All the cider in Dorset couldn't have prepared us for this one! We weren't even sure is was going to be busy but the Borough Gardens in Dorchester were full of keen cider drinking party types from 3pm till late. There was every kind of cider and perry you could ever want and the live music was incredible.
As for Dorset Wood Fired Pizza, we have never seen a queue as long and for so long as that night. We were popular to say the least! Partly due to other food vendors pulling out or selling out early, by about 7pm we were the only vendor selling food for hundreds of hungry folk.
We know some people waited ages and ages for their pizzas which we feel bad for but even so we had only great feedback. People in the queue were happy (although hungry) and we just about managed it. We earned our end of day drinks that day I can tell you!
If there is one thing not related to cider that we learned from this festival, it's that we could have done with a second oven. Watch this space then as we may well be expanding next year so that our mobile pizza operation can not only cater for huge crowds but in multiple locations at once!
We are definitely going to be at the 2016 Dorchester Cider Festival, hopefully with two ovens but we guarantee the same quality authentic pizza cooked fresh before your eyes in a wood fired oven.
