Warm and welcoming to guests of all ages, The Duke of Richmond takes the needs of its younger visitors very seriously. Whilst parents enjoy the luxuriously-appointed rooms and choice of excellent bars and restaurants, children can take advantage of their own guest services team who will make sure that they have everything they need. Alongside their own menu Afternoon Tea and a Little Princes and Princesses turndown, kids can also spend time decorating a cupcake with Chef. The Duke of Richmond’s cupcake-decorating masterclass means that kids can enjoy all the fun of getting creative in the kitchen, without parents having to clean up the mess.
This fun and tasty activity is part of the hotels’ guest experience for families and is available on a complimentary basis. Simply register your interest when checking in and one of the team will happily arrange a suitable time. When your little cook is ready to get decorating, a table with be set up in the Residents’ Lounge, equipped with plain cupcakes, sprinkles and multi-coloured icing. Each aspiring cook is given a chef’s hat specially prepared for him or her and then, under the guidance of one of the Duke of Richmond’s team members, kids can get to work decorating their cupcakes.
Once the cupcakes are complete, they are photographed with their creations and also given an Art of Pastry completion certificate. Little guests can then proudly show off their certificates and cupcakes to their parents, although we can’t guarantee that the cupcakes will last that long! A truly memorable experience for younger guests, a cupcake-decorating masterclass combines the things children enjoy most; being creative (and a little messy) and plenty of delicious cake.
In addition to that, if children are hungry for more, treat them to The Duke of Richmond’s Prince and Princess Afternoon Tea. This includes a lip smacking selection of homemade cakes, including a popcorn cup cake and banana and chocolate tart, plain scones and a tasty assortment of sandwiches, with fillings such as ham, cheese and strawberry and jam. What’s more, the children’s menu available in the restaurant and bar promises to make mealtimes as enjoyable as possible for everyone. Young diners can feast on starters of soup or prawn cocktail, followed by crowd pleasing mains of sausage and mash, beef burger and chips or pasta with tomato sauce, all of which are served with seasonal vegetables.
