner drink or night out with the girls!
And finally, Friday wouldn’t be Friday without a fresh fish dish. Our fish Friday dishes are cooked freshly on our Inka grill and you get to choose your garnish. Fish and garnishes change on a weekly basis depending on what has been caught.
So, we hope to see you very soon. Enjoy our summer menu and fingers crossed for some warm, sunny weather.
