Saturday 22nd May | £45 per person
The Dutch Barn, Owl Lodge, Lacock

We welcome you to our 1st Pop-up Feasting Night of 2021. If you have never been to the Owl Lodge or Dutch Barn, then be prepared for an adventure, celebrating Southern American food, drink & music. At this time of year the international barbecue championships are held on the banks of the Mississippi and it's called Memphis in May. Naturally the Americans recognise this event as the most prestigious barbecue contest in the world and, although smaller (and probably less international) this year, it will still be taking place and we will bring a taste of it to you.

The rustic atmosphere in the Dutch Barn at Owl Lodge, complete with firepit, lends itself to this theme and, with cooking by Vaughan’s Kitchen & live music by Andrew Hurst, the evening will be a great experience. We guarantee to bring the flavour and atmosphere of the American Deep South to you in Deepest Wiltshire - although we can't recreate the great Mississippi river! Please feel free to dress in the spirit of the evening and channel your inner cowboy/girl, if you would like to.

Arrive at Owl Lodge for 7.00pm - 7.30pm

Dinner commences 7.30pm - a three-course dinner in the Dutch barn, around the central fire pit.

Come dressed for May in the countryside!
