The days are getting shorter, the air temperature has dropped and the leaves have changed colour which means that one of our favourite days is just around the corner, Halloween.
Halloween has become one of the UK's most eagerly anticipated days, one which is as loved by kids eager to go pumpkin picking and trick-or-treating, as it is with adults to curl up on the sofa and watch their favourite horror movies. But if you aren't into witchcraft or scary movies, fear not, October 31st is about more than just scares; there's a whole host of Halloween-themed foods and drinks for you to divulge in at our on-site Bistro.
The pumpkin takes centre stage at Halloween... did you know that the UK and USA alone sell 19,000 tons of pumpkins every Halloween season! Believed to be mainly for carving purposes, although recently due to the phenomenal versatility and amazing health benefits of this wonderful fruit, pumpkins are now forming a base for many sweet and savoury dishes.
