Sunday, 31 July 2011


They start 'em young in the 'Shires....

We are very proud to be offering two varieties of Scrumpers Gold cider for tasting at the cafe (buying from Baynham's Farm House, Ledbury, as the cafe isn't licensed).  We had great fun last autumn collecting the fruit from ancient cider fruit orchards at Grafton and Conderton (near Tewkesbury and with sight of May Hill!).  Pete, Colin and Reese pressed the apples (with help from Tim and David) using Baynhams's vintage twin-screw (Colin was overheard commenting that two is always better than one...).  We watched on with baited (well, frozen) breath, as the cider slowly managed to work it's way through the coldest winter I've ever known....and the result is absolutely delicious!  Please come and try for yourself - prices start at £2.50 for a 1l bottle (£1.75 if you have your own container).

We were offline last week so apologies for a rather belated post of last weeks menu, and some photos from the week before.  We are busily planning our Big Chill week menu (Thursday 4th - Monday 9th August) - with the abundance of beetroot in the garden I'm feeling another beetroot and carrot salad coming on (it was so yummy), and a few people are suffering withdrawal symptoms from the Turkey and Sweetcorn meatballs so it seems only fair to bring them back!  We'll be opening on Monday the 9th to coincide with the Big Chill dates, so if you're one of the unfortunate ones stuck in traffic outside Posterity, please pop in!
