Venturing outdoors with a picnic is a great springtime tradition, so what better way to celebrate the Queen’s Sapphire Jubilee than with a luxury lunch al fresco?
In honour of Her Majesty’s Jubilee this year, the regal staff at our hotel near Hampton Court have created the perfect picnic hamper menu to help you celebrate in style with the whole family this Easter.
Here’s what we’ll be packing next time we hit the park:
A Best of British Sandwich Selection
For something to suit everyone, assemble a selection of these best of british sandwiches:
– Scottish smoked salmon, watercress and cream cheese
– Roast beef with horseradish mayonnaise and baby watercress
– Cheddar cheese, chutney and salad
– Classic cucumber
Pastries and Pickables
A British picnic wouldn’t be the same without a few of these tasty nibbles:
– Mini pork pies
– Scotch eggs
– A selection of cheeses, pickles and biscuits
– Mini pasties
For a healthy side or vegetarian option, be sure to include these meat-free alternatives:
– Green Salad
– A selection of crudité and dip
Dine like a true Brit, pour a cup of tea and enjoy these classically British sweet treats:
– Victoria sponge
– Battenberg Cake
– Scones, jam and clotted cream
It’s always Pimm’s O’clock when the sun is shining in Britain, so bring along:
– A flask of tea (don’t forget the milk and sugar!)
– Bottled water
– Pressed fruit juices
Venturing outdoors with a picnic is a great summertime tradition. However, if the weather does decide to turn, why not visit our riverside restaurant in Hampton Court to sit down for some seasonal, locally sourced food?
If you would like to stay somewhere with a little royal touch this year, head to one of the most picturesque Hampton Court Hotels for a whole lot of history just a stone throw away from the city.
