BaxterStorey has won a catering contract with Winchester Cathedral.
The caterer will launch a new menu "to provide visitors with the very finest quality in locally sourced food and drink".
The cathedral offers spaces for a wedding reception, special occasion
or event including the marquee or Wessex Suite. The Refectory relaunch includes a new corporate and events offering, with bespoke menus tailored for individual requirements.
The breakfast offering at the cathedral will include local herbed sausage and Hampshire heritage tomatoes. Cake offerings include Moss Cake and Lymington strawberry compote to accompany traditional scones. A Summer Pimms Afternoon Tea - consisting of Pimms served with freshly baked cakes, seasonal finger sandwiches, warm scones and locally sourced preserves - will also be served.
Sarah Miller, regional managing director at BaxterStorey, said: "Alongside the seasonal menu at the Cathedral Refectory, our pop-up street food stalls will be located throughout the cathedral grounds, from Jude's ice cream bikes, to a Laverstoke Park Buffalo BBQ, offering a taste of delicious street food-style cooking."
Canon Annabelle Boyes, receiver general at Winchester Cathedral, said: "The new menu, look and feel really reflects the local heritage of our unique location, offering guests a complete and memorable experience. Hospitality has been part of our Benedictine welcome for almost as long as we have been here."
Winchester Cathedral has a rich heritage with its roots in the seventh century, when England's pagan monarchy first became Christians. It is the burial site for many members of the monarchy and also the writer Jane Austen.
