Our Top Picnic Tips

Picnic

You can’t beat a picnic on a good day in the British countryside. Here are our top tips for the perfect picnic.

Prepare ahead

Get everything ready to serve before you go, favourites like pork pies and our famous scotch eggs travel really well. Pick up ready-made sides in tubs then you just need to pack plates and cutlery.

Stay cool

Some things (including Prosecco) are best kept cold. It might go without saying but make sure you pack in a cool bag with ice blocks.

Salads in jars

Make up a simple salad in a glass jar with the dressing in a separate jar. It avoids any squashing or wilting in plastic bags.

Crisps

Easy to transport and add crunch. Roll down the top of the bag to make a self standing crisp bowl.

Pudding

Cake travels pretty well and is easy to slice (and eat!) – our bakery has some classics ready for you to pack.
