Farmyard Confidential
Issue 10 - May 2018
Why we're taking on The Dial House ...
For those of you that haven't heard, (where have you been?), we are beyond excited to announce that we have acquired The Dial House in Reepham from the Byford's group. We have always had ambitions to grow beyond St Benedict's Street from day 1. When Iain Wilson approached us about taking on The Dial House it was too good an opportunity to turn down and now, we've finally got the keys!

The Dial house is the jewel in the crown of Reepham's untouched Georgian market place. Re-opened after a full renovation in 2015 with 8 beautifully designed rooms and the unique proposition that "everything is for sale". From the antique furniture to the eclectic objects on show in each room it is a place that we know and love. We will be giving Farmyard's trademark, produce driven style of cooking a slightly grander feel to match the elegant surroundings and re-invigorating the wine list to focus on maximum bang for your buck.

If you would like to join us on our new adventure at The Dial House, please subscribe to our new "Dial House Lifestyle" newsletter here and keep up to date with or "Cellar Room Supper Club", "Peak of the Season Dinners", antiques news and events. We very much look forward to welcoming you there too.

Wine prize draw
Every month, our wine supplier Rob Harrison from CH Wine Merchants gives away a wine - especially for Farmyard Confidential readers - and you're automatically put in the 'hat' to win it. This time he has chosen Famille Hugel's, "Gentil", France.

Hugel's "Gentil" is Famille Hugel's only blended wine, being made up of 6 grapes - Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Sylvaner. All of the grapes of the Alsace in one bottle! This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from the noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". "Gentil" has pure, fresh aromas and is very fruit driven and floral. On the palate, this wine is dry with a lively youthful fresh character, with pleasant scented finish. Easy drinking by itself, or a joy to pair with food.

Congratulations Katie Howes on winning a bottle of Domaine Gayda's, En Passant.
