Morden Hall Park Food Festival

The National Trusts’ Morden Hall Park lies at the end of the Northern Line. This former country estate and deer park hosted the Morden Hall Food Festival in a beautiful and tranquil setting. Luckily for us the sun shone on a glorious bank holiday weekend.

There were various stands showcasing many different culinary treats, from cheese and chutney to cakes and cider, and glorious different aromas from all the hot food on offer. Miss P’s Barbecue seemed to be the most popular choice with a queue throughout the day, so we followed the crowd to see what all the fuss was about.

It was certainly worth it, we ate deliciously succulent Black Angus Beef Brisket, dry rubbed, slow smoked, chopped and eaten with Original BBQ sauce served in a bun with coleslaw. Washed down with Pimms, and followed by a crepe from Simmons Creperie filled with Nutella and banana for dessert.

Pimms and BBQ – just what you need on a summers day.

After a short snooze in the sun to digest our feast we headed for an explore around the grounds.

Food Festival or not, Morden Hall Park is a wonderful place to escape the city and soak up some nature. The park is open 365 days a year, and even better it has no entrance fee. Gilliat Edward Hatfeild donated his estate to the National Trust stating that ‘a fee shall not be charged so that my Morden estate shall be open to the public.’
