Chelsea Fringe comes to Monmouth
Sat 21 May, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm BST
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until Sun 12 June, 2016
Botanically inspired food, drink, art and relax in our garden
For the first time gardeners and foodies can visit the first venue in the area to be involved with Chelsea Fringe – a celebration of horticulture.
Here at Green & Jenks, we make on site freshly made gelato, sorbet and frozen yogurts using fresh local fruit wherever possible. Our award winning business reopened in 2015, having closed in 1958 with the retirement of the third generation of the family dairy business founded in 1888 by Frederick Green. The family is now run by three generations of the female line ranging from the ages of 83 to 25. The current Managing Director, Gilly Pollock has a horticulture business, the British Plant Nursery Guide, promoting british nurseries. She has also exhibited and received awards at Chelsea Flower Show so she is passionate about plants and sharing their beauty and feel good factor they bring. Gardening is good for you!
Our popular cafe will be serving a range of freshly made foods and drinks with botanical influences. In addition, we will be running a series of talks by local ladies who have a horticultural story to share. We will also have an exhibition of botanical art in our Georgian Gallery.
For a bit of luxury, book one of our high quality Afternoon Teas with floral touches such as lavender shortbread enjoyed with a glass of Prosecco with an elderflower floater or a locally made herbal alternative to alcohol called Azizi – it tastes amazing.
Our sunny courtyard garden will be open throughout offering a quite sanctuary, which will be transformed into a garden delight, where we not only grow colourful flowers but our own herbs and salads for you to eat in our cafe and restaurant.
We will accept bookings for Private Dining experiences and can cater for up to 50 inside and another 20 in the garden.
