This year marks Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and all across the land, the excitement is building.
For the ultimate Platinum Jubilee dining experience in vibrant surroundings, we invite you to join in the merriment at our convivial Ivy Collection restaurant. In true Ivy style, we will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that this momentous bank holiday weekend is one you and your loved ones will never forget.
To show our appreciation of The Queen’s unwavering service to crown and country, each of our brasseries will be brimming with iconic red, white and blue design touches – from sculptural floral arrangements to patriotic decoration.
A Menu Fit for A Queen
Our splendid Jubilee Afternoon Tea includes dainty Ivy cured smoked-salmon and cream-cheese finger sandwiches, warm fruited scones and almond macarons served on an elegant cake stand. Cups of refreshing teas and zesty summer infusions, or a glass of champagne, are the perfect accompaniment to this British tradition, which dates back to 1840. Widely attributed to Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, one of Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting, this much-loved ritual began as a means to fill that ‘sinking void’ between lunch and late dinner.
As for the jewel in our dessert menu, that has to be the showstopping bombe filled with mint chocolate ice cream and topped with a platinum fondant crown. In the spirit of Union Jack colours, our red velvet raspberry cake and sugar-coated strawberries are equally delectable. And as a nod to the great British sense of humour, we couldn’t resist giving our commemorative cocktails regal titles such as Lilibet, Victoria and Queen Bee.
Running alongside our all-day menu featuring brasserie classics with a contemporary twist, our majestic Platinum Jubilee treats are inspired by a variety of quintessentially British summertime desserts and cocktails that have been enjoyed throughout Her Majesty’s reign.
Hip, hip hooray!
