Searcys has been appointed as the official caterer at Weston Park in Shropshire.
Surrounded by 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland, Weston Park is a stately home, events venue, visitor attraction and luxury getaway. At certain times of the year guests are invited to share the estate as part of events that take place in and around the parkland.
Weston Park’s new and seasonal culinary offering will include the launch of The Granary Brasserie and Bakery at Weston Park. The Granary Grill, located in the restored 1767 Great Barn on the estate, will be refreshed with a new name, look and a market-style brasserie menu. The bakery will feature a simple and seasonal menu of British fare. Highlights include Searcys’ coffees and a range of freshly baked bread, homemade sandwiches and cakes. The team will create a Weston bakery signature, which will join John Searcy’s original Bakewell Tart.
Additionally, Searcys will create bespoke hampers and chef’s packages for the holiday cottages across the estate, as well as developing food and drink menus for private and corporate markets. This offering will include away days, weekend stays, supper clubs, and afternoon tea.
Matt Thomas, MD of Searcys, says: “We are honoured to be invited to become part of the Weston Park estate. This is an incredible opportunity to partner with a landmark British location that shares our commitment to provenance and sustainability. We are looking forward to providing the highest level of service in these wonderful surroundings, to help create memorable experiences together for our customers.”
Colin Sweeney, CEO of the Weston Park Foundation, says: “I am very much looking forward to working with the team at Searcys. We have a shared heritage, passion and vision in delivering exceptional food and service to our broad customer base whether it be a celebration in the House or Sunday Lunch in The Granary.”
