Specials for Pea Green Cafe and Supper Solutions

Writing this on Monday I’m bathed in warm sunshine looking at a beautiful riverside setting. When I woke this morning I was looking at an inch of snow covering the garden. So, I’m making no predictions about the coming week other than:-

  • We are serving delicious food for lunch and supper  to deliver to you at home, special menu below.
  • We shall be providing an outside table service for our guests, be it in sunshine or snow!

Yes, finally after what has been a long haul through the winter for all of us we shall be pleased to open up again our outside tables. If you would like to try us for a meal PLEASE ring first to make a reservation, as spaces are limited and will be subject to availability. As you can see below we have re erected our outside shelter, and today it makes a lovely sunshade, It will keep the rain off too, not sure about the snow if that starts again, but you can always ring us first for a weather report!

So our number is 07983 941856, to arrange a home delivery OR to reserve a table. You can order a delivery at any time, days in advance if you wish. The latest time to order same day delivery of lunch is 11AM and supper 3PM. However sometimes we are full by the cut off point so the earlier you let us know the better. The phone is available 8.30AM to 7.30PM.



Pea Green Cafe’s Supper Solutions Specials, Easter Weekend

Good Morning,
So Easter is nearly upon us again. We shall be open as usual during the course of the weekend, on Good Friday lunch & supper delivery, closed on Monday. Our menu of delicious specials is below, I’m really looking forward to trying that soup!

As I’m writing this we have a beautiful sunny morning here by the river, spring is really on now. Lovely to have some brighter weather now people are allowed to leave their houses and socialise with others in outdoor spaces. Today is the 158th anniversary of Vincent Van Gogh’s birth, I can’t pretend I’ve got anything to add to the volumes of writings about him so instead I’m sharing the image below. Was tempted to put the well known sunflowers in a vase but I thought the almond blossom was more seasonal for today.

For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back



Pea Green Cafe’s Supper Solutions Specials and 1st Film Showing

Good Morning,
We have a distinctly oriental twist to our specials today. As ever our own recipes used to serve food that is instantly familiar yet individually distinctive. See below for details on the special menu. As it is a chilly start to this March morning, I strongly suggest you order a serving of our guest soup to warm you up and get your meal started.

Back in 1895 on 22nd March was the date that there was a first screening of a film of moving images. The Lumiere brothers who were working with their father producing photographic plates pioneered the technique of making perforations in film to allow the film to advance through the camera and projector. They also developed a machine that could record, develop and project film, and patented it in February. The film was shown to an invited audience, with the first public screening  for a paying audience in December that year. The film (of workers leaving their factory) can be viewed here by modern standards, it’s a bit lacking in plot and special effects!

For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back

Specials from Pea Green Cafe’s Supper Solutions, and a BIG Thank You

A year ago this week, all our lives changed dramatically, pretty much overnight.  I’m sure there will be a lot of media focus on this anniversary and I’m not going to add to that clamour, I shall leave it to the professionals. You can probably imagine what a devastating effect the Government announcement, that ALL hospitality business were to close, had on us and all other businesses up and down the country. Fortunately we were able to continue with our well established delivery service, so have probably fared better than many. 

BUT there is one, and only one, way that we have survived this far, and that’s thanks to you, our customers.
So Nick, Deborah and myself would like to take this moment to offer a sincere and heartfelt massive THANK YOU to all of you who have supported us through this troubling time. We wouldn’t be here now without you, and we really are very grateful for your continued custom and support. We’re by no means out of the woods yet, (but to mix my metaphors) there is light at the end of the tunnel! Maybe 4 weeks from now, if things progress as previously suggested by HM Govt., I will be writing to you again to let you know that our riverside garden is open again and we can welcome you back for a meal here! Fingers crossed.

See below for this week’s special menu available in addition to our main menu. For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back

Pea Green Cafe Supper Solution Specials and the Last Invasion of Britain

Hello,Here at Pea Green Supper solutions we continue to deliver lunches and suppers for at least the next 7 weeks while the hospitality industry has to keep its doors closed! Hopefully we shall be able to open our garden area after that and look forward to welcoming you back for lunches at our beautiful riverside setting. In the meantime see the menu below for our delicious and unique freshly cooked specials.

Some 224 years ago on 23rd February 1797 was the last attempted invasion of Britain. Some 1400 troops from the French 1st republic set sail for mainland Britain and Ireland. This resulted in the Battle of Fishguard which seems to have been pretty brief. Eventually most of the invading force were returned to France as part of a prisoner exchange. The most celebrated British defender of this failed invasion is Jemima Nicholas who armed with a pitchfork apparently rounded up a group of the invading force and held them prisoner in a church over night! Read more about her here

For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back


Pea Green Cafe Supper Solutions, and a Fifty Year Anniversary.

