The Glorious Twelfth: Game On at Wiltons

Lovers of that most British institution, the Glorious twelfth need look no further than Wiltons for a feast of fresh grouse. The iconic, London restaurant that is older than America celebrates its 275th anniversary in 2017. Wiltons, a quintessentially British classic and the creation of George William Wilton, was first established in St James’s in 1742 as a stall, selling oysters, shrimps and cockles.

Now equally well known for their game, Wiltons is owned by the Hambro family and located on Jermyn Street, in the heart of St James’s, Wiltons combines a modern philosophy of service with all that is traditionally British, creating the perfect dining experience. This Saturday 12th of August, Wiltons will celebrate the Glorious Twelfth and will be having grouse from North Yorkshire delivered within 12 hours of it being shot, with the first one being served within 30 minutes of its arrival. Wiltons will be serving the grouse classically, as they always do at the beginning of the season, as the birds are only 3 to 4 months old and are still nice and tender. Simply roasted with some herbs and then served with brioche breadcrumbs, bread sauce, game crisps and a grouse jus, crisp bacon and watercress.

As well as this, Wiltons will have available three double magnums of Margaux Château Labégorce Zédé 2005 to pair with the grouse, served by the glass, at the table for only £28 per 175ml. How very luxurious, how very British… Chin chin.
