Filberg Lodge expands with on-site catering

The Filberg Lodge in Comox has contracted Tria Fine Catering to provide summer services.

The Filberg Lodge and Park in Comox has contracted Tria Fine Catering to provide the Tea House operation for the summer, and catering services for park events.

The picturesque nine acres of gardens with magnificent views of Comox Harbour and Beaufort Mountains has been serving the Comox Valley for over 30 years, hosting community events, festivals, weddings and art shows.

The park is open to the public daily. The licensed Tea House and patio with lunch menu is open four days a week during summer months. Visitors can tour the historic lodge and visit the Gift Shop.

The collaboration with Tria is a big step towards the vision of the Filberg board to explore and enhance the value that the venue can offer the community by expanding the range and quality of services available for hosting a variety of events. With an established, full-scale catering business that focuses on fresh, local flavours, Tria is well positioned to offer custom options suited to the upscale events hosted at the park.

The Tea House kitchen has been renovated to support the greater service expectations. It will open to serve Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday, May 10.

The Tea House will open officially for the season in June, at which time it will move to its four-day summer schedule.  “The new menu features fun bistro style eats with a mingling of updated traditional favourites,” says Tria owner and chef Kathy Jerritt. “It will change from time to time based on what is seasonal and readily available from local producers.”

In an atmosphere of casual elegance, Tea House guests may also partake in low tea, or enjoy a selection of local wine, beer and spirits on the patio. For confirmed dates and hours of operation, visit triafinecatering.com/filberg-tea-house or follow on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Filberg-Tea-House.

The public is also encouraged to see the spring blooms during the annual Filberg Park and Lodge Easter Bunny Trail event this Saturday and Sunday.

The rich history and breathtaking scenery of the Filberg Lodge and Park provides a charming, magical backdrop for creating memorable events. The beautifully landscaped grounds offer five locations for exchanging vows. With catering on site, it will be much easier for couples to choose to host their reception in the park. Beyond weddings, the board expects catering and the revitalized Tea House to attract greater use for both public and private events.

The Tea House will be open during the annual Filberg Festival and BC Shellfish Festival, and during the four Thursday evening Summer Concert Series.

Offering food and beverage menus suited to each event, Tria at the Tea House will offer more ways for guests to enjoy these signature events.

Besides the lodge and Tea House, other Filberg amenities include the new Comox Rotary outdoor stage and semi-private garden areas, available to rent for private or public use.
