The White Hart, in Ampthill, has extended its meal box service for Easter as the country readies itself for the easing of restrictions.

From Monday (March 29), six people or two households can share time and space, providing they are outside in a private garden.

So, the Dunstable Street pub - owned by The Oakman Group - is extending its meal boxes for Easter with oregano marinated roast lamb or a mushroom wellington and sticky toffee pudding.

The meal boxes have been prepped by The White Hart's chef, with easy-to-follow instructions. You can impress your friends with a restaurant-quality meal and, what’s more, every meal is delivered in sustainable, recyclable packaging.

Ross Pike, Oakman’s chef director, said: “Lamb is the traditional meat for this time of year, and I’ve chosen lamb rump for our Easter feast as it is such a flavoursome cut - yet easy to cook. Of course, an Easter lunch doesn’t have to include meat: there are whole roasted porcini mushrooms at the centre of our mushroom wellington, plus portobellos in a perfect blend of onion, garlic and parsnips.”

He added: “When it comes to dessert, there is sticky toffee pudding, and then there’s our special Oakman recipe sticky toffee pudding. We’ve taken the eggs and flour out and replaced them with sourdough to give a stronger, bigger flavour which works perfectly with the silky toffee sauce.”

On Monday, April 12, (subject to Government restrictions) the White Hart will re-open its garden with a heated open-sided stretch tent for seated food and drinks. Their menu will be available every day from 8am. Customers are encouraged to pre-book on the White Hart's website.
