Last week I attended a very British BBQ at The High Field.
There was great food, plenty of prosecco sangria and, of course, rain. Luckily, The High Field have put up a spacious marquee in their beautiful garden area to keep you dry during those summer events!
Throughout the summer, The High Field will be BBQ-ing on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as long as the weather hits 20°. With a tempting menu of hanging skewers, beef ribs, chicken skewers and a whole array of sides, this would be the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon.
Oh, and the marquee is free to hire for your summer parties too.
This is a top quality BBQ set up! We watched the chef cooking up some treats and then loaded up our plates with salad ad BBQ goodness.
There's prawn and monkfish skewers, steak skewers, baked potatoes, chicken wings, beef ribs, corn on the cob and delicious slaw and salad to choose from.
The Dandy Ribs are glazed in BBQ and Bourbon sauce. Edd tried these and the meat fell off the bone perfectly.
The corn on the cob was charred to perfection. These were so good I went back for seconds!
The prawn and monkfish skewers came with generous chunks of fish- no bulking out with loads of onion!
The salads were fresh and tasty.
The chicken wings had a slight chilli kick to them but not too much to burn your mouth off. I should point out that all the glazes and sauces were homemade. They kindly gave us the BBQ sauce recipe so I shall certainly be trying that.
As if that wasn't enough, we were then presented with dessert.
A beautiful caramel cheesecake topped with popcorn- a cute touch.
Eton Mess bursting with the flavour of fresh strawberries.
And then something I've had my eye on for a while- dip your own strawberries. They had something similar for asparagus season which I'm gutted I missed so I was happy to try the strawberries.
Huge juicy strawberries, served with chocolate sauce and Chantilly cream. I was quite full and politely only had a couple of strawberries but I could have happily polished the whole lot off. There's still time to give it a go yourself.
I recommend trying out The High Field this summer. Pop down for BBQ food at the weekend, get friends together for a party in the marquee or just get some Prosecco Sangria and share some strawberries and cream, You won't regret it.
The High Field is in Edgbaston, ten minutes walk from Five Ways.
I attended a blogger event at which I had complimentary drinks and food however I was not obliged to write a review.
