When you're at one with nature for the weekend we find those sensual pleasures of food and drink take on new levels of enjoyment. We have some lovely options for food at the festival, from our carefully designed stands and concessions to our glorious dining tent which hosts our really fun food events - we've tried to think of everything.
Choose to grab something to eat from:
Fresh and healthy Lebanese and Mediterranean salads for you to choose to be boxed up and taken to enjoy in the 50 acres of the site. Inspired by the food of the Ottoman Emperors, this food is perfect for picnics.
We want everyone to be happy every hour of the day, so we'll be making sure that fresh, locally sourced, healthy food will be available in our festival style adult Tuck Shop - The Hatch. 'Classy' options like asparagus in caramelised butter, fresh fruit, avocado on toast are balanced with 'Trashy' with crumpets, chips, and toasties.
The seaside town on the north coast of Spain, Getaria is famous for its incredible food and is inspiration for our restaurant. Come and sit by the lake, and get yourself a plate of Padróns and a beer. (To get Getaria started off as we mean to go - we're offering two tapas and a glass of wine or beer on the Friday night for £15.)
We'll be welcoming back to the festival the Red Banger catering outfit with their sustainably sourced produce in their iconic bright red, Citroen H Van.
Caffeine pit stop
We know how important coffee is to our festival-crowd, so we'll have two coffee trucks on site to make sure you never go without, a political café style coffee house near The Safari Hotel and a Mini based coffee concession the main site.
We also recommend booking on a food event or two:
We do love our food events and programme them carefully - working with experimental food outfit, James Knight (Rotorino, Moro) and Rebecca Oteroto create food like you've never seen at a festival before to complement your festival experience. How about?
Summer Heights High Dinner
Pitch your tent or check in to the Safari Hotel, and head over to our Friday night dinner to begin your weekend in style. There will be three celebratory courses of food local to Warwickshire, in season, and largely sourced from within 10 miles of the festival. Pre book £30.
Arriving later? Want to get in to the swing of things? Think of this banquet as a crazy, kitschy-adult-panto-banquet. Imagine the scene - there's been a shipwreck, join the salty seadogs, the saucy pirates or the East Also Trading Company to find and claim the treasure before coming together for a beautifully put together candlelit tavern banquet with lashings of cocktails to match. Late Night Friday £25 (includes grog cocktail, press-ganging and shots of rum).
Set yourself up for a Super-Saturday in our beautiful dining tent, with lashings of tea, coffee, fruit juice, yogurts, eggs, fruits, bacon, sausages, and freshly baked breads in this delightful, elegant Frühstück experience with all the best bits of a good old English cooked breakfast as well. £20 (adults) £12 (children)
Summer Afternoon Tea
Our now legendary full afternoon tea is lovingly put together and served by Mrs Rooney and the Poly Girls in the specially decorated Dining Tent. This event is a gorgeous way to pause, to enjoy the surroundings, the joy of eating surrounded by the scent and sounds of summer while being served a delicious selection of sandwiches, cakes and tea and a glass of prosecco. Saturday from 3pm. £20 (Adults). £12 (Children).
'What Lies Beneath'
Saturday night's Truth or Dare Banquet will be a huge highlight of the festival. Imagine a feast of the audio, visual and theatric together with the most incredible menu we have ever created and including our now legendary PUDDING PROCESSION. £65.
As we gear up for our Sundaze Sunshine DJ set with superstar DJ Paulette (ex Pikes, The Hacienda) we will be presenting a menu to celebrate the food of the Balearic Islands. Grab yourself a pitcher of Cava Sangria and let James Knight and Rebecca Otero, natives of the white isle on loan to the UK for the festival, introduce you to the food and transport you to the glamour and the glitz of the island. Bring your sunglasses. Sunday from 12:30pm. £20.
