January dates at Apley

Robert Burns, Scottish poet, 1759–1796

Robert Burns, Scottish poet, 1759–1796

Very rarely, I take my pc & sit in Daylesford’s café & work there for a couple of hours. It’s great to get out & about & work in a new environment. Lots of others tap away on their laptops alongside me & I find I don’t get so distracted by phone calls.

So today, whilst I sit here, I must tell you 4 special time-sensitive things before January disappears: Firstly, the cheese of this week is a cheddar called Westcombe – more below. Secondly, please vote for us before midnight this Sunday by clicking HERE ! Thirdly, enjoy a very Scottish lunch celebrating the poet Robbie Burns is coming up on Sunday 25 January. Lastly, don’t miss free tasters on Sat 31 Jan in the Farm Shop.

2015-01-13, Westcombe Cheddar

Westcombe Cheddar

If you’re a cheese lover & follow Apley’s weekly cheese choices, have a taste of Westcombe Cheddar. It’s made in Somerset from unpasturised cow’s milk. It’s a hand-crafted traditional cheddar made in much the same way as it was when Mrs Brickell began making it over 100 years ago. It has a “deep, complex flavour with a mellow, lactic tang & long notes suggesting citrus, hazelnut & caramel. It’s structured & firm, with a smooth breakdown so its flavours linger”.

Vote for us before midnight on Sunday, 18 January !

The Creamery Café’s breakfast dish registered for the Farmhouse Breakfast Week is Apley eggs – Two rashers of Apley Butcher’s home cured bacon & two poached eggs on a toasted tea cake finished with a cheddar cheese & chive sauce. £5.50, includes a cup of tea or a filtered coffee. Breakfast is served 9.30-11.30 (Mon-Sat) & 10-11.30am (Sun). Booking is recommended at weekends. Just call 01952 730 345, option 2 for the Café.

Sunday 25 Jan Burns Night

With a Scottish head chef & Burn’s Night landing on a Sunday this year, Martin will be serving haggis, neeps & tatties for Sunday lunch on Sunday 25 January. Don’t miss your chance for a taste of something a bit different !

Sat 31 Jan taster day
