Houses of Parliament sauce?

I was tucking into my bacon roll this morning I was struck by the unusual flavour of HP Sauce and wondered what the HP stood for…yes I clearly have too much time on my hands around lunchtime!

Well HP actually stands for Houses of Parliament…no apparently it does!!!

Back in 1895 Frederick Gibson Garton had developed a tasty brown sauce which was apparently selling rather well, so well that a restaurant in the Houses of Parliament had begun serving it.

I took a look at bottle in my kitchen and sure enough there is an image of the Houses of Parliament!
