From the beginning of the year I have been trying to step away from the ordinary and routine and find something new and different to enjoy once a month. I was most disappointed that my To Do Item for June had to be postponed due to the uncharacteristic rain we endured and that there weren’t enough days left in the month to plan anything else. Luckily the end of one month is followed by the beginning of the next which means Sunday Lunch at Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville.
Katy’s hosts a lunch at their venue every first Sunday of the month from 10h00. There is a phenomenal harvest table of food made with love by the team at Fresh Catering, a fully-stocked bar, and some fabulous live entertainment. I have wanted to go ever since I first heard about it, but every month I ended up having plans for the first weekend of the month. Until now…
I decided to make the most of being free this past weekend and invited a bunch of my girls to join me. I arranged to meet them at 11h00 and despite this being only an hour after they opened their doors, all of the indoor tables were *booked when I arrived. Thank goodness I arrived earlier than expected as I managed to secure a couch area on the balcony. It was glorious out there to begin with as it wasn’t as noisy, but soon the crowds gathered and the wind picked up (but not before we’d enjoyed the delicious feast that was on offer).
The serving station was opened at 12h00 and there was quite a rush to get a plate of food while it was still piping hot. The lunch works on a pay-and-weigh system where you dish up what you want from the food provided, weigh your plate at the end and only pay for that amount at the tills (with card machines) provided. I found it was a lot quicker to pay with cash but I suppose if I was paying for two or more plates it would make sense to pay with a card rather.
The lunch was heavenly! It filled the void in my stomach from having arrived early (and hungry) and was so hearty that I had a very happy “food baby” at the end. It was so lovely spending a Sunday chilling, catching up with friends and watching the people.
*The Sunday Lunch doesn’t allow bookings or reservations, so it’s first come, first choice of seating. I’ll remember this for next time.
This was one of the things on my list to do this year. See what else I’ve got up to or what I plan to get up to over here!
