Foraging and cheese courses for TV show eatery

FORAGING and cheese courses will soon be on offer at a quaint restaurant nestled in Wrington - which is also set to appear on TV this year.

The Ethicurean at Barley Wood Walled Garden, which is featured in an up and coming Channel 4 food show, was taken over by a group of enterprising, young and passionate Bristol foodies towards the end of last year and the owners have grand plans for the venture in the next few months.

The restaurant, housed in what was originally probably an old potting shed, is surrounded by a walled garden dating back to the 1900s, vegetable patches, a cider barn and orchards.

The team which kick-started the Ethicurean, whose ages range between 23-32, include Jack Bevan, brothers Iain and Matthew Pennington and Paula Zarate.

Chef Jack, aged 24, said the Long Lane venue sources only seasonal, ethical and local produce and this year they plan to offer cheese tasting courses, washed down with wine, foraging courses and other foodie events.

Apple juice is made on site and a selection of vegetables are grown in the gardens in a bid to keep the food mileage low.

Although it is only open in the day at the moment there are future plans for evening openings.
