Flat Cap Hotels, a Cheshire-based collection of bespoke heritage hotels, will be supporting Polo Day on Sunday 23 June, a Hospitality Action charity which offers a crucial lifeline to people from the hospitality industry.
Led by Flat Cap Hotels Executive Chef Steven Tuke, North West chefs like Simon Shaw, Patron Chef of Manchester’s El Gato Negro, Aiden Byrne of restaurant MCR and Kevin Lynn, chef and owner of Machine House will be whipping up an impressive Afternoon Tea at the Cheshire Polo Club.
Hospitality Action is a registered charity which supports working or retired trade workers in the North West and spent over £70,000 in 2018 to help those in need and has been doing so for 180 years. Polo Day is one of its popular fundraising events with stylish gin and tonics and canapes on the lawn before Tuke’s Afternoon Tea which will feature an indulgent chocolate and toffee popcorn dome, peanut butter and jelly tart and a Victoria sponge opera cake.
There will also be a raffle draw and one of the prizes is an overnight stay at one of Flat Cap Hotels’ suites with a bed and breakfast in its Grade II listed venues.
The Flat Cap locations include The Courthouse in Knutsford, The Vicarage in Holmes Chapel and The Bridge in Prestbury. The hotels are comprised of restored venues, all of historical significance, transformed into gastro-led luxury hotels – the conception of brothers Oliver and Dominc Heywood. Steven Tuke champions locally sourced British produce to accompany season menus with an experienced team behind him.
