Look what I found at the newly opened Visitor Centre at Hengistbury Head, Christchurch…. An American airstream trailer serving fresh homemade food and drinks. Bridie the owner of Curly (the airstream is named curly after some American Rock star, who owned him before Bridie) has said that they will be here until after Xmas, and curly is available to hire for events and festivals all around the country.
For this event they serve Christmas tree shaped waffles, Christmas tartlets, bacon rolls, pulled pork rolls with homemade spiced apple sauce, soup, homemade mulled wine and spiced cider, tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
I had a cup of pulled pork and spiced apple sauce (because I am low carbing for a while) and a cup full of pea and ham soup and they were both fantastic. As I was stood waiting for my order there was a steady stream of folk coming to warm themselves with a spiced cider, which they said was very good. I heard also that the word was spreading about the quality and tasty affordable food on offer. With people telling their friends that Curly was about.
I have already made plans to go for a lovely walk next weekend and call in to see Curly on the way home.
If you park in the car park it only costs 60p for 2 hours or £1.80 for 24 hours, which should give you plenty of time to walk up an appetite and then eat your way through champagne Bay’s menu.
