We’re making a few changes to the Bistro.
This month we’re introducing a new soft drink to quench your thirst, two members of staff and much more…
Now stocking: Ubuntu Cola
We’ve avoided serving soft drinks at the Bistro for a long time, purely because we’ve found it impossible to find a beverage that adheres to our stringent rules on sustainability and ethical responsibility, that is until we found Ubuntu Cola.
Made by the Natural Beverage Co. (the smarty-pants folks behind froo-t and FruitHit), Ubuntu Cola is a completely Fairtrade cola beverage that is created with the sub-Saharan philosophy of human kindness in mind. Not only is all Ubuntu Cola made with sugar from Fairtrade plantations, but the money from each can we sell goes towards to helping the farmers’ communities back in Malawi.
Staff: Jessie and Falstaff
We’re happy to announce that we’ve got two new starters this week. Jessie has been waiting for a job with us ever since we opened last year and we’re so glad to have them on board.
The whole team here have got to know them during the past year and have always enjoyed hearing their latest news, so we’re proud to have them finally put an apron on and join us at the Bistro. Falstaff, meanwhile, is a relative newcomer to the area. He’s a chef by trade and has already proven himself at being quite the creative – we’re looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the team!
We now offer Gluten-free toast!
It’s taken us some time but we’ve finally got our hands on a gluten-free loaf that satisfies both our stringent ethical responsibilities, as well as the allergen tests required for us to serve Gluten-Free food.
Over the last decade there have been more diagnoses of gluten-based intolerances and allergies, although we’ve always aimed to cater to as many different people as possible, due to the delicate nature of this particular allergen we’ve not been able to promise completely gluten-free food until now. Our Gluten-free toast made in a controlled environment, guaranteeing you a worry-free slice.
Evening Folks session starting next week…
It was always part of our plan to have music at our Bistro and now we’ve got the equipment (and the permission) to do so! Although we’ve been petitioned by many of our regulars to hold an open mic night, we’ve decided to hold off on that plan for a little while, in favour of focusing on a particular genre.
Folk music has been at the heart of our little Bistro for some time now, it’s the one genre of music that ties together all the people that work here, so it makes sense that we invite some of our favourite local performers to play for us. We’ll be holding a weekly Folk session every Thursday afternoon, so come on down and check it out!
