Champagne School and High Tea, Friday 8th May 2020


Join us for an indulgent high tea spent tasting seven Champagnes in three flights, alongside an apéritif and a sparkling wine from England. We’ll begin the tasting with a rosé apéritif. The first flight will showcase the different grape varieties used in Champagne alongside a lobster salad and some delicious London-cure smoked salmon terrine prepared by our Head Chef. The second flight will showcase some well-known producers, comparing and contrasting different House styles. As you learn how Champagne is made, coronation chicken and a scrumptious home-made sausage roll will be served. We will then move on to discuss the concept of vintage Champagne. We will end the day with a demi-sec English sparkling wine alongside a sumptuous selection encompassing two plump scones (one fruit and one plain) with home-made raspberry jam and, of course, clotted cream, plus a delectable brownie dressed with our King's Ginger sauce. Should you happen to tire of Champagne, an assortment of artisan leaf teas will also be available for you to try. Hosted by Katie Daniel, Fine Wine Sepcialist

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

We’re currently offering virtual events, but from August we are starting to take bookings again. We’ll be offering private dining for smaller gatherings and transforming our Napoleon Cellar into a restaurant, with separate tables for each group of guests. Find out more.

Treat yourself, your family or a client to one of our exclusive tutored or walkaround wine tastings. One of our experts will guide you through a range of wines while educating you on the evening’s topic. From blind tastings to producer focusses, these are unmissable chances to broaden your wine knowledge.

At our walkaround tastings, a selection of fascinating wines will be set out for you to explore, with an expert on hand to elucidate on the evening’s theme.

The Napoleon Cellar and the Pickering Cellar provide the perfect venues for your tutored wine tastings.

Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel. Design influences hail from Spanish wine cellars or Bodegas, and use handmade London tiles to create archways and columns that extend through both the mezzanine and the sub-basement level of the cellars.
