Bespoke Trios !

It’s a new academic year and wedding season is continuing. Last week we were at our old favourite the Tithe Barn to celebrate the wedding of Vicky and Josh.

Vicky and Josh had their own personal wedding planner, in the form of Carole, Vicky’s mum who really was an absolute delight to deal with and I think she should change her career and do this professionally.

Luckily it was a fine sunny day and Vicky looked amazing.  I have also never seen the barn decorated so beautifully. Susanna at Tiger Rose did an amazing job of the flowers ( and when Carole forwards the photos I will post some on our face book page.

142 guests feasted on the menu as below. Our chefs always love doing a trio of desserts and the bespoke trio was a triumph. You have to try our head chef Lee’s hand made coconut ice cream, once you have tried this there will be no turning back.  


Red Onion Tart Tatin , Golden goats cheese with Rocket and Pine Nut Salad & Balsamic Syrup

Main Course

Roast 3 Bone Rack of Hampshire Lamb with chilli and mint jus

Celeriac & Shitake Torte with Chargrilled Asparagus on Yellow pepper


Dauphinoise potatoes served on plate

Seasonal Vegetables


Trio of desserts

Baked Lemon Meringue with Lemon Curd on an almond sable, Coconut Ice cream on a banana leaf, white chocolate cheesecake with a raspberry coulis

It’s September and the nights are drawing in, I have my lights on my bicycle and soon it will be long trousers each morning, however we are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather as the next two weeks are the busiest of the year for us.

This weekend we celebrate the marriages of Pippa and Rowan at the Tithe, Sarah and Karl at the Tithe, Victoria and Marcus in Lymingtion, Laura and Howard in Brokenhursts and Edward and Jean at the wonderful Hill Place. All very different menus with completely bespoke menus .
