ith the Autumn Internationals back and in full swing, England kicked off the series with their match against Argentina. Of course, we were back at the home of England Rugby ready to open the doors to The Green Room once again.
It wouldn't be The Green Room without a Champagne and drinks reception, and that is exactly what our guests were treated to upon arrival, before taking to their seats to enjoy the day's entertainment. A sumptuous four-course meal was served including:
- Cured English ham, tomato mousse, olive soil and heritage tomatoes
- Rack of English lamb, potato puree, roasted young leek, tender stem and cherry puree
- Blackberry vanilla torte, red fruit compote, vanilla cream
The highlight of The Green Room is certainly our panel of guests and host Mark Durden-Smith, first up was a Q&A with the legendary Rugby World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward. Following this was our panel of Rugby experts David Flatman, Austin Healey and Hospitality Finder ambassadors Lawrence Dallaglio and Mike Tindall. But it is not just rugby legends that we see in The Green Room, it is also a star-studded place to be with guest appearances at this game including Darren Gough, Andrew Ridgley and Simon Le Bon.
Once lunch had been served guests made their way down to their official category A match ticket to enjoy the game. Eddie Jones' men were on form and managed to replicate their success the last time these two Rugby giants met in the 2016 Autumns, England came away with a 21-8 victory.
Back in The Green Room guests were treated to more food and drink with a post-match Twickenham tea, that consisted of:
- Steak and ale pie
- Spinach, mushroom and ricotta pie
- Roasted beef, caramelised shallot, spinach and
Roquefort roasted sandwich
- Bakewell tart
Our panellists were back on stage to give their review of the match and to entertain the audience with more stories from their Rugby days. Following this was special guest and England player Anthony Watson, fresh from the pitch to give his review of the game. Watson also picked our two lucky winners from the prize draw, who won two VIP tickets to the Cheltenham Festival and England v India at the Kia Oval.
You can be part of The Green Room in 2018 when it returns to Twickenham for the Six Nations
. We will also be taking it to the Cheltenham Festival
with our Cheltenham ambassador Sir AP McCoy and to the Kia Oval
