• Celebrate the Joys of Christmas with Searcys

    10 November 2020

    Did you know that Searcys has been celebrating the festive season for over 170 years? Established in 1847 by Victorian entrepreneur and the Duke of Northumberland’s confectioner John Searcy, we have been at the heart of the most special of all seasons since the tradition of Christmas parties and gift-giving was made popular by Victorians. Christmas may be a little different this year, but British restaurateur and event caterer Searcys is on hand to add some sparkle to your festive season.

    DAILY FESTIVE AFTERNOON TEA

    Daily festive afternoon teas are being served at The Pump Room in Bath, The Orangery at Blenheim Place, for the first time this year – on top of the Gherkin and, out of a suitcase, at St Pancras Champagne Bar and Brasserie. Enjoy a nod to Christmas on the menu, featuring beetroot and smoked salmon blini (The Pump Room), Smoked turkey rillette, cranberry and pickles (the Gherkin) or Turkey and cranberry toastie (Blenheim Palace). Our favourite part of an afternoon tea is the delight of miniature cakes, with our December selection of Stollen and Christmas, dark Chocolate, Orange, lemon and lime cakes and of course, mini mince pies, served warm. Packages from £35 per person.

    Full vegan afternoon tea packages are also available.

    A CHRISTMAS OF MAGNUMS

    New for this festive season, we will be pouring Champagne from magnums throughout the festive season.

    Known to be superior in taste, magnum Champagne ages better in the bottle due to the size, maturing more slowly and for longer, which in turn enriches the taste. Often seen as the best from a Champagne producer, a magnum pour results in a more complex and harmonious taste, enhancing the Champagne experience for drinkers. Only available as Brut Champagnes, the range will include Lanson Père et Fils, Taittinger Brut Réserve, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and Searcys cuvee.

    A showstopper in size, a magnum adds a touch of theatre to any occasion and an Instagrammable moment for the guests. Double the volume of standard bottle, each bottle pours 12 glasses, making it the perfect accompaniment to a party.
