Tasty treats for a right royal knees up!

Whether you’re joining a street party for the Big Jubilee Lunch on June 5 or hosting your own garden party to celebrate the Queen’s historic milestone, you’ll want a table groaning with all the best food and drink.

Luckily, our fab local suppliers have everything you need for a right Royal knees up – so here’s our guide to all the best products you can find on your patch.

First on the list is always the drink!

Why not pick up a selection of champagne and wines from Titchfield Vineyard? The Festival sparkling white is made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and has the heritage of the Hampshire Solent and the local strawberry growing tradition in its bouquet. You can also pick up Titchfield Vineyard wines and other celebratory tipples at Fareham Wine Cellar.

If you’re looking for something to do…

The Bake Bag in Portchester does a range of popular tray bakes and brownie slabs that are perfect for street parties. Martine is also running an afternoon tea workshop at Boundary Oak School from 10am to 1pm on June 2, where children will learn to make mini cakes, scones and homemade jam.

All ingredients and equipment are provided, and they will have a posh box to take it all home in ready for their Big Jubilee Lunch the next day. You can find out more about The Bake Bag in our blog here!

For masters of the grill…

If your Jubilee celebrations include a barbecue, then don’t miss the famous sausages at The Twells Tradition in Portchester, where you’ll find a staggering range of award-winning flavours, from traditional Old English to the more adventurous duck and hoisin.

BBQ fans will also love Hadlows Family Butchers in Titchfield, where you’ll find a vast range of burgers, sausages, ready-seasoned cuts for the grill, and delicious skewers.

Sheppard’s Family Butchers, which has been at the heart of Stubbington for four decades, can help you fill your grill with a variety of marinated kebabs and sausages, and also makes delicious homemade pies (pictured).

It might be a great British feast, but we’re sure Her Majesty won’t mind if you go a little further afield with the great homemade Tennessee Smokehouse burgers and southern fried chicken breasts at Dave’s Family Butchers in Fareham.

For a stunning centre piece…

A great cheeseboard is also always a showstopper, so grab a stunning graze board from The Bakers at Stubbington groaning with meats, cheese, fruits, pastries and pates will grace any Jubilee table.

For a seasonal favourite…

Every English summer celebration should include strawberries, and you can pick your own or buy punnets from Titchfield family-run farms Hollam Nurseries and Steve Harris PYO.

For fruit and veg fans

You can also order boxes of fresh fruit to be delivered direct to your door from The Fruit Basket Stubbington – why not whip up a classic Eton Mess? – or veg to go with your barbecue food.

Boxxfresh based in Titchfield also delivers fresh veggies, making your Jubilee food shopping even easier!
