Stopsley-born Phyllis Day celebrated her 101st birthday with a slap-up tea at Luton Hoo.
Surrounded by family and friends, she revealed Guinness and butter are the secret for a long healthy life.
She also spent her 100th birthday at the five star venue and enjoyed it so much that her granddaughter laid it on again as a special treat.
General manager Matthew Long said: “We’re honoured that Mrs Day chose to celebrate at the hotel. We look forward to welcoming her back next year.”
