25 years celebration Sagra - we are postponing this event until further notice.
Bat and Bottle's first 25 years are up!
Please join us in celebrating with a Sagra-style informal dinner to be held in The Great Hall at Oakham Castle.
on Friday March 27th 2020 at 7.30pm - 10.15pm
We will be in winebar-mode and serving you alongside us will be some very special friends ... who just happen to also be local Rutland producers of excellence.
Apart from our usual dynamic and convivial company (!?!), and tokens towards wine at the bar, with your ticket you will also enjoy:
A mixed platter of Rutland's own Charcuterie Crafted and presented by the Hare & Hog Charcuterie Deli and Cafe Italian's eat your hearts out, this is charcuterie at its very best (if its good enough for Prince Charles ...) http://www.thehareandhog.co.uk
A rich and velvety Tuscan Beef and Bean Stew Lovingly prepared by June Titterton-Fox of June's Farm Using her favourite Tuscan recipe and of course her own locally-reared beef. Sorry about the cute picture - bred for dinner. https://junesfarm.co.uk
A choice of both a pudding jar and a dessert slice Think Italian dolci and add a twist of Lotus Bakery excellence by Emma Finden-Crofts of the Lotus Bakery (NB Lotus / n. (in Greek mythology) a fruit or flower associated with purity, that induces a dreamy languor and state of peaceful apathy in those who eat it) http://www.lotusbakery.co.uk
... and tokens towards wines chosen by Emma and Ben Robson of Bat and Bottle, Specialist importers of italian wine: Our wine bar will provide you with as much variation as we can pack into a pop up bar! We will be offering suggestions and tempting you with tastings, probably joining in a little too much - and feeling very celebratory!
In addition to your meal, if you would like further helpings,or to take products away with you, we will all haveall that is possible, available to buy on the evening.
We truly hope you will come along and join us in celebrating. Please spread the word... Thank you
