Gatcombe Park Food & Drink Festival

Gatcombe Park

30th July to 1st August 2021

Although we had one or two short showers, the sun made an appearance for most of the time… and boy! was it warm then!!

We met lots of lovely new customers this weekend as well as a couple of regulars who popped by to say hello. We even had a Royal purchase…. an Aeropress for the boat. HRH Princess Ann and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence popped by for a chat on Saturday afternoon, and then came back on Sunday afternoon to make their purchase. I’m not sure we can claim ‘By Royal Appointment’ just yet :-).

Also a new farm shop enquiry came in. We met a great farming couple who are opening their Farm Shop in the vicinity. This will be another local outlet selling only local produce and our locally roasted great coffee – obviously.

Our new Black Ram House Blend went down a storm. We call it coffee with a kick…it has 30% more caffeine than our usual coffees and is also a medium roast to retain as much of the flavour and caffeine as possible. This one will definitely wake you up… 

All in all, a great weekend, with some very tired staff.
