Christmas Opening Times
Christmas madness has officially descended on the Robineau team! Our shop is bursting with customers, some stressed, some armed with lists and others, who we all aspire to be like, calm and organised!
The heat in the kitchen has turned up quite a few degrees too as our chef’s preparation lists are getting longer every day! So it’s just a quickie today as I have little time to type!
Christmas at Robineau Patisserie
With the last autumn leaves falling and darker nights here it’s feels like we are quickly galloping towards December. It’s certainly cold, although we can’t moan in the slightest as we have had a superb summer. So does that mean we are in for a lorry load of snow? We’ll see, but I’m hoping for a good snow ball fight and a snowman on our patio!
My newsletter is much shorter today than normal as I have attached our Christmas brochure and thought you may have enough to read! I have also added our sumptuous three course Christmas Lunch menu which starts on December the 3rd and our Christmas Afternoon Tea menu which also starts on the 3rd.
Christmas chocolate bars and iced Christmas cakes are already on sale with the rest of the chocolate range coming on the last week of November.
Robineau Autumn Newsletter
Autumn is here and it does not seem two minutes since the leaves were turning their lovely russet colours last year. Comforting teas and puddings with custard have been gracing our table at home which always go down faster than healthier summery dishes!
Today I am bringing you news of the Autumn/Winter café menu which will be in place next Tuesday the 8th. Looking down my list I also need to tell you about mince pies! Many customers have already been firing the question! When are they on sale! I think you should have a little look at Austen’s Brassiere menu for October and I am going to give you a little bit of advance notice on Christmas lunches as people are already planning ahead and we have started to take bookings.
Robineau August Newsletter
Wow it’s hot, hot, hot, and if St Swithin’s was right we have another forty days of it which means there will be no rain for our BBQ night! How lovely it is to eat outside in our gardens on a night just like our European neighbours. Let’s make the most of it while it’s here.
Today I’m keeping it summery and bring you another gorgeous French dessert of the month, our August Brasserie menu and an update on Barbeque night, oh and our Pimms & Pastries promotion…
Win an Experience Day at Robineau
I hope you are enjoying the lighter nights. The weather is picking up now which puts us all in a brighter mood and gives us chance to get out and about. Fred and I have been tackling our garden or jungle would be the better word to describe it! As we were so busy last year with builders and opening the café it didn’t get much attention. However we have started to clear it out and we are determined to have some of our veggies again and looking forward to the first crop of peas and some delicious beans too.
The topic of gardening brings me nicely on to introducing a new exciting Brassiere Lunch menu in this month’s newsletter. Changing every month this menu will encompass fresh seasonal produce. To wet your appetites May’s Brassiere menu is detailed in our Café section…
More exciting news to tell you about this month are the Restaurant nights and wait for it, Events. Now what might these be? – Demonstrations or perhaps a Bread Master Class? Who knows! Keep Reading!
Lastly and most importantly it will be our 1st Anniversary of opening the Café on the 15th of May. To celebrate this special birthday we are giving away some wonderful treats hidden away inside golden milk chocolate bars! Does this remind you of a famous Children’s story by the imaginative Roal Dahl!!?? Read More in the Anniversary section…. and find out what the top prize is….
2012 Christmas Newsletter!
I hope you are all well. With the last autumn leaves falling and darker nights here I’m afraid it’s quickly galloping towards December. It’s certainly cold and especially so in our shop window, as a family of cheeky penguins have appeared! I think they actually came from the kitchen and not the South Pole but do come and bring the children along to see them. They like visitors but you can’t feed them!
My newsletter is much shorter today than normal as I have attached our Christmas brochure and thought you may have enough to read! I have also added our sumptuous Dinner menu for our Christmas Restaurant nights which are taking place on the 7th and 14th of December and details of our Christmas Afternoon tea which is running from the 1st of December through to the 22nd.
