Miniyaki'sAlfresco Dining Events

Miniyaki-96 - Copy - Copy - Copy.jpg

Our impromptu 'Alfresco Dining Events' last year, that were born from a need for socially distanced outdoor safe settings, will be back this year. 

With the need for social distancing hopefully a distant memory, we would still love to welcome you to our very layed back woodland bordered garden lined with giant fairy lit beach trees & Japanese lanterns. Albeit in a much more layed back way.

We will be offering you a mini festival feel event with our Caterpod serving hot food straight from the hatch, street food stylee, neighboured by our new Japanese bakery & Tea house tent offering a selection of hot and cold teas and soft drinks alongside a selection of Japanese bakery goods. We will even have some to suit gluten free & vegans.

We are also very excited that, at all but a couple of our events, we will be having a beautiful little vintage truck serving you wines & cocktails this year too!!

Having spent 10 years living and working in Japan, I would like to bring you a taste of Japanese cuisine as someone living in Japan would enjoy rather than someone just visiting.

With Miniyaki's you will experience festival, street food, izakaya (bar) food and everyday Japan's mama's kitchen stylee dishes.

If you like quirky and different then this is the place to be!

Dates of our events this year are as follows:

25th September

8th & 9th October


 If you are a group of 20 + guests and would like to book a Miniyaki's night with us for a private meeting/function/party then please let us know.


If you don't fancy driving home afterwards, why not stay in our lovely Belltent for 2 situated right next to the event.

(Now closed for the season)



































We can also highly recommend any of the following Doward based holiday accommodations, within walking distance from the event.

Doward Park Campsite



We are not a restaurant. These are occasional street food stylee pop up events held outside in our garden through the 'nice weather' seasons. 
As such guests are invited to order, pay and collect their meals straight from our caterpod trailer in traditional street food style. 

All food & drink must be purchased at the event. 
All seating remains pre booked only. There is no need to pre order food this year.  But if you fancy making a picnic of it booking is not required. Just turn up with a rug, choose a spot, order, pay and collect your food and enjoy!

We will have a menu for the events published nearer the time.  Please remember that we are a small caterpod trailer, not a restaurant, so space is limited, and we are unable to offer an extensive menu.  But if you or your party have any specific dietary requirements, please let us know in plenty of time so that I can have appropriate dishes on the menu.

We now have a mobile vintage bar attending our events. So we no longer permit customers to bring their own drinks.

These events are held in our garden ontop of the wild Doward, so the ground is uneven in places. Please take this into account if you have elderly or disabled guests with you and with the footwear you choose.

The road to our property (leapingstocks road) is very rough. Please go slowly and maybe don't come up in a super low profile vehicle.   As it is a public road we unfortunately cannot do anything about it.

We respectfully ask for anyone bringing children or pets, to please keep them supervised at all times and within the event area.

All guests are asked to stay within the fenced off event area.

We have a unisex toilet available for guests to use around the back of the house.  We sadly do not have disabled toilet facilities.


Come to Our Event
(ALL food and drink must be purchased at the event.
It is not permitted to bring your own.)

Thanks for for your enquiry. Someone will get back to you shortly.
