Get a slice of the festive action with pizza in these pods at Sarehole Mill.
After plenty of doom and gloom lately, it’s only fair that we experience a bit of Christmas cheer this year – and providing some to the people of Birmingham this upcoming season is Sarehole Mill, who’ve planned their very own ‘Christmas Pizza in the Pods’.
Guests will be able to sit inside one of the mill’s new outdoor dining pods and enjoy plenty of warm food and drink on a wintery night and get into the festive spirit. The pods are transparent igloos, located in the mill’s courtyard, and can seat up to five people.
You will also be welcomed to the courtyard with a hot welcome drink before being seated in your own igloo where you can enjoy a great meal and a wonderful atmosphere with festive music playing in the background. Sarehole Mill’s menu for this festive event includes a winter warmer soup served with sourdough bread, a choice of freshly baked pizzas and a hot Christmas tart for dessert.
Sarehole Mill has seven time slots available, which all last for 90 minutes, and you can choose from the following times: 6pm, 6.15pm, 6.30pm, 7.30pm, 7.45pm, 8pm, 9pm. The event costs £24.50 per person, which includes the food and welcome drink, and there will be a selection of drinks for you to purchase on the evening.
The mill, which Lord of the Rings author J.R.R Tolkien took inspiration from, requires there to be at least two people per booking. You can also add extra people up to a total of five, however they must all be from the same household or support bubble. Sadly, there are only two nights available for you to feast on pizza in one of their pods, Friday 4 December and Friday 11 December, so book you slot at Sarehole Mill on their website pronto.
Sarehole Mill advises that you dress for the weather and you’re welcome to bring blankets to stay cosy as although the pods will keep you dry, it may get rather chilly.
The former sheet metal producing mill is now home to a new modern day bakery which serves delicious freshly baked treats and you can even order baked goods during lockdown for you to collect and enjoy at home.
