Epic foodie line-up revealed with top chefs appearing at Garden Party

Designed for these unusual times, Pub in the Park’s drive in Garden Party is an innovative way of enjoying amazing food, a great line-up of live music and all from the safety of your own private enclosure! Tom Kerridge and his top foodie-friends Atul Kochhar and Paul Ainsworth, will be providing Michelin quality food in a comfortable and socially distanced format.

Pub in the Park’s drive in Garden Party invites visitors to simply park up, pop out and party with a car-full of friends and family, whilst enjoying lush food and top music in their very own socially distanced garden! The unmissable offering consists of a £30  exclusively designed three course chef’s special menu from each chef, and an extra treat too. As well as offering smaller individual dishes from £6, with Kerridges Bar & Grill serving up Salt baked Cornish new potatoes & summer truffle with aged parmesan sauce, Paul Ainsworth’s iconic Cornish pasty from The Mariners  and Kochhar’s classic  Chicken Tikka Kathi Roll.

Each private garden has been designed for up to 10 people to kick back, relax and enjoy the festival vibes safely whilst enjoying banging food, from Kerridge, Kochhar and Ainsworth. It’s super simple, food can be pre-ordered ahead of the event and then delivered directly to you on the day.
