England will be a land of celebration and festivity this summer as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games bring the nation together.

On the banks of the Thames, overlooking iconic Tower Bridge, Butler’s Wharf Chop House will join the party with a season of traditionally English celebrations.

It launched its English country garden-inspired summer terrace by the river last month and visitors can look forward to a whole host of foodie events and activities in a picture-postcard setting – all green lawns, picket fences and pretty, edible flowers.

The restaurant will have a lawn garden inside the bar and across the entire terrace, where maypole dancing and Morris dancers will add to the vintage feel.

The food and wine is entirely in keeping with this quaint rural idyll in the heart of the city, with a special menu of Ploughman’s, English wines and food and beer.

There will also be riverside renditions of Shakespeare’s finest works, the launch of the Chop House Supper Club and canapé picnics. The garden will be one of the focal points on the River Thames the entire summer, and especially during the Olympic Games and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations when the river will be given over to the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the afternoon of Sunday, June 3.

Joining Butler’s Wharf Chop House in the celebrations will be its Shad Thames neighbours, Cantina del Ponte, Le Pont de la Tour and Blueprint Café.

The four restaurants will be turning their stretch of the Thames into a riverside festival, where Londoners and visitors to the city can enjoy the 2012 festivities and what will hopefully be a glorious English summer.
