The main catering marquee will be open from the moment you arrive, and you could start your day with a generous breakfast, or choose from a wide choice of hot and cold refreshments, including Fairtrade coffee or English and speciality teas. Full breakfast’s are served from 8am. Local produce is used wherever possible, and we have some of the tastiest homemade meals you will find at any outdoor event.
Throughout the day there will be an extensive range of sandwiches available, homemade cakes and desserts. For something quick there is a full variety of chocolate confectionary, fair trade cookies, crisps, snacks and fresh fruit.
Appetising, homemade full hot meals are served at lunchtime, as well as jacket potatoes, which are served with a large selection of tasty fillings. There will also be a delicious salad bar, selection of seafoods and hot sausage rolls available. Afternoon tea and cream teas are available in the afternoon.
A wide range of soft drinks are offered, not to forget the separate bar serving beers from two local breweries – The Langton Brewery and The Grainstore Brewery. They are providing beers produced specifically for the Birdfair, as well as a selection of lager, Guinness, cider and wines.
Pop into the Hot Roast Pork stand near the Optics marquee for a hot pork roll, a filling jacket potato, or a pint of Birdfair Bitter. Here you will also find a selection of hot and chilled drinks, Fairtrade coffee, sandwiches and snacks.
Visit the BBQ next to the main catering marquee and sample hot dogs made with local sausages from Bates Butchers or the renowned Northfield Farm beef burgers. Vegetarian sausages and burgers are also available. This is also where you will find the Stir Fry area, with a selection sumptuous stir frys and Thai stir frys on offer. For something a bit different, try a freshly made crepe, served with sweet or savoury fillings.
Full hot meals are also being served from 5.30 pm on the Friday evening, just prior to the Birdfair Celebrity Lecture.
