Culinary Outdoor Team Building

Get your team out and about to enjoy the warmer days and lighter nights, whether it’s enjoying a team BBQ with a difference or getting competitive in a Restaurant Challenge. Our team days provide an opportunity to reward teams, as well as acting as a boost to morale and motivation. Getting out of the office and into the fresh air gives everyone a mini-break before the summer holidays. Here’s some options you could choose or contact us to discuss your ideas.

Team BBQ

BBQ & Beer Tasting

Celebrate your team and their successes this summer. A relaxing and informative half day or evening event, your team will learn tips and tricks from one of our expert chefs on how to extend their BBQ skills, alongside a tasting of local beers.  Our chef will share the principles behind BBQ cooking, using our full range of Weber BBQs.

A typical feast could include:

Tomato and mozzarella pizza

Beer can chicken

Chargrilled broccoli with chilli and garlic

Smoked pork loin with BBQ rub and crackling

Barbecued chocolate fondants

The menu on the day can easily be adapted to suit allergies or dietary requirements.

Team BBQ
sausages and cider

Sausage & Cider 

Learn a new skill as a team, and then enjoy the fruits of your labours alongside a tasting of local ciders. Perfect for a team to get away from the office and do something a little different, as well as enjoy some time together.

Your team can make different flavours of sausages together, definitely a fun experience. We promise there will be plenty of laughter. They’ll also get to take some of the sausages home to enjoy with their family and friends.

On a typical event, teams will make three different types of sausage. We’ll then organise the BBQ, and they’ll enjoy the sausages served alongside an array of different salads. We accompany the BBQ with a tasting of three different local ciders.
