Circus Sauce, the travelling restaurant that accompanies Giffords Circus on its summer tours, is launching a winter restaurant in Gloucestershire this November 2021.

Winter Sauce takes up residence at The Old Gore Barn in Cirencester on Friday 12 November 2021, serving dinner on selected evenings, as well as Sunday lunches, throughout November and December 2021.

Led by Circus Sauce executive chef, Ols Halas, Winter Sauce offers a set menu of hearty British dishes inspired by local, seasonal produce.

Dishes on the November menu include fillet of longhorn beef with pepper cream and truffle hash browns; wild mushroom and chervil dumplings; trout on the fire pit with crayfish sauce and winter brassicas; and crab apple, chocolate and pistachio meringue pudding.

Food is served banquet style on Emma Bridgewater crockery, inspired by Giffords Circus, with dinner service including five courses for £55 per adult and £30 per child – while a three course Sunday lunch costs £45 per adult and £25 per child.

Executive chef, Ols Halas, said: ‘It’s exciting to work in a different season as Circus Sauce is usually open during the summer months that Giffords Circus tours.

‘The Old Gore provides us with a great venue with amazing facilities, we are looking forward to creating a dining experience like no other!’

The venue seats up to 100 guests with a bar on site run by The Old Gore Barn. The restaurant will also be available to hire exclusively for Christmas parties.

Winter Sauce opens on Friday 12 November 2021 with bookings being taken now.
