Eat, drink and relax in our chilled out Piazza area
The Piazza at Rutland Food and Drink Festival is that special area where you can relax and eat, choosing from a wide range of tastes and cultures. Compliment that with a glass of wine, real ale or maybe even champagne, enjoy the live music and take in the atmosphere.
There’s plenty of seating, both outside and undercover in the marquees, and a chance to chill and soak in the atmosphere and live music, while enjoying some of the amazing food on offer; food from all over the world – or local produce from the Rutland area.
We look forward to food from around the world, for example, Istanbul with the Istanbul Grill, The Punjab with the Little Punjabi Food Company and Thailand with Somtam Street. We have plenty more worldwide street food as well as some more local with the Hungry Fox offering pie and mash, BBQ Smoking Train with steak burgers and raclette cheese, and the very local Farmer Lou from Oakham with slow roast lamb and hog roast.
To complement the food, there’s a large selection of beverages available; wine, champagne, cocktails, real ales, ciders and perries, as well as soft drinks. Enjoy the ambience of our large Real Ale tent, or try some of the many perries or wines.
And of course, enjoy the rolling programme of live music from some excellent musicians. From jazz to swing, and a number of local artists – there’s sure to be something to get your toes tapping!
We want your children to enjoy the day too, so there are a number of children’s workshops they can take part in, as well as fairground rides, the ever popular Pinxton Puppets and more.
