Heading for the beach? Longleat? Stourhead? A picnic in the woods? We can take the hard work out of feeding the family with our Dike's Picnic Boxes – they are made for sharing, with freshly-made sandwiches, local cakes or fruit, and crisps.
Choose from our basic Ploughman’s Picnic, with traditional sandwich fillings and Mortimer’s buns, a more sophisticated Deli Picnic (with Lavender Blue Cakes and Kettle Crisps), our health conscious Lighter Picnic (with fruit) or the proper local Dorset Picnic, complete with local ham, pate and cheese sandwiches, a selection of delicious slices from Honeybuns and Brown Bag Crisps.
Each box serves four, with 16 assorted triangle sandwiches, four cakes or buns or fruit, and four packs of crisps. The Ploughman’s and Lighter Boxes are £15.96 (£3.99 a head) and the Deli and Dorset Boxes are £21.96 (£5.50 per head). We can also make up individual Chicken Salad or Cheese Salad boxes at £2.39 each.
You’ll need to call us the evening before, or first thing if you want them same day. Then you can pop in on your way and pick them up, together with anything else you might need for your day out, such as drinks, ice, sun cream etc.
Call Andy Knapman at the shop on 01963 362204 to order your picnic boxes and don’t forget to let him know if you have any special dietary requirements, eg gluten free.
