Bestival to host Underground Restaurant

Bestival on the Isle of Wight is set to host the Underground Restaurant - showcasing the culinary talents of Kerstin Rodgers - again this summer.

The location has been one of the highlights of the September festival in recent years and the organisers have confirmed it is going to be back in 2012.

Revellers who want to ensure they get the chance to sample the food on offer at the Underground Restaurant have been told that they need to book now to secure a place.

"Bringing fine and explorative dining to a field, Kerstin will be hosting boozy brunches, long relaxed lunches and dinners for those who want to escape the hubbub of the festival and experience the opulence of eating like a king under canvas," commented the people behind Bestival, which is set to run from September 6th to 9th at Robin Hill Country Park.

The menu will be confirmed nearer to the time of the festival, due to the fact Rodgers intends to use seasonal and local ingredients in her dishes wherever it is possible to do so.

But it was revealed by the organisers of Bestival on the Isle of Wight that South Seas Soup served in coconuts, shipwreck pavlovas with salted caramel and seafaring fresh spaghetti with a seasonal salad of flowers are likely to be included, indicating a clear theme to the menu.

"Expect beautiful food served on heritage crockery, gorgeous wait staff in nautical uniform and pinnies, bubbles, french cider and hand-picked wines at the bar," it was added by the people putting together the Underground Restaurant at the festival.

With Bestival known for fancy dress outfits as well as live music, individuals heading to the Underground Restaurant may wish to ensure they are dressed for the occasion.

Stevie Wonder, Sigur Ros, New Order, The xx, Bat For Lashes and Florence and the Machine are among the bands set to perform on the Isle of Wight at Bestival next month.
