Thirsty Bits

We know that delicious grub should really be accompanied by some finer grape juice, so we have carefully put together a selection of some of our recommendations to accompany your hamper, we have been lucky enough to source some fantastic locally produced wines. If you have something in particular in mind let us know and we can try and hunt it down for you. We’ve also included some G&T’s and craft beers as well as some lovely soft drinks. 

If you'd like to include any of these drinks with your hamper or picnic, we will be able to arrange this after you have placed your order.

 

For any spring chickens please don't be offended if we ask you to prove your age if you look under the age of 25. We can't sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18. Please drink responsibly.
