New partnership with Quaff Fine Wine Merchant

We’re proud to announce the partnership of our 1839 Hospitality and Events team with Quaff Fine Wine Merchant. Working in collaboration with Quaff, we’re bringing fantastic wine tasting events to the 1st Central County Ground, featuring delicious food accompanied by wines from around the world.

Quaff was founded in 2005 by Toby Peirce. Toby’s early adulthood was spent playing professional cricket, which took him to Stellenbosch in South Africa during the long English winters. In South Africa he played cricket, coached schoolchildren, met his wife, and drank an intemperate amount of wine with the sons of local producers and growers. This inevitably led to a career in wine when cricket finished, and Toby worked for a UK-based agent for a leading Champagne house, selling to the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Tesco.

Having gleaned enough from this experience to set out on his own, he opened the first Quaff in Portland Road, Hove in 2005.

So if you want an intimate, high-class evening of stunning food complemented with handpicked wines with a backstory, let our chefs tease your taste buds with signature dishes whilst Toby takes you on a wonderful journey, exploring specially-selected wines from around the world, carefully chosen to match each course of your menu.
