Enjoy a Wonderful Wimbledon Treat with a Tennis Themed Great British Picnic

It’s that splendid time of year again when we can finally crack open the Pimm’s, eat strawberries and cream and spend the day watching Wimbledon.

Like most of us, bagging that elusive ticket to SW19 has yet again proved impossible, but all hope isn’t lost for Wimbledon-themed celebrations.

The Shankly Hotel are offering a cracking tennis themed Great British Picnic and afternoon tea, so you can enjoy the tournament whilst you tuck into some classic British summer food.

Wimbledon fever has officially hit the nation, so get involved with The Shankly’s wonderful Wimbledon festivities.

The Grand Slam of Great British Favourites

You’re invited to join us at the Bastion Restaurant in the Shankly Hotel to celebrate the nations favourite tennis tournament.

We will be showing all of the action from this year’s hugely anticipated event on our TVs and offering two summery treats for diners.

Tuck into The Bastion’s Great British Picnic which will take place inside the Bastion Restaurant and Bar.

Made up of a delicious pork pie, a selection of succulent cold meats, silky smooth pate, tasty breads with pickles, chutney and olives, a punnet of succulent strawberries and indulgent clotted cream. This is served with a decadent glass of fizz and is just £20 for two people.

Available Monday-Friday, get ready to enjoy all of the action from centre court as you celebrate some Great British classics.

Serving an Ace Afternoon Tea 

Alternatively, guests can enjoy Wimbledon with a traditional afternoon tea.

Watch your favourite world-class players take to the courts as you indulge in all of your tea-time favourites.

Delicious finger sandwiches, brioche buns and pastries are accompanied by beautifully made scones and delicate cakes, with jam, clotted cream and a choice of tea or coffee. Why not add a splash of decadence with a bottle of fizz to really top off a perfect Wimbledon-worthy afternoon.

Why not order a scrumptious strawberries and cream cocktail and really treat yourself.

All of this for £30 or £40 with a bottle of prosecco for two; a touch more affordable than a visit to the Aorangi Terrace.

This great offer is available Monday-Friday.
