Product of the Month: Gazpacho

IMG_1084We’ve all got a taste for this Mediterranean vegetable gazpacho from Mercia in Southern Spain. Made by Villaolivio, this yummy soup is 100% natural and gluten free, made from tomatoes, pimento, cucumber and extra virgin olive oil, plus white wine vinegar, garlic and salt. Just shake and serve cold with some chopped cucumber, tomatoes and peppers for a delicious and refreshing light lunch or starter. Easy – and it’s low calorie too!



IMG_0741July: Spanish white Rioja

Marqués de Reinosa is a white Rioja made from Viura grapes harvested from the higher terrain in Autol. It’s a medium bodied wine with citrus notes, very fresh but also buttery. It’s great with fish, particularly oily fish and shellfish. Available by the bottle in our Food Hall, or by the glass or bottle in our Cafe, where it is July’s guest white wine. 


Evening dining

We’re open for dinner every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 5.30pm until 5th September for flip flop friendly dining straight from the beach. After 5th, we’ll still be open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.
