Parcel Yard’s local feast

September 18, 2014

Now this I like the sound of.  Leicester’s Parcel Yard is showing signs of moving beyond it’s initial offering of great craft beers and not bad pub grub towards something more ambitious. In early October is staging a “seasonal local feast” with appetising food and drink from within 30 miles.

At £25 a head for an aperitif and  three courses with matching drinks and this sounds a proper deal, at least if the chefs are up to it. Things kick off with a Two Birds gin and tonic, distilled in Market Harborough. First course is a salad of partridge, blackberries and Colston Bassett stilton, with a glass of Fynbury cider from Rutland, followed by a Cottingham venison stew with a glass of Steamin’ Billy’s own 1485 ale, and then Hedegrow crumble with a glass of Brewster’s APA, brewed in Grantham by CAMRA favourite Sarah Barton.

The event runs on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th October. For full details book through the website or call the pub on 0116 261 9301.

    Looks great! I’ve just booked us in, and they were very happy to arrange a veggie option for me 🙂

  2. I live right near the parcel yard but have yet to go in, I have said a few times that I must go in but have never found the time. My best friend is coming to visit in October so I shall take him.
