HOSPITALITY AT GUARDS POLO CLUB Dear guests, Welcome to the esteemed hospitality of the Guards Polo Club, proudly presented by Searcys Events. We are honoured to be a partner with your historic and globally celebrated club. At the core of every Searcys dish lies a touch of indulgence and finesse. Our hospitality menus have been meticulously crafted, featuring Searcys signature classics that showcase the brilliance of seasonal ingredients. These culinary delights have been thoughtfully paired with our extensive Champagne and wine lists. This year, we’re thrilled to announce our collaboration with renowned Irish chef Richard Corrigan. Richard is the Chef Patron of critically acclaimed London restaurants such as Bentley’s Oyster Bar in Piccadilly and Corrigan’s Mayfair, and more recently, The Portrait Restaurant with Searcys on top of the National Portrait Gallery. His philosophy, “Let the food and the seasons do the talking,” shines through in the menus he’s crafted for the Guards Polo’s 2024 season. With a legacy spanning over 175 years in London’s hospitality scene, Searcys traces its roots back to the visionary John Searcy, who founded the company in 1847. A true creative and culinary force, John embarked on his illustrious career as the confectioner for the Duke of Northumberland before establishing the go-to events company in the capital. Over the years, we have had the privilege of catering to numerous extraordinary moments, from grand banquets and royal weddings to balls and coronations. Searcys guests can relish in the historical ambiance of The Pump Room in Bath, elevate their dining experience at the Gherkin in the City, immerse themselves in culture at the Barbican, or enjoy bubbly at Europe’s longest Champagne bar at St Pancras International, and our newest addition, the Champagne Bar at Battersea Power Station. Together with our exceptionally skilled chefs and dedicated front-of-house team, we look forward to welcoming you and ensuring your experience is nothing short of extraordinary this season.
