Stop By For Supper.
Whilst Sweet Pea might be a cafe during the day, we also operate on selected Friday and Saturday nights. We open our doors until late, to serve up meals made to a standard unmatched by any other business in Sturminster Newton.
Sweet Pea by Night.
Our set evening menu brings a dynamic formal dining experience to Sturminster Newton. What is the secret to our consistent high quality? We use the finest ingredients from local suppliers wherever possible.
BOOGIE WOOGIE FESTIVAL
This amazing event brings people in from far and wide to enjoy a variety of wonderful musicians. Come and tickle your tastebuds whilst our in-house pianist tickles the ivories. We have schedules longer opening hours to cope with the high volumes predicted for the duration of the festival, but limited capacity means booking is still a must!
Be Impressed by Beanpress
Calling all coffee lovers! If you would like to increase your coffee savvy, whilst savouring delicious food and a wealth of different coffee flavours, then this is the night for you. Our roaster, Ben, from Beanpress Coffee Co in Winterborne Kingston, will be giving an engaging demonstration and talking about all things coffee. There will be plenty of coffee for you to taste. In fact, a coffee theme will run throughout the night, with a variety of coffee dishes planned for the evening's menu. And, as if things weren't good enough, you will walk away with a free gift at the end.
Stars and Stripes Night
Come with us on a road trip around the USA, on our unique American themed night. Our star spangled dishes include sticky ribs, southern fried chicken, quarter pound burgers, freak shakes and pumpkin pie. The event will operate on an à la carte basis, with Little Peeps options available to ensure that the whole family can enjoy an evening out. Feel free to come along in fancy dress, because there will be a prize for whoever has the best cowboy hat.
Fourties Wartime Evening
Come along and take a step back in time to enjoy the music and the food of the 1940s. A bite sized assortment of old favourites like bread pudding and corned beef hash will be on offer, along with glory buns and mini hotpots. Tea will be served up throughout the night, but gin and sherry were the drinks of the time so bring some along if you wish.
Sweet Pea Thai Fusion
Sample the spices of Asia as Debbie and our guest Thai chef create a fragrant assortment of dishes for you to try. There will be soup to start, followed by a medley of mains, and a dessert. We'll end with jasmine tea as is tradition.
Mamma Mia Stonebaked Pizza
Our wood fired pizza men are back for another exciting Italian Night. Kick off the evening with one of our renowned Italian Job salads as a starter. Then, have your favourite pizza stone baked by one of our speciality chefs in an authentic pizza oven. And finally, enjoy a generous scoop of Italian gelato or tasty Tiramisu. Bellissimo!
Tastes of the Middle East
You enjoyed our last event so much that we have done it again! We will be celebrating the vibrancy of Middle Eastern foods, ranging from Lamb Tagine to Moroccan Snake Cake, in an event designed to tantilise your taste buds.
Sweet Pea Greek Taverna
Stop by Sweet Pea to experience the distinctive tastes of the Aegean. Kick the night off with some delicious calamari rings or shell on prawns, before your choice of either lightly spiced Beef Stifado or creamy Vegetable Moussaka arrives. Then, finish with the jewel of Greece's dessert offering: gelaktoboureko (a Greek custard tart, to you or me)!
Caribbean Calypso Evening
For this evening, we will be serving up all of our favourite Caribbean flavours at Sweet Pea. You will receive a mocktail on arrival, and be greeted by the sound of West Indian music. Expect tasty plantains, spicy curries and that popular favourite - jerk chicken. Our delicious tropical fruit trifles and spiced rum cake shouldn't go a miss either!
Sweet Pea for Tapas.
On selected Friday evenings, Sweet Pea opens its doors to offer an eclectic Mediterranean menu filled with a range of tasty tapas dishes and grazing boards. Dishes are served on an à la carte basis, with a wide range of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options available. Whilst pre-booking is not required, it is advised, as our little cafe fills up very quickly.
