Forget the weather channel, BBC weather and AccuWeather. We’re much more scientific in our approach here, we’ve looked at the tea leaves (in our rather lovely organic loose leaf tea) and we can tell you right now that we’re heading for a scorcher of a Summer.
We’re talking kaftans and legs out, bean bags and blankets in the garden, parasols and sombreros at the ready. We’re booking you in on those outside tables by the river, on the terrace, on the patio, on our new table under the awning and of course the big central tables for those who fancy al fresco brunches and sunny lunches.
Our Summer Daytime Menu brings back some of your favourites but also cranks things up a notch.
Salads, yes, but … are we allowed to say that this might be the best Tuna Niçoise EVER? Not only is it topped with a generous slab of seared sashimi grade tuna but we’ve also added our smoked garlic prawns.
Our luxury Chicken Caesar Salad is back, with free range (of course!) chicken, herby sourdough croutons and you can add Moroccan silverskin anchovies if they tickle your fancy.
In Waffle land, drum roll please, the Devon is back. A freshly made Liege waffle topped with local clotted cream ice cream and then clotted cream (that goes gooey in the best possible way) and finally topped with finest British strawberries in a rosé port syrup – Wimbledon eat your heart out – LOVE-ALL!
The bar is just about to launch its new Summer Cocktail menu and that will be worthy of its very own post. The bar has already been showcasing a Watermelon Granita Cocktail – cool or what!
Summer Days had me a blast but ahhhhhh those Summer Nights.
As it’s Lucy and Simon’s final Summer at the Club we have some amazing nights planned. Check out the June and July calendar here. There are still tables available for our final ever Mexican Weekend. Always a firm favourite and a chance to channel your inner Frida Kahlo. We have a Basque weekend, Bastille Day, the Greek Taverna and Feast and a Zanzibar Supper and strEAT food nights are back. Greek strEAT, Melvin’s Zanzibar bEATs and StrEAT and Emilio is doing a brand new Italian strEAT night. More on this and August and September coming very soon.
