What’s on ahead of the Jubilee weekend
The Queen will mark 70 years on the throne this June and in honour, the country will be treated to a four-day bank holiday, with a whole host of Jubilee themed events to help mark the occasion. Here are some of the great products, menus and events our customers have on offer ahead of the weekend to make it a truly royal affair.

The five course menu will consist of foie gras terrine with port jelly, Dover sole à la royale and an assiette of strawberries with a gingerbread and liqueur biscuit. It costs £65 and includes a complimentary chocolate gift from Charbonnel et Walker.
