CHRISTMAS IS COMING, THE GOOSE IS GETTING FAT....HOLD YOUR PARTY IN THE CARIBBEAN THIS YEAR, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GET BETTER THAN THAT!

We are now taking bookings for Christmas Parties in December (both lunchtimes and evenings) for our unique and exciting Christmas Party Menu.  Three courses of traditional and seasonal Caribbean cuisine to suit all tastes, including tea and cofee, chocolates, crackers and VAT from just £19.95pp.  As usual all dietary requirements are catered for including a great range of Gluten-Free dishes, Dairy-Free, Vegan and Vegetarian. An added bonus is that THE ORGANISER EATS FOR FREE on all parties of 10 or more booked and confirmed by the end of October.  So, what are you waiting for?  Book now and bring some Caribbean sunshine to your Christmas Party this December!

If you’ve ever been to the Caribbean and enjoyed Jerk Chicken fresh from the Grill, fried dumpling and a cold Red Stripe beer on the beach – or stopped a street corner stand for a spicy vegetable patty, ackee and saltfish and a rum punch – then you’ll know what Caribbean food is all about and won’t need a second invite to come to Marinades, Gloucestershire’s only Caribbean Restaurant.  If not, then come and let us show you what it’s all about as you experience the unique flavours and relaxed, friendly ambience of the Caribbean.

Caribbean cuisine is a delicious melting pot, drawing ingredients and methods from Europe, Africa, Asia and The Americas - combining them with the native foods and recipes of the Islands.  Caribbean cookery absorbs these influences and creates a unique blend of cuisine developed over many years.  Recipes and dishes will vary from island to island but what all have in common is the use of fresh herbs and spices. Seasoning and marinades are essential in bringing out the tropical and sunny flavours of the Caribbean which we really want you to enjoy and spread the word about!
 

Sustainability at Marinades - As an independent, family run restaurant we try to ensure that wherever possible our meat, fish, vegetables and ice-cream is sourced and supplied by other local family owned businesses.   By coming to Marinades you will be supporting a local business established since 2003 and many other similar businesses used by us.

 

 Special diets are welcome and we have plenty of Gluten-Free, Vegetarian and Vegan choices readily available - probably more so than any other restaurant in the area. Any dietary needs you may have we will be delighted to accommodate and if you are coeliac, don't forget to ask for Gluten-free bread wherever Hard Dough Bread is mentioned.

 

We hope that you enjoy your meal with us and that you will recommend us to your family, friends and colleagues.

Since opening in 2003, we have been lucky enough to attract media attention through local radio, local press and regional press.  In 2004 we were nominated for Severn Sound Radio "Best Place to Eat or Drink" category and, in August 2006, BBC Radio Gloucestershire recorded their face2face sunday afternoon programme at the restaurant.  We were awarded bronze in Summer 2005 and silver in 2006 in the "Newent-in-Bloom" awards.  April 2007 saw us win "Valued Staff Member" award in the Forest of Dean District Council "One Stop Local Shop" campaign.

We were also delighted to be interviewed by BBC Radio Gloucestershire for a feature on Food in December 2007 and for this interview to have been used in the BBC National UK Black podcast - see http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/podcasts/ukblack/ 

We also were approached to do the catering for the GLOSREC Black History Month Event at the PictureDrome Theatre in Gloucester during October 2008.
