Farmers Fayre has unveiled their new shop and restaurant, which is three times bigger than their previous outlet, so I went over to Stoneleigh Park to see what was in store for foodies.
The family-run enterprise is based on Stoneleigh Park, a hub for agricultural businesses, just a short drive from Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Coventry. The modern, environmentally-friendly building has been designed to complement its rural setting, with a variety of natural products being used in the construction – including burnt larch cladding.
The two storey building is definitely striking and I think that it has a Scandanavian feel to it, with light grey and white colour scheme.
Inside you’ll find a cornucopia (I love that word so don’t use it lightly) of food and drink to enjoy on the premises and takeaway.
Everywhere you look are attractive display stands of store cupboard essentials alongside treats.
Farmers Fayre specialises in goods from local producers, like Mudwalls Farm in Alcester.
The 50 seater restaurant is open seven days a week, where you can cosy up to the wood burning fire or take over a bench bathed in sunlight.
Ideal for workers on site and visitors are the lunches of freshly made rolls, salads, soup, savoury and sweet pastries plus a Sunday roast carvery.
The wall clock features old cattle numbers found in a shed onsite.
The stunning light fitting is from JamJar Lights in Birmingham.
A soapstone bowl by Millington and Hope is just one of the home design ideas to inspire you.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas with gift ideas and decorations aplenty.
A Christmas hampers wrapping station will be opening soon.
Farmers Fayre is run by husband and wife team Nicola and Michael Reece. Nicola says: “Our main criteria is stocking local produce that is high-quality and value for money. We work with over 40 small, local suppliers predominantly in Warwickshire but also in the neighbouring shire counties.”
Whether you are looking for a jar of your favourite pickle or meal inspiration there is certainly a lot to tempt you with in the new
Farmer Fayre shop and restaurant.
