    I was dissappointed in the 'picnic' basket. Expected more ea fruit. Some sauces for food that was dry. More vegetables. Some chocolets as well? Was our wedding anniversary

    We thoroughly enjoyed our picnic - delicious food, great rose wine and lots of extras were thought of e.g. cushions etc. Being able to enjoy it by the river in a stunning and peaceful setting was wonderful!

    We were very disappointed with the whole experience, we had a group of 5 + 4 children from the USA with 3 of us. We arrived at 12:30 as arranged, were kept waiting outside until 1pm while the picnic baskets were still being packed. A member of the party bought a bottle of wine to enjoy while we waited, no one was able to bring us glasses to use. The picnic lunch was mediocre with unsatisfactory wooden eating utensils (proper non plastic cutlery would have been preferred), lightweight very small paper plates which blew about in the wind, and we were not offered any help to carry the baskets and bucket of wine, cool drinks and bottled water the substantial distance to the riverside picnic. We did not experience this as a value for money experience. So unfortunately - not the happy experience we had all so looked forward to

    Hello, I don’t normally ‘complain’, but I regularly have picnics at various wine farms and I just don’t understand the food which was provided in the basket. There was a distinct lack of congruency in terms of the foods relating to each other? For instance what was supposed to be put onto the brioche? And the chickpea salad was awful with no dressing-literally just chickpeas and leaves. The cold meatballs were also under seasoned and lacking in taste. The only enjoyable parts were the caramel popcorn, and the pesto. I urge you to reconsider the ‘menu’ as I believe the location is magical but the contents of the basket incredibly underwhelming. Thanks!
