Having enjoyed their main menu earlier in the spring, I was invited to sample The Highfield's BBQ menu this month in their relaxing patio & garden area coupled with the opportunity of trying out their marquee facility.
Sadly our visit was plagued by rain showers however, this meant that we test out the marquee to full effect. The marquee provides an elegant shelter against inclement weather with room for about 25 people plus chairs and tables, it makes for a great ‘plan B’ if the weather isn’t BBQ friendly but you still want to be outdoors. Incidentally, it is also available for hire – as long as your party spends a minimum of £250 in total on food and/or drink, the marquee is yours!

For meat-eaters, there are a variety of meats and kebabs to choose from and for us veggies, we get a bespoke menu just for us.
|Veggie BBQ Platter|
Including: Halloumi & Vegetable Kebabs, Jacket Potato, Corn on the Cob, a filled pitta bread pocket with roast vegetables plus accompanying coleslaw and salads.
Nice, wholesome, standard bbq fare, presented on a wooden board with cute galvanized pots of sauces, makes for it to be all the more contemporary. Only thing I would say is, I would have welcomed some kind of veg packed/herb infused homemade veggie burger to complete the platter just so there would be a comparable item against the meat menu.
Modestly priced at £9.75 per person for the veggie option, this is a lovely way to enjoy the ambience of The Highfield, alfresco style and it’s a different way of dining out (literally)!

So whilst the light nights and the warm(ish) weather are still here, enjoy these last few weeks of summer at The Highfield over a bbq platter and just think – all the fun of a BBQ meal without any of the washing up or tidying away – bliss!! J~~~
