Escape to the many green spaces close to The Egerton with your own “Alice” picnic, complete with a selection of “Cheshire Cat” tea sandwiches, homemade “White Rabbit” plain and fruit scones, exquisite “Alice” cakes and pastries, and bottled water. Bring your thermos and we will provide a selection of Hatter Teas to choose from.
For an extra-special and unique experience, allow our Hatter butler to escort you on your picnic, with a wicker picnic hamper filled with “Alice” treats and a playful flamingo croquet set. Our Hatter butler will carefully serve your picnic along with two Champagne cocktails.
Take a journey through the rabbit hole with our Hatter. Enjoy a selection of freshly cut sandwiches, including H Forman’s smoked salmon, free-range egg mayonnaise, Blythburgh roast ham and English mustard, cucumber and cream cheese, and coronation chicken, before our home-baked scones with delicious preserves and Devonshire clotted cream.
Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available.
Specially designed for children under the age of 12 years, we serve a fine selection of sandwiches and freshly baked white rabbit scones, all accompanied by a choice of tea or hot chocolate.
The “Six O’Clock brownie” is a rich chocolate orange brownie, while the ice-cream sandwich combines three flavours, sandwiched between toasted brioche bread. Little ones will adore our “Drink Me” mocktails.
Our Martini Masterclass with our talented barmen Esley and Sahbi is the perfect way to spend an informative and enjoyable (not to mention a delicious) hour. Esley will begin by explaining the history and origins of martini; tell you a little bit about his own background; and divulge his top tips in order to make the perfect martini yourself. There will be the opportunity to taste the magnificent martini creations and enjoy homemade canapés of tomato and mozzarella bruschetta, smoked salmon with crushed avocado on cape seed loaf, and coronation chicken on brown bread.
