SAIL AWAY WITH WINSTON CHURCHILL THIS SUMMER
AT OUR NAUTICAL SUMMER TERRACE!
Inspired by Sir Winston Churchill’s travels with the Admiralty yacht HMS Enchantress during his appointment as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 to 1915, the award-winning alfresco terrace will turn into a maritime oasis featuring vintage nautical compasses, anchors, boat oars and sea shells bringing you a step closer to the shores of Malta, Gibraltar and Capri.
The expert bar team led by Head Bartender Daniele Bresciani will be introducing a range of new summer and wastage free cocktails to accompany the nautical feel and tantalise your taste buds. Seasonal specials include ‘Churchill’s Tot’ – a whisky and sweet vermouth concoction aged in a wooden barrel, ‘Lord Nelson’ created in honour of Admiral Nelson who led his fleet into victory at the battle of Trafalgar, ‘Jennies’ Bevvy’, a gin based drink inspired by the courage of all women in the Royal Navy as well as ‘The Winkle’, especially designed to honour the Winkle Club formed in 1900 by Hasting’s fishermen to provide help to the underprivileged. For every Winkle cocktail served, £1 will be donated to the Winkle Club.
Executive Chef Mark Sainsbury and his team have also created a refreshed summer menu inspired by the Mediterranean flavours and key destinations of Churchill’s travels. New dishes include a delicious ‘Fruit de Mer’ seafood platter, juicy Tagliata with homemade Chimichurri sauce, Aromatic Scallops and Dressed Crab Salad with avocado and mango dressing.
The bar's pièce de résistance is a specially commissioned life-size bronze statue of a young Sir Winston Churchill by renowned sculptor Lawrence Holofcener, entitled “In Conversation” which sites amongst guests on the private terrace.
The terrace can also be hired for private events and offers the perfect venue to mix & mingle with your guests surrounded by inspiring decoration, award-winning cocktails & smooth and classy service.
