The Garden Kitchen | Review

Today, I went to The Garden Kitchen. The Garden Kitchen is a small, friendly eatery in a remote village in Clitheroe. For anyone in Lancashire or even the North West, UK I can't recommend this place enough to you. I was first attracted to this place after seeing a few friends on Facebook comment about wanting to book a table. When I saw the photo's I instantly knew why, the food looked delicious and not just that it's unique and quirky -  which I love.

This is a afternoon picnic for two. It's £13.95 per person or £16.95 per person if you want a glass of Champagne instead. For a treat it's definitely worth the price and you a great selection of food, that tastes just delicious. Egg and cress and Ham salad sandwiches, a juicy steak burger with garnish and crisps plus a selection of deserts (4 each) including lemon meringue tart, chocolate mousse, carrot cake and lastly a scone with strawberry jam and cream. Everything was beautifully presented with fruity deco. I love the quirkiness of the boots filled with milkshake, the mini carrot cakes in little plant pots and the chocolate mousse in garden buckets. This includes a huge pot of tea in the price too.

The Garden Kitchen doesn't just serve this beautiful afternoon picnic but also a endless list of yummy foods too, something to suit whatever you fancy. The Christmas afternoon picnic is starting soon 27th of November and that looks even more delicious then the norm.
