May represents the start of the Queen’s major birthday celebrations. In fact, the extravaganza kicks off tomorrow with a spectacular show that will see many horses, riders & performers congregate at Windsor Castle. Sunday 12th June will mark the climax of these events with a giant street party on The Mall in London. If, like us, you have not made the official guest list then fear not, there are plenty of ways to mark the occasion at Bel & The Dragon.

Taking Afternoon Tea at Bel & The Dragon Windsor, just a stones through away from the castle itself, is a good place to start. Feast on a selection of treats including freshly baked scones, hand-cut sandwiches & a selection of homemade British finger cakes. For the ultimate toast to the Queen, why not add a glass of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne or a Gin & Dubonnet cocktail? The Queen is reputed to enjoy the latter as a preprandial tipple.

How about something for half-term I hear you say? If you have a child aged between 3 – 11 years then head to Bel & The Dragon Reading at 9:30am between Wednesday 1st – Friday 3rd June for a fun introduction to the world of cookery and create a true British classic – Eton Mess with strawberries & cream. 

Of course, no royal celebration would be complete without a party and we will be hosting our very own at Bel & The Dragon Kingsclere on Sunday 12th June. Tuck into a pizza freshly prepared in our new outdoor wood-fired oven whilst sipping on a cocktail and listening to a variety of local bands perform from midday into the evening. Facepainting, ponies, popsicles & ice creams promise something for our younger guests too so bring your family & friends and make a day of it. It will be a party fit for the Queen.
