A.K.A the Car-B-Q
We are delighted to welcome local caterer Giles back to Lechlade Festival. Giles has always enjoyed cooking on an open flame and with a flare for flame came the idea for the Car-B-Q.
The Car-B-Q was originally bought 10 years ago and has been modified into a unique way of cooking burgers that certainly won’t disappoint. Come and grab a handmade burger made with meat from local butchers and enjoy the theatrics of their open fire pit.

Serving great coffee, fine tea and good food.
The Cafeteria van is a 1966 Citroen HY van, purchased in France. She had retired from work as a pizza van and was getting dusty and rusty in a french barn so was brought to the UK and brought back to life.
Operating in and around the Cotswolds, The Cafeteria can be found in Cirencester charter market on Mondays and Fridays, craft and farmers markets on Saturday and available to book at special events. The van and her friendly team return once again to the festival, bringing ethically sourced and locally roasted coffee, the UK’s first fairtrade tea brand, lovingly handmade cakes from a local bakery, milk from a local dairy and fully compostable Vegware packaging made from plants.

Each crêpe is packed with flavour and nutrients. So why settle for just any ordinary food when you can have a crêpe that’s both tasty and good for you.
