The Bivouac – Venison burger

This was our first meal at The Bivouac. We’d travelled up, on the Friday evening, after work, . Collecting Lucy from school en route.

It only took us an hour or two to get there, which was cool.

Everything well-thought out and beautifully presented.

And I’m not just talking about our meal – the cafe was on two levels, with the lower one acting as a family room with a slew of things to entertain toddlers and above. Lucy particularly enjoyed the sticker books.


The Bivouac – Falafel Burger

The Bivouac - Falafel Burger smWe recently stayed at The Bivouac a fantastic retreat in North Yorkshire. We stayed in one of the 7-berth woodland shacks. No electricity and the only heat was from a wood-burning stove in our one-room shack.

Fantastic weekend.

Our first day we spent kicking back and relaxing – to the point where we even visited the on-site cafe for a splendid lunch.

I tried the vegetarian Falafel Burger with Red Pepper Marmalade
