Phew! This lovely weather is bringing the visitors in their hordes, but we're not complaining! We have lots of 'new season' cider in stock (the ones pressed and fermented over the autumn & winter, and are now ready to drink) including old favourites East Stour, Lunatickle, Double Vision and Bushels, and some brand new ones from North Downs (some made using cider apples, so 'West Country' style, though made just down the road). Plus Tasty Old Wife (as featured on James Martin's 'Great British Food Revival a few weeks ago, which was mostly filmed at Brogdale). We can hardly keep up with the demand for Kentish beers and wines, but we're doing our best!
This week's bestseller from the gift department is the leather bunny doorstop - must be propping open doors around Kent to make the most of the warm breeze - but soon to be overtaken by the wasp catchers. Gorgeous, bright coloured glass and cleverly designed to both look fab and work a treat, and a snip at 4.99 for the small ones and 6.99 for the large.
Come along on Good Friday and have a cuppa or a glass of cider while the kids make some fun Easter decorations, including bonnets and masks, in Claire's craft workshop. Or on Saturday to sample some lesser-known Kentish beers in celebration of St George's Day. Easter egg hunt on Sunday, and train rides into the orchards. There's still plenty of blossom on the trees to enjoy for that perfect Spring walk & picnic!
