Carvery lunches take off at Butchers’ Hall
One of the great traditions at Butchers’ Hall in London is the regular carvery lunches that have been hugely popular over many years.
As with all aspects of hospitality during lockdown, the lunches were a casualty, but the Worshipful Company of Butchers is reporting a marked uplift in attendance over recent times.
Margaret Boanas, Master of the Worshipful Company of Butchers, welcomed a record number of diners to the traditional Butchers’ Hall Carvery Lunch on Wednesday 15th June.
Over a hundred members of the general public and Liverymen, together with their guests from a wide range of Livery companies, gathered to enjoy the three course meal.
The famous Butchers’ Hall Roast Beef, matured in the time-honoured way, on the bone for a minimum of 28 days, was the star attraction, while many guests commended the splendid cheese plate.
The splendour of the Great Hall, featuring the famous Vesty Tapestry, provides an historic setting for the lunch with the regulars attending, along with many first-time visitors to Butchers’ Hall, who revel in the beautiful surroundings and unique atmosphere, often enjoyed as much as the lunch itself.
The Master commented: “We’re thrilled that so many visitors, old and new, are able to experience our wonderful facilities as well as enjoying a great lunch at Butchers’ Hall. We look forward to seeing many more new faces at our future lunches.”
