We’re opening on Friday and Saturday evenings in December at Café @ All Saints up until Christmas. If you love it and come in large enough numbers we may look at the possibility of more permanent and regular evening opening. So if you think you’d like to have All Saints open in the evening come and try these evenings. As well as great stone-baked pizzas we’ll be offering our daily changing specials and our utterly yummy Herefordshire beefburgers and smoked salmon fishcakes.
Last month I had a great evening with the team at The Mill at Talgarth http://www.talgarthmill.com/cafe/ making pizzas for one of their ‘Flicks in the Sticks’ evenings. The pizzas were excellent and there was a great atmosphere. And it made me think that we should try something like that at All Saints. When we’ve opened previously in the evenings at All Saints we’ve taken a slightly posh and formal route: a (delicious) set 3 course dinner with table service. But when we I go out to eat that’s not usually what I’m looking for. Sometimes I’m looking for something quick and sometimes I want to linger a bit, but what I’m looking for is great food at sensible prices in a relaxed atmosphere. I think that’s what we do every day at All Saints and at Michaelhouse – and so we want to try and achieve the same level of great quality at fair prices in the evenings at All Saints.
So, for our December pizza evenings all the main courses will cost less than £10 and freshly baked pizzas on our own dough (organic flour and extra virgin olive oil) will start at £6.50. We’re calling them ‘Herefordshire pizzas’ as some of them will star great local ingredients (Tudge’s smoked ham and Charlie Westhead’s goat’s cheese) as well as delicious stuff from further afield (buffalo mozzarella and Brindisa chorizo).
We’ll have our usual straightforward but excellent choice of wines, beers and ciders but if you want to BYO then you’re very welcome and we won’t charge corkage.
The service will be like in a pub: order your food and pick up your drinks at the counter and then we’ll bring the food to your table. The dates are:
Friday/Saturday 6/7 December
Friday/Saturday 13/14 December
Friday/Saturday 20/21 December
& we’ll be baking pizzas from 5pm on each evening.
No need to book – just turn up on the night. But if you’d like a table for 6 or more then give us a call on 01432 370415.
Come and try it – and let me know what you think
