Carringtons Catering has given Her Majesty The Queen the royal treatment at a lunch in Liverpool Town Hall.

On June 22, Her Majesty and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh visited Liverpool Town Hall for a formal Reception Lunch, courtesy of the Roby Mill based independent catering business.

Following her recent 90th birthday celebrations, Her Majesty was visiting the International Festival for Business 2016 and formally opening the Exhibition Centre Liverpool and Pullman Liverpool. This was followed by lunch in Liverpool Town Hall and thereafter, the ‘official opening’ of the new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Director of Carringtons Catering and Masterchef of Great Britain Darren Wynn said: “The team and I are so proud to have hosted a lunch at Liverpool Town Hall that saw both Her Majesty and His Royal Highness in attendance. What better venue to host the occasion than in Liverpool Town Hall, where there is even a portrait of the Queen by Sir Edward Halliday hanging above the main staircase.

“Although we have catered to a number of high calibre figures in the past including Royals, catering for Her Majesty is certainly a most honourable experience for us and we are thrilled to say that the lunch was thoroughly enjoyed.”

The exclusive lunch was adapted from the design used for the banquet in Liverpool Town Hall for Queen Victoria on Tuesday, May 11 1886. The meal comprised a main course of Fillet of Mawdesley Beef served with Peppercorn and Cognac Sauce, Asparagus and Gratin Dauphinois. For dessert, guests were treated to Apple Tart with English Custard and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream followed by Petit Fours.
