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 2019 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 meal or take part in one of our Christmas Party Nights.
Our festive Christmas evening dining (Mistletoe Menu) provides a plentiful festive meal with all the trimmings in the run-up to Christmas and is most suited to those dining in the evening. Should you require lunchtime Christmas dining, our Holly Menu would be more suitable. Christmas evening dinner can be served in our Library, Dining Room and Restaurant or in the spacious Ballroom if you are arranging a larger Christmas gathering or attending one of our Christmas party events. 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 ion 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 2019 and hope to see you at one (or more) of our carefully selected dining experiences or evenings of Christmas Party entertainment.
2 courses - £33.00 - choose from starter and main, or main and dessert (plus tea/coffee)
