Celebrate Summer with Luxury Picnics & Tapas Platters

Celebrate Summer with Luxury Picnics & Tapas Platters

Exploring the World of Tapas and Picnics!

Here in the Black Mountains the minute the sun shines we are ready to pull out the garden furniture and picnic blankets and embrace the essence of Mediterranean living.  Nothing says summer quite like tapas and sharing platters enjoyed alfresco, so here are some suggestions on how to elevate picnic treats.

Salami and Chorizo Charcuterie Platters


Our range of artisanal Charcuterie offers a symphony of flavour to enhance any tapas platter or picnic. Pair Air-dried Meats and Salami with vibrant Olives Et Al Marinated Olives, brimming with the essence of Mediterranean sunshine.  Make a delicious dipping sauce with Red Chilli Harissa or Black Olive Tapenade mixed with cream fraiche or Greek yoghurt and serve a pot of Tomato & Bean Houmous on the side.  Go a step further by including a delicious Welsh Cheese Board – Our Smoked Paprika Cheddar pairs particularly well with delicious Green Sicilian Olives.


Pate and Goats Cheese


Prefer something more smokey? Ready-to-eat and a customer favourite, our award-winning Smoked Chicken Breast is truly summery, sliced and served with Spiced Citrus Jelly and creamy Welsh Goat Cheese for a tasty ‘picky bit’.

And let’s not forget about Welsh tapas. Try making laverbread croquettes, infused with the salty tang of seaweed and coated in crispy breadcrumbs. Or perhaps a hearty Welsh rarebit made on freshly baked freshly baked Sourdough Bread toast with melted Smoked Cheddar and a Smoked Back Bacon topping?

Of course, no Welsh picnic is complete without a nod to tradition – Why not include slices of Cooked and Glazed Farmhouse Ham with Apple Cider Jelly or Chutney to your informal feast?

Our Smoked Fish Pâtés are a perfect picnic partner, they marry the luxury of oak smoking with the artistry seasoning. Perfect on a slice of Sourdough, loaded onto an artisan Cracker, or spooned into our crisp Pastry Cases.  For something more meaty, try these tasty Pâtés and Rillettes, handmade in Cornwall.

There is nothing nicer than sipping our local Welsh Cider and enjoying friends. Take a look at our Drinks Cellar for a bottle of something special to complement your outdoor feast.
