Following the successful launch of its cookbook, Giffords Circus’ acclaimed restaurant Circus Sauce is this week launching a new dine at home service called ‘Flying Sauce’

Can we have a spotlight over here, please?

The wonderful Giffords big top may be off limits at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have a taste of the Circus.

Flying Sauce opens for a limited time from Saturday, June 27, 2020, and will serve three-course meals, based on the rustically extravagant Circus Sauce feasts traditionally served in the acclaimed travelling restaurant.

“We have a set price three-course meal for £20 per person that can be collected from Fennells Farm, near Stroud, and taken home to warm up and enjoy,” says Circus Sauce executive head chef, Ols Halas.

“The menu will change weekly and offers a little bit of the circus magic to enjoy during lockdown. The first week will be inspired by recipes from our recently published book, The Giffords Circus Cookbook.”

The Flying Sauce meals can be ordered online at and collected from the restaurant based at Fennells Farm, Lypiatt, near Stroud, GL6 7NE.

“We are so excited about Flying Sauce,” says Lil Rice, Giffords Circus producer. “It really is a delicious way to enjoy a taste of the circus while we wait to come out of lockdown.”
