The Bazaar is becoming known for doing things rather differently…
We don’t have a beautiful old building – instead we have a huge warehouse filled with beautiful things.
We don’t make you walk from the town carpark and make it difficult to purchase anything that won’t fit in a carrier bag – instead we have a large private carpark behind our store and disabled parking right next to the door.
We don’t cram our store – we give you plenty of room to explore, whether on foot, in a wheelchair or with a pushchair.
We don’t stack our stock high – we display it beautifully to give you ideas about how to use pieces in your own spaces.
So… when we started chatting with our friend Michelle from Paternoster Farm and she said that she’d love to do a pop-up restaurant in the Bazaar…
of course, we loved the idea!
There were months of ironing out details and of Michelle getting all creative to come up with a suitably wonderful menu..
Then we set a date.
Now, would anyone want to come?
We really needn't have worried…
In true Pembrokeshire style bookings were slow to start but it was soon sold out!
Now, how do we turn a warehouse full of old things into a restaurant?
We put on music, turned the lights down and then it was over to Paternoster Farm.
Nibbles were laid out for arriving guests. When everyone was in their seats, service began…
What a wonderful evening!
Trestle tables, huge antique French linen cloths, hessian, antique stoneware and rosemary cut fresh from our garden set the scene.
We managed to pull together 30 vintage and antique chairs from our own stock for guests to get comfy on. (We don’t think they noticed that they all still had price tags on…)
Chatting and laughing. Exclamations when tasting. Happy guests.
We had an amazing evening and our fellow diners were full of praise.
It hasn’t taken long for us to decide, along with Michelle at Paternoster Farm that this event is worth putting on again.
We’ll let you know when!
