BBQ Favorites

Regent’s unveiled its all new summer BBQ packages earlier this year which went down a storm.  The new Chicken Shack menu (butterfly chickens with a choice of marinades (piri-piri, lemon thyme and garlic or harissa spicing) was a hit with clients across the board as was our Marbella Paella  (roasted vegetable, butter beans and saffron rice.) Our take on BBQ classics were also very popular. Guests couldn’t get enough of our 100% beef burgers, bratwurst sausages with brioche rolls served with melted onions and sauerkraut and halloumi, pepper and courgette skewers with Brazilian salsa.
