Miniyaki'sAlfresco Dining Events


Our impromptu 'Alfresco Dining Events' last year, that were born from a need for socially distanced outdoor safe settings, are back!

Imagine a woodland bordered garden lined with giant fairy lit beach trees & Japanese lanterns. Now imagine sitting under the protection of these huge trees in your own twinkly wonderland while enjoying a Japanese meal with your friends and loved ones in a very socially distanced way.

This is what you will get at one of our Alfresco Dining Events.

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

The pre ordering menu is made live nearer the time of the event, but if you would like to have an 'idea' of what you can expect on the night please see our full repertoire by clicking the button below.


Booking and Terms & Conditions

We are excited to be doing our Alfresco Dining Events again this summer.  Enjoy safe socially distanced dining in our woodland bordered Herefordshire garden under fairylit trees and Japanese lanterns.

Booking & Ordering - how it works.

We have a limited number of tables, so we keep these events as pre booked only.

A £15 booking fee per table is taken at the time of booking. This confirms your booking and is then deducted from your final bill.

(Refundable only if cancelled with 48 hours notice)

When you send your booking enquiry we will send you a payment link for the deposit along with directions to get to us.

We also ask people to pre order their meal before the event. A bit like ordering a take out, but you're eating in...or out in this case!

The menu will be opened for ordering 2 weeks before the event, giving you plenty of chances to glance through our menu and make your choices for the night.

We will send you a message letting you know when it is open.


All allergens are listed on each dish. If you have a particular dietary requirement please ask at the time of booking.  


There is no full menu on the night but We will have an 'extras' board available if you would like to order soft drinks and extra snacks, starters and desserts.

When you know what you would like please just put your order in through our 'let's chat button' at the bottom of your screen.  We will then send you a sum up payment link for the full amount minus your deposit.  You are free to pay before or on the night. 

All orders need to be in no later than 3 days before the event. This is because all your food is cooked fresh to order, and so that we know how much we are cooking.

We will send a gentle reminder. But if there is no response, we will have to cancel your booking and release it for rebooking.

Plan's Changed?

We do understand that plans change. So if you need to cancel just please let us know within 48 hours, and we will of course refund you.  Giving us plenty of notice will help us as, we won't be cooking your food in vain and gives us a chance to fill your table.


This is an unlicensed event, so we will be serving a selection of Japanese drinks and other soft drinks on the night.  

We invite you to bring any alcoholic drinks with you, we can supply glasses, but ask that you take your own empties home with you.


Parking is available outside the property or in front of the property or in front of the yard.

Please do not park in front of or on the drive of our neighbours.

When you arrive

You will see a large cream gate with a smaller gate to the right with a hands free hand sanitizer unit on it.  Please use the hand sanitizer before you enter and make your way down the gravel path to the gated entrance where someone will show you to your booked table.


  •   This is a country property, the ground can be uneven in places, and there is a gravel pathway, so please bare this in mind if you have elderly or infirm guests with you and with your choice of footwear.

  • Please take note of any signs warning of steps or uneven ground. 

  • All guests are asked to stay within the event area marked by the fence.


  • This is an outdoor event and we can't control the weather.  If it rains we will have no choice but to cancel the event.  Otherwise the event will go ahead. 

  • It can get a  bit chilly under the trees so please bring something to wrap around you just in case.

  • We request that anything you bring with you is taken home with you. This includes empty bottles, cans etc not purchased at this event.

  • We have an outdoor unisex public toilet available for our guests on site behind our house. Sorry but this does not have disabled access.

  • Children are free to run around within the fenced area but not in the stable block that is currently being renovated.

  • Please understand that I cannot come to your table while I am cooking for everyone. But if you would like to come and ask anything at the pod I am happy to speak to you.

  • Unpleasantness towards any of the Miniyaki's staff will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave.
