The vintage Rice horsebox has been fitted out with an authentic Italian pizza oven where a chef freshly cooks pizzas to order using ingredients sourced from the farm shop and local producers. The menu has a choice of six thin-crust pizzas including Margherita, Diavola and Parma Ham.
Customers can also enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or tea with their pizza followed by ice cream, with refreshments including red, white and rosé wines, lager, lemonades, fruit juices and other cold drinks.
Edward Pearce, director of Pearce’s Farmshop and Café said, “This is a very exciting step for Pearce’s and we’re really proud to be offering a fun and complementary eating option to the Café. We’ve had a fantastic reception so far with customers enjoying the good food from this trendy venue, as well as the opportunity to eat out sitting at benches overlooking our glorious views - if it’s too hot or the weather is not so good, a covered area has been created to offer protection.
“With our pick your own strawberries now open, we look forward to family and friends stopping by for a bite to eat. If time is short though, we’re also offering a takeaway service too.”
