Food, fun and, of course, beer

Last Saturday’s Oktoberfest was a fun event – our Bavarian photo booth proved really popular, and the food and, of course, the German beer went down a treat.

Here is what we served:


Bavarian sharing platter of cold meats and smoked cheese
Obazda (a creamy cheese dish)
served with Pretzels


Bavarian Pork Roast in Beer Gravy
Pot Roast Beef in Red Wine Gravy
Bavarian Creamy Mushrooms (v)
served with braised red cabbage, Sauerkraut and mixed veg
Spätzle (Bavarian noodles), roast potatoes


Bavarian Cream
Lebkuchenherzen (ginger bread hearts)
Apple Tart
Caramalised Almonds

For those who asked for the Creamy Mushrooms recipe, you can download it here.

Book now: Octoberfest on 7 October

German food and beer are the stars of this Secret Location Dining event!  Aptly named “Oktoberfest”, it features a delicious three-course-meal and, of course, German beer to go with it.  We might even dig out some Dirndls (not so sure about Lederhosen, though…) and might play some proper Bavarian music in the background!

As usual, we meet you in Minehead at the Railway Station at 6.30pm for a 7pm departure.
The menu will be posted shortly.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
