Miniyaki'sAlfresco Dining Events

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.

Walk down our Japanese garden inspired path and gateway,  where you will find our pretty little caterpod ready to serve you straight from the hatch, street food stylee, from the menu that will be displayed infront of the caterpod.

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!

Keep a look out for our dates for this year.


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. 



 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 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 operate a BYOD (bring your own drink) system, for which there is a corking charge per table.
This covers the supply of glasses and disposal of your empties.
Table of 2 = £5
Table of 3+ = £10
This is an optional extra for those wanting to BYOD.
This applies to any soft or alcoholic drinks and is a charge per table not per how many are drinking. 
A small selection of soft drinks and teas will be available to purchase.

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 cannot do anything about it.

Well behaved children and pets are of course welcome.  But please bare in mind that we are offering a dining experience not a playground and parents will be expected to keep their children/ and owners their pets, close to them and supervised.

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.
