Welcome to our blog

 

This is just stuff we're talking or thinking about. Sometime it's important stuff to us, sometimes just waffle, sometimes (not often) we think it's interesting.

The Jenkinsons’ Bistro team in Lytham are continuing their theme night successes in 2015 by announcing 3 more dates starting with a St Valentine’s Day Massacre, gangster and moll, evening on the 14th... it could only be then!


With dishes such as Oyster Rockefeller, Griddled Gangster Sirloin and Ragtime Rice Pudding you get an idea of what the night is going to be all about and with a whole lot of fun mixed in you’re in for a great night.


March brings us Mother’s Day lunch on Sunday 15th, very appropriate as Jenkinsons is hosted by a mother and daughter team. They excel in creating magical dishes from locally sourced produce, served up with wholesome service that ensures you quickly become more like friends than clients. With choices of 2 courses for £15.95 or 3 for £18.95 you need to phone your booking in fast on 01253 730512.


Whilst Mother’s Day’s lunch may not have people dancing around the tables it’s going to be pretty much guaranteed on Saturday 21st March with the St Patrick’s Night celebration at Jenkinsons. There’s going to be a lot of blarney mixed in with dishes such as Irish Stew, Dublin Coddle and Guinness Chocolate Cake!

"We have as much fun as our customers”, said Jess Jenkinson who runs the front of house side of the bistro and the daughter of the team “Some get dressed up and some just enjoy the food and fun, everybody is welcome”.


St Patrick’s Night is a 3 course meal at £19.95 and, as with all Jenkinsons’ theme nights you need to book in advance and early as they fill up very quickly, just call Jenkinsons on 01253 730512.

Jenkinsons' Bistro in Lytham have been running themed evenings every month since earlier this year, offering freshly sourced produce cooked to perfection – with a whole load of fun thrown in.


Nights so far have included the swinging 60’s and James Bond with the food and music always in keeping with the era.


The next theme night is Mamma Mia ABBA on Saturday 29th November. So if you want to have a "Super Trouper" night, this is where you need to be. Maybe you're a 'Dancing Queen' or love your 'Money Money Money'... enough!!


"Some of our regular customers get into the groove and dress up. The Bond night found us with quite a few tuxedos and gowns, the 60's theme found a few hippies dusting off their kaftans", said Jess Jenkinson, one of the mother and daughter team that make Jenkinsons' a great local bistro "I'm pretty sure we have as much fun as our customers!"


Tickets are £19.95 per person for a three course meal and you need to book in advance as there are limited spaces, just call Jenkinsons on 01253 730512. A deposit of £10 per person secures your table, non-refundable with balance due on the evening.

We're big fans of buying local, it creates stimulating high streets and keeps as much money as possible in the area's economy. Farmer's and Christmas markets do both and there's a simple pleasure in knowing where your food comes from whilst supporting local suppliers.


For us, it’s a great way to say hello to new people, chat with our fans, get great feedback and catch up with other local suppliers.

MacMillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee got people across the Fylde eating cake and drinking tea and coffee all in aid of raising valuable funds. Local business, Lytham Coffee Co’s offer to donate coffee got even more cafes involved.


Jeremy Smith from Lytham Coffee Co said ‘Many of our customers had already planned to get involved and some were not sure what they could do. It’s been great fun being involved. I visited as many coffee mornings as possible on the day and clearly everyone involved was enjoying the fun with raffles and competitions. We also visited and donated coffee to businesses that were not our customers!’


Coffee, tea and cakes were the order of the day with many creations donated by home chefs. Last year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raised over £20 million for MacMillan Cancer Support and early signs show that this will be more that beaten this year.


‘From cafes and bistros in our home town of Lytham to Blackpool Tower Ballroom, from a deli in Thornton to a vintage coffee van in Ramsbottom we estimate that the businesses we’ve donated coffee to have raised well over £6,000 between them.’

MacMillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning
MacMillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning

A local business is going all out to support the Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ on 26th September by giving away free coffee to their customers.


Lytham Coffee Co is encouraging all of their cafe, restaurant and hotel clients to get involved by offering to replace all of the coffee they sell that day for free. In the run up to the event they will be spreading the word through their website, Twitter and Facebook to encourage as many people grab a coffee and donate to Macmillan.


Jeremy Smith from Lytham Coffee Co said ‘It’s seems a bit obvious that we should be supporting it given that coffee is our business, to be honest we feel a bit daft that we didn’t realise this a lot sooner!’


MacMillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning started in 1990 with a local fundraising group who decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle, as they might normally do, but donate the cost of their coffee and cakes to Macmillan. That seed of an idea has grown to become an nationwide event that has raised over £113 million through coffee mornings in homes, offices and businesses throughout the UK.


‘Cafe Culture has become such an established part of our world so this is a great way to fundraise. There is no doubt that the growth in ‘proper’ coffee has driven this popularity as more and more people experience the range of fantastic flavours and realise that instant coffee just can’t measure up to it.’ said Smith. ‘There can’t be an easier way of fundraising for this great charity than by sitting down on 26th September and taking a break from the rush of modern life with friends or colleagues. It’s a lot less effort than a marathon. ’
