A story about Kay’s cake

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

For those of you taking your lunch break, we thought we’d give you a little story to enjoy. Hopefully we’ll get your mouth watering and your taste buds tingling, and you’ll want to pop in for a coffee and a big chunk of cake (or perhaps two pieces!) You can always grab a slice to takeaway if you’re too busy to stay, we don’t mind.

“Kay is our beautiful baker who gets up super early to bake lots of tempting treats which you will fi­nd in our deli.

Kay's carrot cake



You can’t be a baker unless you like cake, it’s the law, and Kay told us she’s rather partial to a wedge of carrot cake – apparently it helps her to see in the dark ;)

Kay is kept especially busy every day baking lots of cookies, millionaire’s shortbread & chocolate fudge cake. Her brownies are also bestsellers, but for those who prefer white chocolate, Kay makes white choccy blondies too!

Summer we salute you festival!

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Here at Urban we view it as our moral responsibility to welcome summer in and to ensure this is done in style, our Big Brother, Urban Beach is holding a ‘Summer we salute you’ festival across the Easter Bank Holiday weekend (Sat 7th, Sun 8th and Mon 9th April).

Indulge in some chill out time with the Beach crew from midday every day, they’ll have loads of house and guest ciders for you to enjoy, as well as their own concoction ‘the monster under the stairs’ – that’s all we can say about this fearsome beauty ;)

For all the ladies out there, bartender Christian has created a fruity cider cocktail called ‘the old strawberry rose’ (chaps, don’t be put off if you fancy a try). It’s an infusion of local old Rosie cider with a delicious handcrafted fresh strawberry gomme, floating in a sea of crisp mint.

All of these ciders will be married perfectly with heaps of sausages – veggie, pork & leek, lamb & mint and chilli & pork – as well as a host of sausage specials on the specials board (no jokes please).

From 4pm (ish) on the Sunday afternoon, they’ll have some folky acoustic live music from a marvellous duo, Luke Adam and friend.

So if you want summer to be a success, grab a straw bale, sun hat and some sun cream and head on down, otherwise you’ll only have yourselves to blame for any rain that gets bestowed upon us. You know you want to, everyone loves the sunshine.

With love and hugs. Xx

P.S: If you want any more info call the Beachers on: 01202 301509. They’ll be very happy to help. x
