Pol Roger Dinner, Churchill War Rooms
We would be delighted if you could join us for an evening with a difference at The Churchill War Rooms; the preserved historic site underneath Westminster, where Winston Churchill and his War Cabinet led Britain and her allies to victory during the World War II.
Against a backdrop of historical material, this once secret underground war time headquarters is a fabulous setting for our November dinner, whilst trying a flight of Rol Roger Champagnes, one of Winston Churchill’s favourit tipples.
We will start with a Champagne reception, and you can tour the historic Churchill War Rooms experiencing what it was like to work beneath the heart of Westminster during the Blitz. Walk in Churchill’s footsteps through the atmospheric corridors and learn about the big decisions made in this iconic site.
This will be followed by a three course set dinner menu in the iconic Harmsworth Room which incorporates the 1940’s electric generator wall featuring L.E.D’s, switches and dials, creating a stunning backdrop for our evening. Steeped in the atmosphere of a wartime bunker, but with all the comforts of a modern venue, we will dine with the accompaniment of suitable music.
We will be joined by James Simpson who is an Master of Wine and the oracle on all things Pol Roger and Churchill. James is the MD of Pol Roger UK Ltd which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and will talk us through the flight of Pol Roger and regale us with some interesting stories.
Sir Winston Churchill has a love affair with Pol Roger which is a thing of wine legend. Churchill is reputed to have drunk 42,000 bottles of Pol Roger in his life and he only discovered it aged 34. It seems appropriate therefore to drink this womderful champagne in this iconic place.
We are currently finalising the details of this event, and the costs. Your ticket will include a tour of the museum, the champagne reception, a 3 course dinner with different Pol Roger champagnes throughout, matched to the various courses.
Sip a glass or 2 of Pol Roger Brut Reserve as you wander around the museum and during our reception. We will serve Pol Roger Pure or Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2013 (Churchill drank vintage Pol Roger!) -with the starter course. The main will be accompanied by Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2009 en Magnum. And with Pudding, a glass of Pol Roger Rich Demi-Sec is a lovely finale.
Costs to include tour of the War Rooms and Museum, Champagne reception, 3 course dinner accompanied by Pol Roger champagnes £190 per person including VAT
