Wild Idol is in full bloom this week to celebrate the return of the world’s most impressive flower show which is back for its annual celebration of horticulture. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show takes place in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, where it has showcased the haute-couture of international gardening for more than 100 years.
Officially marking the start of summer, Chelsea Flower Show is a highlight in the London social calendar. As well as enjoying the blooms and blossoms, it’s also a perfect opportunity to enjoy fine dining and drinking in and around the show. With its delicate floral aromas and notes of red fruit, soak up the atmosphere with a glass of Wild Idol’s alcohol free sparkling rosé at one of these local spots.
No. Fifty Cheyne
No. Fifty Cheyne is a classic English restaurant in the heart of Chelsea, with intimate dining and an elegant flair. Head Chef Iain Smith creates his menus around the finest British produce and their award-winning Sunday lunch has long-been the talk of the town.
Book a table or prop up the bar for a Wild afternoon.
The Surprise is the local we all wish we had. Warm, welcoming, with rustic-chic decor and a country-pub feel despite being just moments from the Kings Road. It’s been a neighbourhood pub and local landmark since 1853. The menu boasts simple dishes, locally sourced, and on special this Chelsea Flower Show week is “The Chelsea Flourish” - a bespoke non alcoholic cocktail made with Wild Idol and celebrating all things floral.
