The Bistro………

Last Friday Joanne, Katie and I went along to help celebrate the launch of the new alfresco Bistro at The Eastbury Hotel in Sherborne. Over 60 people attended the evening event, hosted by owners Nicky and Paul King, and Head Chef Brett Sutton.

 Guests enjoyed canapés that gave a glimpse of The Bistro menu including: Barrington asparagus with wild garlic leaf butter; Dorset crab cocktail; dark chocolate mousse with griottine cherries and crushed amaretti – of course we had to sample a few ourselves!

The Bistro has been designed and built by Castle Gardens of Sherborne, complete with raised flower beds with glowing LED lights embedded within the wooden borders, and one side that is enclosed by plants and trees that will provide ingredients for future menus such as, a rosemary bush, plum trees, blackcurrant bushes and an olive tree.

The area is covered by a giant, Italian designed umbrella with fitted heaters (also known as a ‘Jumbrella’ – we love that word!). Guests can keep their legs warm as the night draws in with the very carefully selected woollen rugs provided – in fact they were so carefully chosen that they only arrived a matter of hours before the launch!

Lastly, on the domestic front,  our own Nickie is moving house this weekend  – two children, two ponies, one cat, one dog and 15 years worth of stuff………..good luck!
