Happy 90th Birthday, Your Majesty!

Ockenden Manor and Ridgeview Estate toast HM The Queen’s 90th birthday with a Michelin starred pop-up among the vines
In celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, two West Sussex secrets are coming together to host an exclusive lunch party on Sunday 12 June; Ockenden Manor’s Michelin starred dishes will combine with plenty of Sussex sparkling wine to create a pop-up amid the vines on the Ridgeview Estate.

Producers of award-winning English sparkling wine, Ridgeview Estate is set at the foot of the South Downs just a few miles from Ockenden Manor. The estate’s sparkling wines are well-known by Her Majesty; in October 2015, the Grosvenor Blanc de Blancs 2009 was served at the state banquet held at Buckingham Palace as part of the state visit by Chinese Premier Xi Jingping.
The rolling vineyards of Ridgeview will be the perfect setting for a lunch to remember. Stepping out from the Restaurant at Ockenden Manor, which has held a Michelin star for thirteen years, Head Chef Stephen Crane and his team will craft a one-off lunch – a modern take on a medieval style banquet.
Guests will take their seats at long tables brimming with flowers and bunting for a three course feast, cooked live on the vineyard and each matched to a different Ridgeview sparkling wine. This is Ockenden Manor and Ridgeview’s take on the great British street party; guests can expect a series of scrumptious dishes and plenty of fizz – the perfect way in which to raise a glass to Her Majesty’s big day.
Tickets are £125 per person for a three course lunch with matching sparkling wines. From 12.30pm, adults only.
