We offer weekly lunch specials including our quiches and desserts
We have many groups who visit us on a weekly and fortnightly basis. Our Golden Years group come every two weeks throughout the year and enjoy a set two course home cooked meal followed by tea & coffee. It's a lovely group with people from all around the local area. We have a walking group on a Monday afternoon, who enjoy one of the many walks around Ardington before finishing with us for refreshments. We have many different cycling groups who stop by for cake and drinks or lunch. We also have a local exercise group who finish their class with us each week, as well as a tennis group and many others.
We cater for group bookings of all sizes and can accommodate both small and large groups. Babyshowers, reunions etc. We hosted a very pink babyshower in October, where the ladies enjoyed lunch, played games, exchanged gifts and we made a simple pink iced victoria sponge for them to decorate.
Many businesses visit us to hold meetings and combine lunch. We have recently held a surprise birthday breakfast gathering for 20, a surprise birthday lunch, tea and cakes for the residents and carers of a local care home from Wantage and a child's ice cream party for 30. Which involved mocktails of orange juice, lemonade and ribena, crushed ice and orange slices. They all enjoyed 2 scoops of their chosen ice cream with limitless toppings and a simple Belgium chocolate birthday cake. They played games in the garden as well as conducting science experiments.
Another recent party for a 6 year old girl included designing their own sundaes with different craft supplies, blue raspbrry flavour Slushies and making their own sundaes.They also finished their party with Ice Cream sweet cones for their guests instead of traditional party bags.
In November 2018 we have hosted a continental cheese, meat, pate etc birthday lunch for 20 and a fun 9th Ice Cream party birthday. They designed their own sundaes, drank slushies, had basket meals, beat a pinata, made their own sundaes, had a disco and left with Ice Cream sweet cones. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
In March 2019 we hosted a belated Christmas Party! Wantage Rock Choir joined us for an evening of eating, drinking, games and singing. They had a great evening and left us this review:
