Coming up at Creake Abbey Cafe & Food Hall

lisaWe’ve a packed events programme lined up in the run up to Christmas here at Creake Abbey Cafe & Food Hall. On top of our monthly quiz night, jazz and steak nights we’ll be welcoming local duo Ed and Laura singing old and new favourites on the second Friday of every month. They will also be entertaining us at our Christmas party nights, on 12th and 19th December.

Our head butcher Lisa will be running a series of workshops before and after Christmas, whether you want to learn how to cure your own bacon or prepare a three bird roast, and we’ll also be hosting a cookery demonstration by Mary Kemp on Wednesday 26th November.

Here’s what The One Stop Nature Shop suggest you might spot here at Creake Abbey this season:

Look out for barn owls and little owls, red kites and merlins. Check hedgerows for bullfinches, redwing and fieldfare and of course listen out and keep and eye out for pink-footed geese.

From November to February wintering birds may include snipe, curlew, oystercatchers and the lesser redpoll.
