Festival Food Diaries

By May 27, 2021No Comments

Elderflower Fields offers food and drink for every appetite and occasion. There is British, international, vegan, gluten-free, kids sizes, hot, cold, savoury and sweet. Everything is served up by friendly local businesses who are passionate about what they do. Many of our vendors return every year and have become part of the Elderflower Fields family. Here’s an idea of what your festival journey may look like. From a tummies perspective of course!

Day One
  • First stop, send the kids down to 800 Degrees for a pizza or Posh Spuds for a jacket potato in the camping field while setting up camp. This will of course be followed by an icecream from Tony at nearby Carnival Ices.  Full tummies = happy kids!
  • Head for a well-deserved beer or glass of wine at the new Woodland Bar Airstream, Space + Thyme. 
  • Supper time. Through the woods to the Dragonfly Bar – pitch up and listen to some music, meet friends and grab a delicious lamb curry wrap from Curry Cook House or a californian vegan Po’Boy from Flux.
  • The kids will soon find Zoe at Waffle on a Stick – pud sorted.
Day Two
  • First things first. Grab a coffee at the Campsite Bar and meander to the showers.
  • Refreshed and clean, head for breakfast. So much to choose from… a full English at The Breakfast Club on the Lazy Glades Path, or a fabulous bacon sarnie freshly prepared at Westlands BBQ.
  • Drop the kids at the prebooked Sports Camp then relax with a delicious barista coffee from The Grey Earl.
  • Exercise done, time for a sweet treat at Oui Creperie for all that effort, or a plate of poffertjes (mini dutch pancakes) from The Little Pancake Place.
  • Try something different for a late lunch – an Egyptian falafel wrap from Cairovan on Lazy Glades path or Vietnamese lemongrass chicken from Thai Angle.
  • Afternoon hot drinks and smoothies from Fine Grind on Dragonfly Hill, with a couple of brownies thrown in.
  • Saturday supper and a meander – Caribbean goat curry from the Bajan Jerk Box or a burrito from Down Mexico Way, then some cheeky cocktails at the Cocktail Bar and late-night dancing at the silent disco.

 

Day Three
  • Breakfast burritos from Brad at Manjula are a must-try before having an early morning family kayaking session on the lake.
  • Afterwards, a fruity lolly from Lickalix en route to the kid’s Art Camp.
  • Soak up some sun on Leapfrog Lawns with a sneaky G&T from Simon at Juniper Express.
  • Then a Pizza Wagon lunch for everyone before heading Into The Trees for some shade. Jane at the Wildside Bar is serving foraged beer and cordials, really tasty!
  • Supper will be a hard decision tonight between a delicious plate of mackerel and chips from Ollies Fish Shack or a juicy gourmet burger with stichelton cheese from Jacobs Ladder.
Day Four
  • Jackson’s General Store are on-site all weekend for camping essentials offering the chance to stock up on a few bits and spend the day exploring Pippingford Park.
  • Afternoon tea from Betsy’s cute caravan and handmade ice cream and all the toppings for the kids from Vintage Scoops. An extra nights camping so no driving means it’s rude not to include a glass of something fizzy from the bar to round off the festival.
  • ‘Last night’ choice supper; let everyone choose their favourite place to dine then pitch up and eat together with old friends or new.
  • Don’t forget to let the kids stock up on sweets for the journey home from The Little Sweet Shop.
