Holiday Plans & Specials

It is now less than 13 weeks to Christmas, and given the current situation regarding people being allowed to group and mix together you have to wonder quite what that holiday season will be like this year. With the official advice on how to go about our daily lives seeming to change day by day I certainly don’t feel confident to make any predictions!

I was thinking about this holidays today because we’re closing the cafe and Supper Solutions delivery service for one week from this Saturday. We shall be open this Saturday for lunch and supper, but then closed until Tuesday October 13th.

Equinox, Specials and Advance Notice

With the autumn equinox upon us this Tuesday it marks another turning point in the year. The weather has been so warm and sunny the last few days it would be easy to think we are still in high summer. The daylight hours dwindling and the changing colours of the leaves are a sure reminder however that it isn’t. Across the river from the cafe the horse chestnuts are beginning to drop their conkers, it looks like a cracking crop this year.

We have a tasty selection of wholesome specials for you this week, details on the menu below. In addition to our specials our regular menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday. We serve lunch in the cafe (please phone for a reservation) from 12 to 2 PM, and home or work delivery for lunch and supper.

We shall be closed from Sunday October 4th until Monday October 12th and re opening on Tuesday 13th October. During the week before that we can deliver any meals you would like to stock up in your freezer so you can enjoy our food even when we are closed

A Poulter’s Dozen

This week’s specials are Poulter’s Pie, and Pasta Provencale, details on the menu below. While looking up the origin of the word Poulter (someone who deals in poultry) I came accross a reference to a poulter’s dozen. This was a phrase first used in the 16th Century and attributed to poet George Gascoigne. He said the 1st dozen eggs sold by a poulter were 12, but if you bought a second dozen you would get 14. And also in poetry it is used to describe a metre with alternate lines of 12 and 14 syllables, known as a poulter’s measure.

In adition to our specials our regular menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday. We serve lunch in the cafe (please phone for a reservation) from 12 to 2 PM, and home delivery for lunch and supper. 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

The Missing Days of September 1752

Following an extended weekend we shall be open from Wednesday to Saturday this week. Today, the 2nd September, was the day in 1752 that the UK accepted the move from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar and consequently 11 days were “lost” . People went to bed on the 2nd September and got up on the 14th, that must have been a bit confusing for many!

You’re welcome to visit us from 10AM if you would like a coffee, tea, cake or ice cream etc. by the river do come down. If you would like to visit us for a meal we have a limited inside space available so please phone us first and make a reservation

Specials this week are two of our most popular dishes. We have a slow cooked tender brisket, and mushroom stroganoff. See menu below for more details. 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

Holiday Weekend Specials

The August bank holiday is coming next Monday. Always a full stop to summer in my mind, with the nights drawing in and autumn approaching. I know that a lot of people will use the long weekend for a trip away, but if you’re going to be araound Ludlow then here are this week’s specials on the menu below. These are available for home/work delivery or to eat in the cafe from Tuesday to Saturday. We shall then be closed for 3 days (Sun/Mon/Tues) re opening on Wednesday.

Some of you may have seen on our facebook page a visit we had last week from the local Swan Family, sunning themselves and a mid morning snooze on the riverbank outside the cafe, a copy below if you missed it. There is always something to catch the eye from the garden cafe, no two visits are the same. I haven’t seen the kingfisher recently, though with the leaves falling from the trees now, and there being less camouflage, perhaps there is a better chance of catching a glimpse!

To reserve a table in the cafe, or for lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM, 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.

Handmade crispy potato cakes 2 ways.

We have a choice of delicious potato cakes for this week’s Special. See menu below for details. Although I’ve written 2 ways in the subject line, I’ve just found 2 different names for this method of preparation, also known as “rosti” (which are swiss in origin) and “hash browns”. These however are made from scratch in our kitchen, and therefore unique to us. We have one containing ham and the other a vegetarian one. You can choose which you have to accompany the main part (one of each if you wish!)

Found this on wikipedia : “In Swiss popular cultural ethos, rösti are predominantly eaten in German-speaking regions, although they can be found easily elsewhere in the country. Rösti dishes are portrayed as a stereotypical part of the Swiss-Germanic culture, as opposed to Latin culture. The geographic border separating the French- and German-speaking parts of the country is therefore commonly referred to as the Röstigraben: literally the “rösti ditch”

To reserve a table in the cafe, or for lunchtime delivery phone before 11.00AM or supper delivery phone before 3.00PM, 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.

Barbeque Weather?

During this current hot spell of weather I’m sure plenty of people will be thinking about having a barbeque at home. The forecasts however may not look kindly on this with warnings of thunderstorms threatening to strike anywhere at any time this week! Three fine days and a thunderstorm is how some have described the British summer.

Anyway, come rain or shine barbeque flavours our specials this week at Pea Green Cafe & Supper Solutions. See menu below for details. Sorry we weren’t able to accommodate everyone who phoned on Saturday to book a meal for the evening, we were catering for large birthday party and were fully booked for the evening by lunchtime! We are very happy to take bookings in advance for home delivery if you wish to guarantee your meals, though if it’s an impulse or last minute choice we will do our best to accommodate you.

