Feasting, Beer & Wine Tastings

Faire admission is not included in the ticket price for the following events:

Robin’s Feast

According to legend, Robin and his Merry Men would accost wealthy nobles traveling through Sherwood Forest, feast them, and then require a certain amount of largesse on their part in order to pay the feast expenses.  Our feast is a six-course meal and extravaganza of consumption, complete with music, dancing and laughter!  Don’t worry; your “largesse” is collected in advance, so you won’t be required to empty your pockets at the end of this entertaining adventure! Join Robin Hood and the merry folk of Sherwood Forest for a country banquet fit for Kings and outlaws alike!

Course the Second

Standard fare: A Merry Man’s Traditional Hasenfeffer ~ Rabbit Stew braised with woodsy field mushrooms, thick cut bacon, and garlic in a one-pot wonder that turns this favorite of Robin Hood’s friends into a dish fit for nobility from lands far and wide.

Vegetarian fare: Yeoman’s Stew ~ Hearty Seasonal Vegetable Stew prepared in an herbaceous peasant mushroom broth. Complete comfort in a bowl!

 

Course the Third

Standard fare: Feast of Prince John’s Fowl ~ A Duo of Plump Roasted Quail and Duck, directly plucked from Prince John’s own stock, glazed with privately reserved Honey Wine.  Served alongside a seasonal assortment of Ginger Enlivened Root Vegetables.

Vegetarian fare: Rakish Rogue Ratatouille ~ Our Chef’s take on a French Provincal Ratatouille, where rascally vibrant Gingered Root Vegatables are the star.

 

Course the Fourth

Standard fare: Magnificent Young Mutton a ’la Maid Marion ~ Inspired by her very own recipe cultivated in the forests of Sherwood, this Succulently Roasted Leg of Lamb is handsomely dressed with a Cherry, Rosemary and Sherry Dijon Sauce.  Accompanied by a bed Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Open Field Squash, this dish has everything you need to make merry!

Vegetarian fare: Old World Ricotta Arancini ~ From the King’s own travels this is his favorite Italian entree. Lucious Ricotta Risotto stuffed with white wine and garlic sauteed spinich. Rolled into perfectly cooked spheres of delight and dressed with our house-made pesto cream sauce, this dish is a Royal Dream!

 

Course the Final

The Queen’s Sweet Royal Treat ~ Is it not true that dinner exists only so that we can have dessert?  Enjoy Her Majesty’s favorite Field Berry Bread Pudding served with a naughty dash of Cognac and Cardamom Cream and a kiss Fresh Berries.
