Our Christmas Menu this year features butter-basted turkey with all the trimmings, pavé of beef with potato rostis and a Roquefort sauce, a very special Gressingham duck breast, and a layered cashew nut and mushroom roast. You can also spoil yourself with our delicious desserts, including traditional Christmas pudding and brandy sauce; individual apple, date and cinnamon crumbles with chantilly cream; or go for the classic tiramisu…
