A Staffordshire hotel and restaurant will be putting the bunting up as it gets set to host five days of celebrations to toast the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The Bridgehouse, based at Stonecross, in Penkridge, has organised a number of events between Friday June 1 and Tuesday June 5 to celebrate the momentous occasion.
Throughout the celebrations The Bridgehouse will be decked in Union Jack bunting and will be hosting a number of events and offering special deals.
On the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee anniversary (Tues June 5) the venue will be hosting a Family Day. This will consist of an all day BBQ with face painting. Children will get a free desert with every kids meal ordered.
On the Friday (June 1) a special steak night will be taking place where diners will be able to enjoy two steaks with trimmings plus a bottle of wine for £22.
On the Saturday The Bridgehouse will be staging an all day BBQ and will be hosting a Curry Night in the evening. Customers will be able to enjoy a starter and a curry with naan bread and papodums for £12.50.
On the Sunday the venue will be serving the traditional proud to be British Sunday Carvery.
An all day BBQ is scheduled for the Monday. The BBQ’s will be staged weather permitting. There will also be an outdoor bar all weekend where people will be able to enjoy the surroundings of The Bridgehouse’s new beer garden. There will also be specials served inside the restaurant for people who don’t fancy fancy a BBQ.
Raj Dhanda, owner of the Bridgehouse, said: “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be a wonderful occasion and we wanted to do something to celebrate the event. The restaurant will be decked out in Union Jack bunting and we will be offering deals for customers and fun activities for the kids. We want people to come and soak up the atmosphere and really enjoy themselves over the five days of celebrations at The Bridgehouse.
“Everyone here is really looking forward to what should be a very enjoyable and memorable few days.”
Raj and his wife Lomi took over The Bridgehouse last year and maintained the same staff including manager Irene Rabone who has worked there for the last 11 years.
All the food is freshly prepared with locally sourced produce and the restaurant can seat up to 80 people.
The Bridgehouse has now revamped its beer garden and will be hosting BBQ nights every Thursday evening.
Customers can have two meals for £10 Monday to Saturday 11am to 6pm and enjoy the Sunday Carvery from £7.95 which is served all day.
