Jubilee fare included patriotic cupcakes served on a silver plated cakestand with matching teapot dating back to the zoo’s opening in 1937. Mr Suddock said:?”The tea service is one of dozens that were in use in the restaurants across the site during those early years. “They may look good but it takes forever to polish them!”