Hello. Listed below is our deliciously tasty “specials”menu. As the whole hospitality industry remains closed down we are offering these as a home or work delivery or take away. To see the full range of our menu please visit this page of our website, or alternatively give us a call on 07983 941856 to discuss what you would like us to bring you.

I expect many of you remember the change from “old” money of pounds shillings and pence to decimal currency which happened 50 years ago on February 15th. Coincidentally 512 years earlier, according to Money Week:
“The earliest modern British cheque that we know of was made payable to Mr Delboe for the grand sum of £400, or roughly £76,000 in today’s money. It was dated “16th of February 1659″ by merchant Nicholas Vanacker, to be drawn on City bankers Messrs Morris and Clayton”
Apparently it still exists and is on display in Westminster Abbey. With cheques having almost disappeared with current digital trends in financial transactions, I wonder how much longer cash is going to be around?

For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back

This Week’s Specials & Last Week’s Close Shave

To tickle your tastebuds this week we have a couple of delicious specials listed on the menu below. For just £9.95 we can deliver you a freshly cooked 2 course meal at lunch or supper time.

Last week we had a very narrow escape as a result of the most recent wintry storm. Thursday morning saw the river level rising to over 4 metres, which is too high for comfort! Some pictures below just to emphasise the point.

New Year Greetings

Hello,

Firstly a Happy New Year to all, wishing us all a better one than 2020 was!

Our opening times are now back to normal I.E. Tuesday through Saturday Lunch and evening. Obviously due to most recent Government announcement regarding covid19 restrictions we are sadly unable to open and welcome you to the cafe. However, for a sneek peak of the cafe you can watch a video by clicking here We continue with home/work delivery of our unique and freshly cooked foods.

To start the new year we have a delicious selection of specials detailed on the menu below.

Twelfth night is upon us (or was it yesterday?) traditionally the time to remove the Christmas decorations, although this tradition is relatively new, being only a couple of hundred years old. Before that it was common for people to keep them in place until February 2nd or Candlemass being the next festival in the Christian calendar. Maybe we should resurrect this idea for a one off this year to get us through the dark days of a January lockdown? Then again thinking about the rate of needle shedding already going on from the past 12 days maybe not!

For lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM. Also you can order in advance of the day you would like a delivery. The number to call is 07983 941856. If you’re connected to the answer phone when you call please leave a message and we WILL call you back

Pea Green Cafe Specials and Christmas Produce

To tickle your tastebuds this week we have a couple of delicious specials listed on the menu below. For just £9.95 we can deliver you a freshly cooked 2 course meal at lunch or supper time.

As its Christmas in a little over 2 weeks we are now taking orders for a selection of our own made seasonal foods. Christmas cakes are finished ready to serve with classic royal icing and handmade marzipan being added last week. Mincemeat is suitably steeped in all its lovely juices, and individual puddings are ready for delivery. I’ve added a list below of our full range, though I could drop off a paper copy to anyone who wants one upon request

As well as the special foods for the time of year we have a number of store cupboard essentials available to make home cooking a little simpler for the days we are closed. We won’t be open Christmas eve night or for the following five days Click here for link to opening hours. So why not order some cottage pie base mix or a portion of bechamel or tomato sauce to help make your home cooking a bit easier.

Pea Green Cafe and Supper Solutions Specials, and Traditional Christmas Food

This week’s specials on the menu below. A real winter warmer for the darker, shorter days of late autumn. Let us bring you some warmth and deliciousness to your home for lunch or supper this week. Phone or text 07983 941 856 or email info@peagreencafe.com to order. Open from Tuesday through Saturday, order lunch by 11AM or supper by 3PM for same day delivery. If you want something to look forward to during lockdown2 you are very welcome to order days in advance. This also avoids dissapointment as we do fill up at peak times, and occasionally have to turn orders down!

I notice from the calendar that it is Christmas Day 6 weeks on Friday. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that our seasonal foods are all under way, steeping and maturing ready for Christmas. There will be more details next week but just to let you know we are planning to offer all our products in small quantities. With the uncertainty surrounding large gatherings I expect there will be many people who are reluctant to buy large family amounts, but who would still like a taste of tradition. we will offer: Mincemeat by weight so if it’s a few hundred grammes you would like to make some mince pies rather than a large jar then that’s available. Individual Christmas Puddings, the smallest I usually see in the shops feed about 8 people! Christmas cake by the slice, so if it’s just for a few people you can buy without any wastage. We will also have a few other store cupboard items to make your catering at home over the festive period less time consuming.
