A week or so ago the super friendly bunch at Wayland’s Yard in Worcester invited me over to have a mooch around their Christmas market and enjoy some of their grub, obviously I couldn’t turn this down, I walk past on a weekly basis and always admire the awesome decor, people sat in the window working on their laptops and eating the best looking food, so I grabbed mum (for a girly day) hopped in the car and headed over. Oh they also have a shop dog called Kobe which made me want to visit a thousand times more…..(mad dog lady over here).
We headed straight out to the yard to nosey around all the Christmas stalls, there were some beautiful items for sale, I instantly fell in love with the jewellery and pottery, I love anything that has been handcrafted and there were over 40 crafters & business people selling their wares so naturally I was in my element. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, we got to find out a bit about the stallholders too and their process for coming up with ideas, how things are made etc so an educational afternoon too. Time passed by super quick and without realising we were starving so headed back inside for a bit of food (my favourite part).
I’ve always heard great things about Waylands Yard’s food, from friends and family to work colleagues, no one has ever had a bad word to say about it and it was certainly overdue for me to try it out. They cater for all diets which is such a winner, with everyone having different dietary requirements these days it’s essential to cater for everyone. I’m pretty easy to cater for because i’m a pig and will eat anything that’s put in front of me but I have a few friends that are vegan and vegetarian and they LOVE it here!
Anyway onto the food, (which is all locally sourced may I add) it was around midday so obviously I went for Avo Smash, one of my favourite things to eat is Avocado, I used to despise it but in my old age have fallen in love with the stuff and just want it on every meal, especially with poached eggs so already this was my dream dish for lunch. It arrived on sourdough toast (another favourite of mine), covered in mashed avocado, watercress and two beautifully golden poached eggs, they can certainly get the eggs right that’s for sure! Every mouthful was delicious. Mum had Eggs Royale which I had to sneak a bit of and it was equally tasty, so a massive thumbs up for your food guys, can’t wait to pop back in and order more.
Overall we had a lovely day, a HUGE thank you to Poppy and Sam and the lovely team at Waylands Yard, you were all super welcoming and lovely, I hope you have the most successful 2018 and be sure to see me back ordering the whole menu in the new year(!)
Happy New Year
