A Meal at Erlestoke Prison (2018)

Once again we are presenting a

Pop-Up Restaurant at Erlestoke Prison

 (Image from a similar scheme at Brixton, London)
This intriguing event is a unique opportunity to visit Erlestoke Prison
and sample a 3 course meal prepared using ingredients grown at the Prison
 and served by Staff and Offenders who are studying there for NVQ's.

Previous year's guests have been amazed at the culinary expertise of the offenders who prepared and served the meal and they gave them a standing ovation at the end. They were able to talk to them and the prison staff were able to tell them about the training and employment opportunities that would be offered on release from prison, helping to reduce re-offending.


Warm Fig, Walnut & blue cheese Tart
Accompanied with dressed seasonal salad
Crab cakes with Sweet Chilli & ginger dipping sauce

Oven Roasted Poussin brushed with Lime Marmalade & served with Lime & Crème Fraiche Sauce accompanied with Sage & Onion Stuffing
Beef Wellington served with a wild mushroom jus lie
