Candles softly flickering to the dulcet tones of a 1940’s songbird, capturing the imagination of diners as they sit back, relax and are transported back to a time of simple enjoyment.
The Cockpit Café has now launched an Evening Menu to meet the needs of discerning diners.
Elegantly dressed vintage style ‘air hostesses’ glide from table to table, seducing diners with sumptuous food and an eclectic selection of wines, gins, spirits, craft beer and Cocktails.
The Cockpit Café landed in Wednesday Market, Beverley, back in December 2017. Predominantly a café during the day, serving brunch, light lunches, homemade scones and cakes, locally sourced tea, coffee and vintage inspired soft drinks.
They recently launched traditional Afternoon Tea, including a ‘His and Hers’ Afternoon tea menu and a ‘Trolley Dolly Afternoon Tea’ with a twist. Customers can also choose from a range of tea inspired cocktails served in teapots to include a Spirited tea and Champagne tea menu.
In the evening, the innovative café transforms into a 1950’s style bar.
A glamorous time for air travel, the 1950’s is a key element of The Cockpit Café experience. This, alongside the café’s ‘trolley dolly’ waitresses and stylish décor, transports customers to destinations around the globe from the comfort of their cocktail glass.
The talented young head Chef, Lee Miles, has designed the Evening Menu and is a firm believer in working with fresh, handpicked local produce. Lee has ensured there is something available for everyone as there are options suitable for vegans, vegetarians, nut allergy sufferers and Gluten free options.
They have incorporated one of our most popular dishes as a starter; Smoked fish chowder with garlic toast. Also on offer is Seared Beef steak, honey roast carrots, sweet potato puree, sautéed greens and pinot noir jus. For dessert why not try their homemade Yorkshire Lass gin and lemon tart with raspberry sorbet and candied pistachios.
The Cockpit Cafe have experienced Mixologists on hand to make your perfect Cocktail to accompany your meal. If you don’t see your favourite Cocktail on the menu, they are happy to go off-piste and create it for you.
Commenting on the launch of the Evening Menu, founder Lucie Mountain said:
“Our evening offering has been predominantly a bar service with platters to accompany the large selection of local and national craft beers, wines, spirits, cocktails and significant gin selection.
Due to customer demand and off the back of our successful ‘Crepes and Cocktails’ Pop up evening, where our chefs got to showcase their talents, we have decided to launch an Evening Menu.
“Our head chef is a young, passionate and extremely talented chef, who has previously worked at reputable high end local restaurants, as well as gaining valuable experience as a chef in New Zealand. This is an opportunity to showcase his talents and passion by offering a traditional menu with a creative twist, using fresh ingredients”
“No Ping food comes out of The Cockpits galley!!” Lucie is proud to add.
“We have received fantastic feedback already from customers who have experienced the menu”
The Evening Menu is available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 6pm.
