Food + Drink


Acclaimed independent food  & drink brand, Macknade, is celebrating the forthcoming launch  of its Ashford  restaurant site with a pre-launch party  on Saturday September 14th.

The event takes place  outside in the  new Elwick Place development between 12 and 7pm,  where there will be free live music, food  & drink stalls, demonstrations & tastings from Macknade’s extended  foodie family.

The food  on offer will give customers a taste of what they  can expect when  Macknade opens its new food  & drink hub later  this year at Elwick Place,  featuring pasture-fed meat cooked on a Big Green Egg and  platters of local & continental cheese from the deli bar.

Some  of the  county’s leading drinks producers will also be on hand  to celebrate alongside Macknade, including Curious  Brewing,  Simpsons Wine Estate, Duddas Tun Cider  and  Coxy’s Liqueurs.

Award-winning media brand ‘Cene will host  the  stage for the  afternoon and  are bringing with them  a line-up  of talented local artists  for guests to enjoy with a bite  to eat and  a drink in hand. There  will also be free face painting and  craft activities  for children, courtesy of Made  in Ashford.

The team from Macknade’s flagship  food  hall in Faversham, which this year celebrates its 40th birthday, will be on hand  to talk about plans  for the  new site.
