It’s been a little manic of late, I have a lot going on, and some big news!
Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended the Lymm Festival cookery demonstration last month. It was a very worthwhile experience for me, and I hoped you all gained something from the night! I will be publishing the recipes from the demonstration in the next couple of blogs. It was great to meet you all, I know that a few have been into The Church Green since, I hope you enjoyed your meals. Those of you who haven’t had a chance to pop up yet, don’t forget your free glass of wine vouchers when you go!
I have spent a good deal of time in The Church Green kitchen with Jim and the team working on a fresh new menu. New dishes include a light and refreshing tomato and peach salad with pine nut dressing for starters, suckling pig with Braeburn apples or roasted wild sea bass with grapes apple and celery for mains. Why not take a look at our menus online. Jim is currently working on a fresh new summer dessert menu too!
Some very exciting news, something we have been working very hard on, but keeping very tight lipped about is the opening of a third restaurant!
On 29th July the ‘Aiden Byrne British Grill’ will open at the Macdonald Hotels Craxton Wood site. We are looking to introduce the same style of dishes already available at The Church Green and The Collingwood. We want Craxton Wood, like our current venues, to be for everyone. We want to showcase British cooking in a relaxing venue in tune with what the public want.
Both Sarah and myself have been spending a great deal of time with the team at Craxton Wood over the last couple of weeks, teaching them our values and ethos, and it is great that they are so enthusiastic about working with us.
The Collingwood is busy too, Louis and his team have been busy writing new menus and the Keeping it local menu has proved very popular, especially with the free glass of wine with the meal Monday to Thursday!!
