How The Headland Hotel Celebrates…
As the country prepares to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s remarkable 70-year reign next month, one of Cornwall’s finest hotels is hosting a luxurious Jubilee Afternoon Tea.
The Headland, Newquay’s five-star clifftop hotel, is offering a limited-edition afternoon tea that will allow guests to enjoy this quintessentially British pastime.
Treat your family, friend, or partner to a royal dining experience, where you can take in breathtaking ocean views in effortless, casual grandeur.
Director Veryan Palmer said, “We would love for guests to join us for this momentous occasion in history, which means you can eat and drink in style with the people who matter most.”
“We have adapted the menu to reflect the Queen’s longevity and stature, including Coronation Chicken and Victoria Sponge. It promises to be a truly memorable celebratory summer.
Besides the Coronation Chicken, other sandwiches include classics such as cucumber and cream cheese and poached salmon, dill mayonnaise and lemon, while there’s also an appetizing sun-dried tomato quiche , basil and Cornish cheddar cheese.
Desserts include the Strawberry Trifle, Raspberry Macaroon and Jubilee Shortbread Cookie, but the star of the show is the Queen’s Chocolate Cookie Cake, described by Royal Chef and former Queen’s Personal Chef, Darren McGrady , as “Her Majesty’s favorite cake by far”.
For those in the mood for a drink to toast his 70-year reign, there’s also a delicious selection of cocktails. The Platinum Martini blends HM-named gin, Lillet 1872 and edible platinum, while the Duketh Kernow combines London-style gin, barley, sorbet and Earl Grey.
Other mouth-watering options include The Headland Fruit Cup and the Chandon Garden Spritz. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea is offered daily until June 30and (2 p.m.-4 p.m.).
On Saturday, June 4, there is a special chance to join the hotel’s Big Afternoon Tea in the ballroom, where guests will be welcomed to celebrate the historic occasion.
Family and friends are invited to dine at large communal tables while watching the Queen’s Platinum Party live from London.
