Anyone for chicken? Sutton Hoo Chickens are being served at Wimbledon again this year.
We are so delighted to announce that we will be supplying the official caterers of The Championships, Wimbledon with our delicious Sutton Hoo Chicken for the fifth year running!
Sutton Hoo Chicken are listed on the official Wimbledon website in 'Our Ingredients' section alongside some of the very best food and drink producers in Britain and can be found online here.
We have always been proud of our high quality and original ethos of free range, and truly believe that a slower grown, naturally maturing chicken develops a fuller and more succulent flavour. The chickens roam freely over 40 acres of Suffolk meadows, where they are free to peck, graze and engage in their natural behaviours.
As many regular visitors know, Wimbledon is not just a celebration of tennis, but also an event that parades the very best of British produce. Whether you’re looking for a light bite or a leisurely lunch between matches, Wimbledon offers plenty of options that are high quality, seasonal, sustainable, and responsibly sourced. Sutton Hoo Chicken will be available in The Baseline and The Walled Food Market as well as in the VIP area at The Championships, Wimbledon 2019.
Executive Chef Rob Kennedy has mentioned us in a brilliant video about the British food at Wimbledon, saying:
“If you are coming to Wimbledon this year and you wanted a great dish, for summer, for quality, for provenance, for British, I would choose the Sutton Hoo Chicken. It’s succulent, it’s delicious and it eats well with anything, particularly our English asparagus.”
