It’s one of England’s oldest and greatest cocktails, and quite frankly there’s not much that tops it on a summer’s day.

Of course, we’re talking about Pimm’s; a drink that dates back to 1823 from a London oyster bar owner called James Pimm. His initial recipe included gin and a secret number of herbs and liqueurs and was actual used to aid digestion…

However, the modern version is best served long with lemonade, a range of fruit and has become synonymous with the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, where more than 300,000 glasses are drunk each year!

We’re not attempting any world record attempts but are offering a tasty temptation to honour this great beverage and the tennis tournament where it’s most famous.

Throughout the Wimbledon Championships, which will be shown live at the hotel, the Winchester Royal Hotel is offering free strawberries and cream with every jug of Pimm’s and Lemonade.

Available from 1st – 14th July, each jug will cost £12 and will be served in our award-winning Garden Restaurant, lounge and secret garden, weather permitting!

For more information or to book, please call us on 0330 102 7242, or visit us at St Peter Street, Winchester, SO23 8BS.

It’s Pimm’s o’clock.
