Issue four — January 2009
New Year,
New You?!
Prestige Catering

With the hangover finally lifting, we are looking forward to an exciting and busy year ahead. From new products in the store, new events, new menus to new reasons to celebrate.
To welcome in 2009, we have created some special offers and promotions, details of which can be found on our website.
Villandry Prestige Cookies
Given the love our bakers pour into our all-butter croissants, and the level of care we take over our gourmet sandwich range, it would be a crime not to have a look at the full menu we offer for outside catering. From a board meeting for 10 to full blown canapés for 100, from a dinner party at home to picnic hampers for a carpet supper, we have a great range of ideas.
Can’t see what you need? Give us a call to see if we can produce some bespoke for you?

Indulgent yet affordable!
Shop Sale
Winter may have certain disadvantages over summer, but we have taken inspiration from the slopes of the Alps and are creating a simple yet delicious Winter Warmer Menu of raclette and boiled potatoes in the Charcuterie every Monday night. More details to follow shortly so keep an eye on the web site or ask a member of the team for details.
We have a few delicious treats left over from December and are offering them at a fantastic discount of 20%. When they’re gone, they’re gone! Look out for the gold stars on all discounted products.
Private Dining and Events
New Bar Menu
Villandry has effortlessly established itself as one of Fitzrovia’s most popular venues and a destination for foodies from all over London. With the choice between our minimal chic restaurant, with an ambience that will appeal to all ages, our more relaxed and intimate cocktail bar or French Charcuterie bar, Villandry offers flexible and atmospheric spaces for your exclusive event.
With wi-fi access throughout the day, Villandry provides a wide variety of dining and entertaining options: whether a working breakfast, business lunch or birthday party for 200, Villandry can meet all your event’s needs. All menus can be served in any area, and served buffet style if required.
Our attractive cocktail bar can host up to 50 seated for lunch or dinner, or 100 for a canapé reception, and has a lively yet casual atmosphere. The bar is an ideal destination for parties, particularly at weekends. The bar team have created an extensive cocktail list to enhance the selection of spirits, beer and wines; and like the food, all wines are chosen after a rigorous selection process to ensure each is an excellent example of its region and grape variety. With its leather banquettes and dark wooden hues, reminiscent of a New York piano lounge, the cocktail bar is the perfect venue for an event to remember.
We are rather excited about our new bar menu which launches on Monday 12th January. The menu offers what we like to call “Proper Hamburgers”. The range on offer includes the Classic American to the Fish and chips burger with home made tartare sauce.
For those who are looking to detox in the New Year, we have extended the range of salads including the Superfood Salad containing broccoli, peas, feta and green beans with sweet chilli dressing.
