Plenty to tantalise the taste buds at Stratford hotel open day

THERE will be plenty to tantalise the taste buds at a Stratford hotel next weekend.

A summer spread is being laid on by local food and drink businesses at The Arden Hotel on Chapel Lane on Saturday July 6.

Local businesses will be sharing tasting samples in the hotel’s restaurant during the open day running from 12pm until 4pm.

Carbon-neutral spirit producer Shakespeare Distillery, craft coffee roastery Monsoon Estates, and family-run wine producer Welcombe Hill Wines are providing free beverage samples.

Barry the Butcher, hand-crafted chocolate producer Henley Chocolates, and producer of speciality foods such as artisan cheese Harvey & Brockless, are supplying free nibbles.

Visitors can also enjoy live music from Louise Hatton on the hotel’s outdoor terrace, where a selection of drinks will be available to purchase.

Admission to the event is free.

General manager Sai Nathan said: “Our annual open day is a great show of community spirit where the general public can not only find out more about our hotel’s facilities and history – which Wiliam Shakespeare himself used to frequent – it also provides the chance to sample some of the region’s best food and drink from local suppliers.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming locals and those from further afield for a relaxed afternoon in our outdoor terrace.

“Our area has a whole host of local producers who, like us, are very passionate about the products and service they provide. This is the perfect opportunity for people to taste that passion.”
