We will gladly admit that you can never go wrong with a hearty helping of traditional strawberries and cream at this time of the year, all washed down with a fabulously fizzy glass of champagne or Pimm’s. Duke of York Square is home to a delicious mix of eateries which all have fabulous foodie refreshments to satisfy your cravings. Whether you want to pick up something fresh ahead of your Strawberries & Screen session or you’re celebrating the results in style, why not get into the British spirit and treat yourself to something special?
For a gorgeous treat that will satisfy even the most outrageous sweet tooth, Gallery Mess is spoiling us with the return of their ever popular grand slam afternoon tea. Feast your eyes on delightfully quirky tennis ball macaroons, refreshing Pimm’s jelly and yummy court inspired Battenburgs that taste too good to resist. If you fancy something a little more savoury, Gallery Mess also has a terrace offer of unlimited rosé and cheese sharing boards, which would be ideal for Strawberries & Screen viewings.
Don’t forget that throughout Strawberries & Screen, the Square’s much loved Partridges will be providing Britain’s favourite refreshments to enjoy throughout Wimbledon with a pop-up bar, including fresh strawberries and cream, Pimm’s and bubbles. The perfect accompaniments to enjoy as you watch each match, come rain or shine! And if you’re planning a relaxing evening following the tennis, Polpo’s new summer menu is sure to hit the spot. We particularly recommend the panna cotta with strawberries and basil, which tastes both refreshing and sweet.
For a vibrant twist on traditional Wimbledon tipples, why not head to Comptoir Libanais for their Strawberry Love cocktail? A perfect serve of strawberry and lime combined with rum and mint, available throughout the tournament from start to finish. Manicomio is also concocting a Wimbledon inspired cocktail, the Number 1 Speed. A tasty blend of Tanqueray gin, peach liquor and fresh strawberries, muddled together and served long with fresh apple juice, this certainly captures the mood of a British summer afternoon spent watching the tennis.
