About

This year our picnics will be provided by Fortnum & Mason for the very first time. A fixture in Piccadilly since 1707, Fortnum’s is renowned for its extraordinary food, famous teas, and iconic wicker hampers. You just might say they are the experts in al fresco dining. Crafted with the very best seasonal ingredients fresh from Fortnum’s famous Food Halls, and packed with summer-ready tipples, all picnics are perfectly prepared for two and will be available to pre-order for our guests to collect from the Fortnum’s Giant Hamper in the grounds of Goodwoof. The Fortnum’s Picnic and The Fortnum’s Garden Picnic (v), £125, consist of a starter, main, cheese plate, pudding, and bottle of wine, served inside a Fortnum’s Cool Bag. Suitable for two people, The Fortnum’s Feast and The Fortnum’s Garden Feast (v), £195, follow the same four-course format but are a rather more decadent affair with more indulgent foods, wine and additions such as a Scotch Egg, of their own making in 1738, all housed within their iconic Huntsman Hamper. If you prefer your picnic on the fizzier side, you can upgrade your wine to our delicious Fortnum’s Brut Reserve Champagne for a £35 supplement. Fortnum’s penchant for picnics began in the 18th century, when the then-fledgling company began to supply hunters and travellers with baskets of provisions for their journeys. Not long after, picnics became highly fashionable in London and the English countryside beyond, with Fortnum’s favoured everywhere from Ascot to Henley, Wimbledon to Twickenham. Fortnum’s encourages Joyful Living, and what could be more joyous than reclining on a lawn at Goodwood feasting on one of their famous picnics.
