As of Saturday 10th March, Searcys will provide their catering services to the famous Exbury Gardens. The spectacular 200 acre gardens were the inspiration of Lionel Nathan de Rothschild in 1919, whose vision created one of the finest woodland gardens in the country.
Lionel de Rothschild, Chairman of Exbury Gardens comments that: “Searcys is a strong British brand operating at several iconic locations throughout the UK. Their focus on excellence and attention to detail make them an ideal choice and gives us access to an unparalleled breadth of experience to develop quality and innovative catering at Exbury.”
The partnership with Searcys will bring in a new era for the Mr. Eddy’s Café & Restaurant, which will relaunch with a fresh look, and expand to include private areas for parties and social occasions. Mr. Eddy’s will provide guests with a menu that reflects the seasons and showcase the best of British produce with dishes such as a Trio of Cumberland sausages, or Baked salmon served with sauce vierge, dill, garlic potato cake and vegetables and a vegetarian option of Baked spiced bean and lentil, Mediterranean vegetables topped with feta cheese. Additionally, Searcys will give a further boost to the other three food outlets throughout the gardens, serving British homemade sandwiches, salads and cakes – perfect for visitors and locals wishing to have a picnic whilst enjoying stunning views.
Searcys’ menus for Exbury Gardens reflect the seasons and focus on the excellence of home- grown products, showcasing the best sustainable produce available in the British Isles. The close relationship Searcys has with British producers means that, in the summer months, 90% of all seasonal fruit and vegetables are grown in the UK, and sourced locally wherever possible. All eggs are free range, milk is Red Tractor certified, and all meat, including bacon and poultry, is UK-reared.
“We are delighted to be able to add the stunning Exbury Gardens to our portfolio. This is an incredible opportunity to partner with a landmark British location that shares our commitment to provenance and sustainability. We are looking forward to providing the highest level of service in these wonderful surroundings, to help create memorable experiences together for our customers”, says Matt Thomas, Managing Director of Searcys.
