If you need some menu inspiration for the Jubilee weekend, and want to feed your friends and family some true British delicacies, then the chefs at Loveday & Co, London’s only private Members club for seniors, have already done the hard work for you.

They competed in Loveday’s ‘Great Platinum Jubilee Menu’, where they all prepared a dish fit for the Queen. Some of the dishes were based on the Queen’s original coronation menu including an asparagus starter, dover sole fish course and a strawberry dessert.

Oliver Peyton OBE, celebrity restaurateur and judge on The Great British Menu, visited Loveday Kensington on 26th May 2022 to enjoy this very special menu to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. He was joined by Loveday’s Chairman Laurence Geller CBE, who originally trained as a chef, and Loveday’s Group Executive Chef Matthew Dodge.

The winning dishes will be served to Members at Loveday Residences on Sunday 5th June, where family and friends will join their loved ones to dine on this regal feast.
