An unusual venue is the Ryton Organic Gardens Restaurant.
We went for the eighth Annual Potato Weekend, there were a record 141 varieties on display. We came home with 9 varieties to plant in our garden to grow for ourselves.
Favorite Dish: We have now booked up for the 9th Annual Potato Weekend on Saturday 2nd Feb 2002. When we went to the Potato Day Meal on 3rd Feb 2001, I had Chunky Vegetable & Potato Soup followed by Mediterranean Vegable & Potato Moussaka and Carol had Sweet Potato, Saffron & Goat's Cheese Terrine followed by Mixed Seafood, Potato & Barley Broth. All for £11.95 per head.
Visit Ryton Organic Gardens. Ten acres of landscaped grounds devoted to organic gardening. Situated 5 miles east of Coventry towards Rugby, just off the A45, along an un-numbered road leading to the village of Wolston. It is signed from the A45 with brown tourist information signs saying 'Ryton Gardens'. Run by the Henry Doubleday Research Association (HDRA) which began in 1954 My own favourite part of the garden are the vegetable areas. (Photo of the Rose Garden © 1998 David Lawson)
Favorite thing: Just wanted to respond to a comment made about the village of Ryton on Dunsmore being 'uninspiring'. Having lived here for several years we actually have an awful lot of history, right back to the church and the Domesday books. Try the village out before assuming!
