With the wedding of the year less than a month away all eyes are on Harry and Meghan as millions of us gear up to watch the right royal fanfare.
To make sure everyone is part of the big day on Saturday 19th May, restaurants across London are hosting sparkling events and screenings. From a royal menu at Pomona’s, bottomless Pimm’s at Greenwood in to sky high celebrations at Bokan, here is your comprehensive guide on where to watch the royal wedding in the capital, brought to you exclusively by YCB.
Dine like royalty at Pomona’s
Notting Hill restaurant Pomona’s will be celebrating the wedding of the year with a live broadcast and exquisite set menu by Head Chef Wolfe Conyngham, younger son of the 8th Marquess Conyngham (aka the rock n roll peer). For £30, dine like royalty on House-Smoked Salmon to start, followed by Roast Poussin and a quintessentially British Eton Mess for dessert, all accompanied by a Kingly cocktail to toast the bride and groom.
The set menu is available through lunch and dinner, book on 020 7229 1503 or by emailing email@example.com
A Very British Bottomless Pimm’s Brunch at Greenwood
As the country prepares for the wedding of the year, Greenwood in Victoria will be toasting Harry and Meghan with an exclusive Bottomless Pimm’s Brunch and viewing party! Expect a royally good Saturday afternoon with Pimm’s galore, whilst watching the day unfold across on one of its sixteen large plasma screens.
Priced at two courses for £35 or three for £40, American-style dishes including mac ‘n’ cheese balls and shrimp and bacon croquettes, provide a welcoming curtsy to Meghan; whilst quintessentially British plates such as Eggs Royale and avocado on toast (plus free-flowing Pimm’s!), are enough to make a Prince proud.
The limited edition Bottomless Pimm’s Brunch is available from 11am – 5pm, for two hours, on Saturday 19th May only.
Right Royal Knees Up at Ealing Park Tavern
