There has been a change at the Story Museum’s café. After 18 months of being the chef there, the lovely Sophie Grigson has moved on to the Isis Farmhouse and very much enjoying the new opportunity. The museum café is now run by local chef Lubo Pavelka who until recently was running the Barefoot Books café in Summertown. Lubo’s new seasonal menu has been very well received by Museum visitors and casual visitors.

Oxford-based John Cavers and his sister Ashley, from Combe, near Witney, came up with the idea for Wonky Fruit after becoming frustrated with the level of food waste in the UK, which sees about 40% of perfectly edible fresh fruit and veg never even reach the shop shelf. Along with professional caterer and Combe neighbour, Laura Snook, they have created a range of chutneys, relishes and jams that use unwanted fruit and veg that might otherwise fall out of the food chain.

COOK supports the Friends of the Earth Meat Free May campaign with launch of new veggie dishes by launching three new meat-free dishes and offering a 15% discount on a selection of its vegetarian range for Meat Free May (until 31st ) at its Summertown stores and franchises around the country.

Kristie Davies COOK Oxford owner says, ‘We’ve seen many of our customers cutting down on meat so it’s great to now have some more options available. The chilli con veggie has been the most popular new dish so far accompanied by Veggie Cottage Pie and Satay Vegetables.

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill in Jericho has unveiled its biggest menu change in its 25-year history in a bid to make top quality seafood and shellfish more accessible to everyone.

‘Mussel Madness’ on Tuesdays offers unlimited mussels and a drink for £15, with a choice of nine different flavours of mussels including Thai red curry, mussel mac ‘n’ cheese and korma mussels. On ‘Fish and Fizz’ Fridays, guests can grab a voucher from the Loch Fyne Facebook page and get fish and chips for two and a bottle of Prosecco for £25.

The Fishes has erected its Tipi and made some fantastic new additions all ready for the summer – mainly a brand new Peroni Rocket bar - a fully fitted airstream bar with Peroni taps, speakers, lighting, fridges, and a happy bartender to pour you a perfect pint.

Another new addition is a fully fitted garden kitchen which allows Mark and his team to give a great experience for large groups, and very busy gardens alike!

Last but not least, are the new fire pits from Cornwall, and wireless Sonos speaker system for the Tipi.
