Quite often people scoff at the point of Twitter but it is thanks to Twitter and the Abergavenny Food Festival that Susie made contact with Adele Nozedar, author of, ‘The Hedgerow Handbook‘. It also turns out that Adele lives just down the road from Gliffaes. After Susie went to hear her talk at The Abergavenny Food Festival she met up with Adele and together with our head chef, Karl Cheetham they decided to do some experimenting with some ingredients foraged from all around the local area. This short video shows them at work in the kitchen and trying a few new things. Keep your eyes peeled for some interesting inclusions on our menu. Susie has already made some of Adele’s Raspberry Vodka.
We are planning an early Spring foraging day at Gliffaes with Adele on Saturday 23rd March 2013. More details to follow soon. If you would like to be kept in the loop about this event please send us an email via the ‘contact us’ page.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
