As many of you know we hold an exclusive evening at Buckingham Palace which, if I do say so myself, surpasses our client’s expectations on every level. For those clients who loved the event and want a similar experience but in a different location, we are offering another prestigious event incorporating a private tour of Windsor Castle followed by a sumptuous dinner at the Waterside Inn owned by Michel and Alain Roux.
As clients arrived last week to the restaurant which is set in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the River Thames in the quintessential English village of Bray, they were eager to board the minibus to make the short journey to Windsor Castle. After a brief security check, the tour guide took them on the tour and I must say she was most knowledgeable being able to answer all questions posed to her without hesitation. As there were several Americans in the group, they were absolutely thrilled at the tour and bought up the gift shop whilst sipping their complimentary glass of champagne.
A short ride back to the Waterside Inn and then the guests entered the stunning private dining room via a separate entrance. The newly refurbished room has a reception lounge and then the dining room is accessed via beautiful double doors where an elegant board room dining table seats up to 15 guests. French doors lead out onto the private terrace and with background music and the evening sun shining it really is the most serine experience.
There are various mouth-watering menus available depending on your budget however our client chose flaked Devon crab with melon & fresh almonds served with marinated prawns and roasted fillet of Angus beef, cooked to your liking, with Macaire potatoes, asparagus tips and a tarragon flavoured jus. Your Sommelier and Banqueting Manager is on hand throughout the evening and the term ‘personal service’ truly comes into its own in this setting. Alain is often seen wandering around the restaurant in his chefs whites and he really is in the kitchens overseeing the preparations!
If I haven’t whetted your appetite by now then I’m sorry, as I have totally run out of adjectives to describe just how wonderful the evening is. I suggest you don’t take my word for it but book an evening for your guests and I promise you will not be disappointed.
