Experts in the art of timeless hospitality and quintessential British charm, come spring and summer DUKES LONDON embraces the very British art of the picnic. A far cry from a tasteless, pre-packed sandwich, DUKES’ gourmet picnic hampers, created by Executive Head Chef Nigel Mendham, are bursting with culinary treats. Served by a private picnic butler in gorgeous Green Park, just a short stroll from the hotel, DUKES’ picnickers will be the envy of other park-goers.
Done properly, it’s hard to beat the British picnic, especially when it’s been meticulously prepared by someone else! Let DUKES create a luxurious picnic enclave just for you, complete with warm rugs and scattered with plump cushions and blankets. As the sun shines overhead (umbrellas or pop-up gazebo are provided if not!), prop yourself up and savour a hamper full of very British delicacies such as poached loch duart salmon and artisan cheese. Vegetarian picnic hampers are also available with treats that include baked avocado quiche and chickpea salad. Meanwhile, little ones can also join in the fun! Delicious children’s picnics include pasta salad and strawberry trifle.
As a guest at DUKES it’s the perfect way to while away an afternoon, but also an ideal respite during a busy work day, the DUKES picnic is available to all. Treat yourself come lunchtime or make the most of our long, British summer evenings with a sumptuous picnic with friends in one of London’s loveliest parks.