Lunchtime Specials

This week in addition to our regular menu we have on offer 2 deliciously tasty specials, all prepared cooked and served from our own kitchen. (see below for details.) Last week 2 of our customers were slightly confused by the name Supper Solutions. We have used this name since the Autumn of 2016 when we 1st launched our home delivery service. From then until late March this year we ONLY did evening deliveries. Then when all cafes restaurants pubs etc had to close we started to offer lunch deliveries as well but kept the name the same.

We continue to provide the lunchtime home delivery service and will do so for the forseeable future. Orders for a hot nutritious freshly cooked lunch can be placed days in advance, or on the day you require delivery. If you wish to order for the same day please phone us by 11.00 AM and we shall deliver between 12.30 and 1.30.

You are also welcome to join us at our riverside home on Temeside. We open at 10AM for drinks and light refreshments, please just drop in if you wish. Lunch served from 12 to 2 PM, if you intend to come for lunch please phone us beforehand to reserve a table and avoid disappointment. 07983 941 856.

We are opening at our new/old location on Temeside’s junction with Old Street. Please do come and see us, if you are making a special journey we suggest you phone us first as space is limited.

Holiday Food Memories?

Specials today listed on the menu below, both are freshly prepared from scratch to our own tried and trusted recipies. Oh, and they taste great! Picture from cafe service we don’t deliver on plates. Yet…

World Famous Spicy Meatballs came about as a name as we had a previous restaurant thet had a lot of overseas visitors. We used to joke about them going home and their abiding memory being the meatballs they ate in Ludlow!! Full menu can be viewed here

What dishes have you fond memories of that you have eaten while on holiday? For me an introduction to goulash during a childhhod holiday to (the then) Yugoslavia was a revelation that has never been bettered.

Meeting Up?

Seems as though the weather doesn’t really seem to know which season we are in just recently. Last week we prepared a pic-nic lunch for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary, unfortunately for them the day turned out to be wetter, greyer and colder than any of the previous 6 weeks I think! If you are planning a social celebration or business meeting in the near future and require catering maybe we can help? We can’t guarantee you the weather but, we can bring you some nice food.

Pea Green Coronavirus Response No 2

Friar’s Walk in Spring Sunshine

What a strange week it has been. The town so quiet, the streets deserted, unless you were in one of the enormous, serpentine queues for food or medicine. All of us standing the regulation six feet apart, all anxious, all wondering if the shop would have run out of stock before we reach its doors.

The lane to the café has been sunk into a dreamy sleep. With bees loud in the hedges and blue and white for-get-me-nots speckling the banks. No sound of children playing, no traffic at either end. The one woman I pass backing into the wall with her dog to let me pass. We exchange greetings and commiserations from a safe distance, relieved to be polite and friendly in what can appear a friendless time.

We have used the cool and silent streets of early evening to begin posting our new Supper Solutions Menus through doors, which is beginning to have results. The only living beings in Mill Street were a pair of mallards who politely got out of the way and waddled off towards the Art Gallery. Obviously cultured ducks.

We are all learning to adapt to a new way of living, reaching out through different means for the important, necessary things we need. Hopefully our new delivery slots will go a little way to helping customers plan their weekly needs.

Coronavirus Pea Green’s 1st Blog Response

The word medieval keeps coming to mind. The hush of the streets, the quietness of town. The few people abroad hurry purposefully to their pre set destination. Greetings are muted in the main, a grimace of a smile, an averted gaze. We are all at sea with the new etiquette required in these pestilence times.

The café is silent, cleaned, light, airy and empty of life. The new photo canvases, the updated magazines remain unseen. The planned for events, all cancelled. No more Good Greif Café, Speed Awareness Course, Ladies who do Yoga, Veterans walking club. The Dance Studio is hollow with the remembered noise of a Saturday morning session. For a while Phil the Gardner came, pruned, weeded, left.

While we are under the Coronavirus curfew, we will be focussing on serving our customers through our take away service “Supper Solutions“, a service for all those vulnerable category people who would benefit from this service. There are the over worked, stressed priority workers who at the moment just don’t have time to shop and cook, in addition to all those with special health needs who are sensibly staying home, “Supper Solutions” would really help.

All these developments coming pit pat one after the other, has as you may imagine kept us on out toes. We will be refining and expanding the services we offer to our local community with updates on menus and other take-out options via Facebook, twitter and more frequent blogs.

We will stay in contactless communication with you for as long as the crisis continues.

Refuge or Idyllic Place.

For specials this week we have local rabbit fricassee and vegetable Cajun spiced rice. Details on the menu below. I was wondering where the word Cajun came from, and as ever a quick internet search came up with the answer for me. From Lafayette tourist board:-

The word Cajun began in the 19th century Acadia. Some referred to the Acadians as, “le ‘Cadiens”, dropping the “A”. Later came the Americans who could not pronounce “Acadien” or “‘Cadien”, so the word, “Cajun” was born.

Acadia was a colony of New France in northeastern North America, the word itself coming from the Greek “Arcadia” meaning Refuge or Idyllic Place. You’re welcome to join us in our own Idyllic Place on the bank of the river Teme for lunch and a serving of our specials or one of our other delicious unique wholesome dishes for lunch. Please phone first to reserve a table. Alternatively we can bring it to your home or work.

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

Home Delivery or Lunch Out?
