This year the Charles Weston has a slow cooker full of mulled wine brewing behind the bar. Made by the staff and served in a wine glass with a clove garnished slice of orange.Had a sharp taste that it didn’t loose and a nice amount of juice. Strained as well so no sludge waiting for you at the bottom which is always nice.Was definitely worth going back for a second. If you happen to be there on their wine and roo night I think it’s also worth asking to swap the glass of wine for a glass of the mulled stuff. Well worth it.

Would I order a second? Yes.

Would I return to the venue just for it? Pretty likely.

Will I be back next year? Highly likely.
