Christmas - daytime dining

Lunchtime dining in our Restaurant, Festive Afternoon Tea or Lunch with the family - the perfect way to get away from the pre-Christmas rush

Christmas Lunch (Holly Menu)

Christmas is a time to catch up with family and friends or get together socially with work colleagues.   If you’re already starting to think about Christmas 2018 then we are all set and ready to help you plan that get-together. Our comfortable surroundings, hearty festive menus and welcoming team create the perfect setting for a quiet, relaxing drink or a Christmas celebration with loved ones.

Our festive Christmas lunch (Holly Menu) provides a plentiful festive meal with all the trimmings in the run-up to Christmas and is most suited to those dining at lunchtime.  Should you require evening Christmas dining, our Mistletoe Menu would be more suitable.  Christmas lunch can be served in our Library, Dining Room and Restaurant or in the spacious Ballroom if you are arranging a larger Christmas gathering.  We are closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day to allow our team to spend quality time with family after a very busy few weeks leading up to Christmas.

Festive Afternoon Tea an alternative option but this is only offered on set days in the lead up to Christmas. Both our Festive Tea and Family Lunch include plenty of seasonal entertainment to keep you occupied while you enjoy our sumptuous array of lovingly prepared dishes or sweet delights.  We have another full Christmas Calendar for 2018 and hope to see you at one (or more) of our carefully selected dining experiences or evenings of Christmas Party entertainment.

Dining in Clarkes Restaurant  -  Holly Menu (£32.50 per person)
For lunch-time dining, we are offering our Holly Christmas Menu from Friday 23rd November until Saturday 22nd December 2018.  This is offered in our Clarkes restaurant for smaller parties or in our Library for private parties up to 20 guests.   We close Clarkes Restaurant on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.


Christmas Family Lunch  (£47.50 per person)
This is the perfect opportunity to get the family together for a pre-Christmas lunch with a difference.  As well as Christmas lunch, we have arranged a magician and school choir to entertain.  There will also be a visit from Santa with a gift for the children. Our photographer will also be on hand to capture the day with a family print.  This will be held on:

  • Sunday 16th  December 2018


Festive Afternoon Tea (£30.00 per person)
One of our most popular Christmas events, our Festive Afternoon Tea is a real treat. Held in our festively decorated Ballroom, as well as some fantastic savouries and sweet treats, you will be entertained with magic and be able to sing-along with songs from a local Primary School Choir.  You will also be able to take away a photograph of the occasion when you leave. This event starts at 2.30pm on:

  • Sunday 2nd December 2018
