Come On Down To The Mermaid Cafe...


Ahoy!  It’s been a busy weekend for The Fisherman's Larder!

We’ve just hosted ’The Mermaid Cafe' - our ‘sail out’, pop-up event in aid of RNLI (Anstruther RNLI Station)  
and British Divers Marine Life Rescue.

The Mermaid Cafe welcomed 30 adults and 14 children into our driftwood garden for an alfresco celebration of the sea - with a mouth-watering menu featuring locally sourced, sustainably caught seafoodhomegrown vegetables & herbs and local, artisan ingredients. And the weather held fast for us all day!

We’re delighted to confirm that we raised £300 for two courageous charities - both saving lives at sea!

Scroll through the images to view our official invitation and finalised menu. Also, take a peek behind the scenes of our outdoor venue, via images from a pre-event photo shoot with Duke Photography. There are also a couple of post-event shots of Jim and crew enjoying the ‘after show’ party!


SPECIAL THANKS

Darnley's Gin (for bringing their gin home to the East Neuk Of Fife! Now distilled at Kingsbarns Distillery & Visitor Centre, we loved using the spiced variety as the base for our seaside gin and garden strawberry fizz)

*Vegware (who create a range of completely compostable  disposables, ensuring that parties and events don’t have to cost the earth - or the ocean)

*East Neuk Shellfish + Fisherman Tam (who donated scrumptious, just-caught local shellfish)

*Pittenweem Chocolate Company (who donated their divine Salt + Caramel Chocolate, handmade in Pittenweem)

*The Golf Hotel Crail for lending us glassware and The Spindrift Guest House for lending us extra tables.

*Our fabulous guests - who quickly booked their spaces, travelled from all over the East Neuk, as far afield as Aviemore, Glasgow and Uruguaybraved a chilly September afternoon and gave generously to our two amazing charities. You were brilliant. THANK YOU! 

*Dominic Ibbotson at Duke Photography (whose stunning images say it all!)

*Event produced by Acoustic Wave - boutique media, marketing & entertainment studio
