We are delighted to announce that we will be holding a Petwood Platinum Picnic on Sunday 5th June 2022 to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Bring your family and friends along to the glorious grounds of the hotel and enjoy a sumptuous picnic or Afternoon Tea in a box. You will also be entertained by the wonderful 78 DJ and one of our amazing singers who will be performing on the terrace to celebrate this unique occasion.
When you book your place at the picnic, you will be asked to pre-order your preferred picnic or afternoon tea in a box which will then be prepared and ready for you to collect on the day from our Petwood Suite overlooking the gardens. You can also order drinks in advance to collect when you arrive so you can make the most of your time in the gardens with your friends and family.
We will have some tables outside in the gardens for guests who do not wish to sit on the grass. These are available on a first come, first served basis. There is no time limit for your picnic and you are free to enjoy your afternoon at your leisure in our beautiful grounds.
We have two picnic boxes to choose from as well as vegetarian options so there is something for everyone!
For those not wishing to take part in the picnic outside, we still have some availability for Lunch, Afternoon tea and Dinner inside the hotel and outside on the Terrace. We are expecting high demand and places are limited. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
Please note that we cannot accept gift vouchers as payment for the Platinum Picnic. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause
WEATHER UPDATE - SATURDAY 4TH JUNE 2022
Due to the weather forecast we have taken the decision to move the Platinum Picnic indoors and will be seating people in our restaurant and Petwood suite. Our team are currently phoning all guests who have an outside booking to make suitable arrangements.
We respectfully ask that only picnics and food purchased from the hotel is consumed in the grounds and in the building. We reserve the right to ask people to leave the premises if they bring their own food.
Please bring picnic blankets and if you wish, a fold up chair.
Please ensure that children are supervised at all times. The Petwood gardens are wonderful for exploring but we do not want your little ones getting lost on the day in the crowds.
There are NO ball games or racquet sports allowed in the gardens at any time.
No barbecues or other outdoor cooking facilities are to be brought onto the premises or the gardens.
Please remember to keep all dogs on a lead at all times in the gardens.
We would respectfully request that you arrive promptly to ensure you take full advantage of your time allocation. When you arrive, please follow the signs to the Picnic Collection point to collect your picnics and any pre ordered bottled drinks. Drinks by the glass can be ordered from the outside refreshment marquee on the lawns.
If you would like to call to discuss your booking, please do so on 01526 352411
PLEASE NOTE: We are accepting card payments ONLY
DIETARY REQUIREMENTS: Please let us know if you or any of your guests have any allergies or special dietary requirements if you have not already done so.
Please note that as all picnic hampers are prepared to order, we are unable to offer refunds for those unable to attend once they have booked.
