The Golden Heart Winterbourne

We went as a large group in May this year, the food and service were very good.  My husband and I shared a Carne Platter which was very tasty, I especially loved the Southern-fried buttermilk chicken thighs, really flavoursome.  For my main I had the Wholefood Salad and added a chargrilled chicken breast. This really was delicious and even though I was pretty much full, I couldn’t resist the desserts which I had seen leaving the kitchen and opted for Baked Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake.  I’m a big cheesecake fan and this did not disappoint.  Everyone enjoyed their meals and we spent the rest of the evening sat out on the pretty garden patio area, finishing our drinks in the warm evening sun.  It really was a perfect night and a perfect end to our day.

Review – 11 months ago-

I’m not one to usually post a review but enjoyed this year’s Show so much I felt I should.
The food available inside was great with plenty of choice (and not too expensive either!). I particularly liked the bubble tea and ridiculously rich stand within the marquee section.
So much on offer for only £10 entry, the children really loved the BMX display and we enjoyed the bar! The pig racing was also a lot of fun.   Looking forward to next year’s Show already!

Review

A must-see attraction

We stayed for the whole weekend at the Balloon Fiesta and camped in the nearby temporary campsite. This is just walking distance to the main arena. The balloons are just fantastic, and (weather permitting) fly in the morning and the evening. Thursday and Saturday evening they also had the “Night Glow” of static balloons lit up to music and a spectacular firework display. Lots of things to see also like stunt flights, wing walkers, parachute etc. The arena is very large and has trade stands galore, mostly craft type or food outlets. Two bandstands with live music was also a bonus.
