British Sandwich Week

It's British Sandwich Week from the 20th - 26th May and to celebrate the humble sandwich in all its glory, we are sharing recipes for some of the sandwiches you can enjoy at our hotels.

Club Sandwich

Available at most hotels including Broome Park Hotel, Kent


4 rashers streaky bacon
3 slices white bread
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 hard-boiled egg, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
few thick slices chicken or turkey breast
small handful salad leaves
handful crisps, to serve, if you like


Heat the grill to High and cook the bacon, turning halfway through, until crisp. Toast the bread and spread one slice with the mayo.

Layer on the egg, tomato and bacon, then top with another slice of bread. Add the chicken or turkey, bacon, then lettuce. Finish with the final slice of bread and cut into quarters. Secure with cocktail sticks and serve with crisps, if you like.

King Prawn, Cucumber & Lime Mayo

½ x brown baguette, fresh or part-baked

2.5cm cucumber, thinly sliced
75g cooked and peeled king prawns (or smaller shrimp-style prawns)
1 level-tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
A squeeze of fresh lime
Freshly ground black pepper (optional)


If using part-baked baguette, cook as per instructions. Allow to cool before using. Cut the baguette in half before slicing lengthways to form two sandwiches.

Cover one side of the baguette with a thin layer of spread. Top with the lettuce and cucumber. Mix the mayonnaise with a squeeze of lime and add the prawns and mix together. Spoon evenly into the baguette and serve.
