Yesterday we welcomed some important customers for a farm visit. Anxious to make them feel welcome, we also wanted to make sure they enjoyed themselves so of course we had to take them out for a lovely lunch. We decided on The Lodge at Ashford Castle, it’s not too far a drive from the farm and they’ve also been `customers of Velvet Cloud from the very start. Planning ahead I asked Chef Jonathan to book us a table in the bar, and if he could make sure Velvet Cloud was on the menu or on the specials that day, he’d be doing us a huge favour. He went over and beyond the call of duty, and put us on every course !!
Traditional Boxty Potato Velvet Cloud Labneh Pickles Vegetables Garden Leaves
The Lodge Beef Burger Rockfield Cheese, Crispy Pancetta, Watercress, Chutney
Velvet Cloud Yogurt Pannacotta
Of course, in the interest of business and research we had to try some, including dessert. See for yourself below, absolutely stunning ! So if you are looking for somewhere to treat yourself I would highly recommend the Lodge at Ashford Castle, set in the same grounds as the famous Ashford Castle, you’ll enjoy stunning views, superb Red Carnation service and as you can see unreal food.
