The Local
Food Festival

Fun and Eats for the whole family.

CORONAVIRUS Updates

In light of the current pandemic and the increasing risks of infection by the coronavirus COVID-19, we have come to a number of decisions.
The Surrey Food Festival has now been postponed. We have been in discussions with the local authority and along with our amazing demonstrators and artists, have provisionally arranged for the festival to be held on September the 5th and 6th. at the same location. This amazing festival is known as the enduring festival for a reason, and that reason is now clear!

If not we'll just have to wait till the #TheSurreyFoodFestival to enjoy one of @purbeckicecream many gorgeous flavours. Salted caramel, honeycombe hash, rhubarb and rosehip being some of our favourites here at TLFF HQ.

First decision made, it's a Pie day! Next decision, what filling? If only it was already #thesurreyfoodfestival2020 and we could pop over to 100% vegetarian food truck @vegpieella and select one of their home made pies (with mash and gravy of course).
Which would you choose? 
1: Guiness and wild mushroom. 
2: Root Vegetable. 
3: Creamy Leak. 
4: Spinach  and Goats Cheese
