Don’t Tell the Bride!

So, who watches Don’t Tell the Bride on BBC 3? Come on, own up! There was an episode being filmed in and around Mevagissey on July 5th and Lobbs Farm Shop were asked to provide a stand with roasted joints of pork and beef carved up & served in lovely fresh rolls. It was butcher Phil’s turn to be on camera as he was in charge of the stand in the gardens of Silvanus, a large property overlooking Mevagissey village and harbour. The weather stayed dry and the guests were able to mingle out in the gardens. The film crew were buzzing around following the bride’s every move and reaction. Phil did a sterling job making sure everyone was catered for, the food went down very well indeed. Having a roast like this is a nice option and allows you to have a mixture of roasted meats instead of just a whole pig or lamb as a hog roast. If you’re interested, enquire at the butchery counter in Lobbs Farm Shop or give us a ring on 01726 844411. We can also provide freshly made coleslaw, waldorf, potato and cous cous salads amongst others if that took your fancy. It’s great for parties and takes the worry of catering out of your hands!
