On Ice For Now...
Following the latest Government announcement (Monday 23rd of March) - we'll be putting our collection service - The Mowbray at Home on ice for now. A huge and sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has placed an order or enquired today.
Sending love and strength to our community and to all of our family and friends.
Adapting, Surviving & Supporting
We're super keen to be able to be able to keep supporting our local suppliers as well as keeping our own teams in work for as long as we can AND be a useful and delicious service at this time for as long as we can and as safely as we can - so we have a plan!
We are offering a twice weekly collection service where you can order from a delicious menu and call down to The Mowbray to collect.
These are hearty Feasts that you'll heat up in the comfort of your own home, packaged in ready to cook at home in straight-to-oven trays, so there’s minimal washing up as well!
We ran a collection service for Mother's Day...This is what a couple of our customers said..
"The food was amazing, we were so grateful to you for providing the Mowbray at Home service. We particularly enjoyed the featherblade of beef, it was so tender and everything was super easy to heat up. The portions were so generous too. We’d also like to thank you for adapting the menu for dietary requirements and making the individual chocolate tart for my sister, she commented that it was delicious and we all loved the Hazelnut treacle tart. We did spend Mother’s Day at the Mowbray last year and it was on this basis that we booked up again. So we were very pleased that you came up with a plan for the day and we look forward to seeing you all again in person once these challenging times are over." Joanne Mackenzie
"Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed the takeaway Mothers day meal from you yesterday. All the food was fabulous quality and prepared SO well. The cooking instructions were excellent and all in oven ready containers as well. All I actually needed to do was to microwave steam the veg. The portions were very generous too, although, that said, there was nothing left over as it was so delicious. So please give our compliments to the chef and all involved for providing us with an excellent lunch." Linda Hawkes.
"Thank you to you and your team for what was an absolutely amazing Mother’s Day Lunch. The service was faultless and the food was excellent. The heating instructions were easy to follow and the portions were huge!! Thank you again, it was a great idea and something we will definitely recommend and that we will certainly get involved in again." Carla Rist
Wednesdays and Sundays Never Sounded So Tasty!
Our collection service is up and running on Wednesdays and Sundays.
We've got tasty family meals on our menus and perfect treats to keep spirits high. You'll also be able to order wine from us!
We'll be offering this service for as long as we can - although who knows what the next step will be in all of this - there are no certain times - and we have taken strict measures to follow a rigorous safety procedure for collections where there is no face-to-face contact with our team.
We'll recommend a bottle of wine to go with each menu - at a takeaway price - but when you place your order - we'll also send a list of other drinks that you can order from us - bottle beers, soft drinks - other wines etc...Just let us know what you'd like and we'll include it in your collection.
The Mowbray at Home - The Perks
It’s Quick & Delicious!
Our Feasts heat up quickly in straight-to-oven trays - they’ll be ready to eat in 20-30 minutes. Everything has been freshly made from scratch by our expert chefs - so you can be assured this is going to be delicious!
We’ll give you a straightforward instruction sheet on how to heat things up. We’ll also include the menu - which highlights allergen information as well.
Minimal Washing Up!
Please consider the environment by popping your foil trays through the dishwasher before recycling, or reusing! Our disposable boxes are fully compostable.
Economical & Practical
Our Feasts have been designed to be perfect for families or for smaller households to enjoy. They are plentiful and maybe can stretch into the next day - you can split your dinner into smaller meals before reheating. We’re keen that this is economical as well as practical!
To respect the excellent advice of social distancing - we’ll either arrange a time slot for you to pick your collection up or there will be a procedure in place for one-in-one-out for busier times. Boxes will be left for collection in front of the glass doors at The Mowbray - so there will be no direct face-to-face contact.
We will arrange pre-payment online/over the phone.
