Bents open Winter Food Market in Open Skies

Already the biggest UK retailer in terms of catering covers, at around 1,000, Bents have added more food options for their increasing customer base for Winter and Christmas 2017 by turning a part of Open Skies into a Bavarian Style Food Market.

The Winter Food Market opened to customers on Wednesday 18th October and is set to be a big draw over the coming months.  Arriving at 12:30 on Wednesday afternoon the enlarged car park was very nearly full and the Winter Food Market, an addition to the existing five food offerings at Bents which include a Tapas Bar and the Pet Cafe, was full to capacity.

The menu includes traditional Bavarian favourites such as Bratwurst, a Bents own veggie option of Pulled Mushrooms (very tasty) with a selection of hot and cold drinks including beers and wine.


See a gallery of photos from our visit including Bents Christmas displays where the Pink theme was proving most popular in early sales.
