It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….

Like it or not, once Bonfire Night is behind us, and John Lewis releases its Christmas ad, the festivities are just around the corner….

If you’re still in denial, ignore this post and come back to it when December dawns. But for those who like to plan ahead, here’s a breakdown of what’s going on over the season.

Christmas Fayre:

Tuesday 5th December, 4.30pm – 8pm. Come and browse festive gifts, arts and crafts, and enjoy free mulled Grumpy Frog cider.

Christmas parties:

We have a party menu for 1st – 23rd December. It’s a set price of £26.50 for three courses, or there’s a two course option at lunch time for £22.50. All diners eat the same choice, ordered in advance. While this is a great option for large gatherings, there is no minimum or maximum size party.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

Christmas lunch for non-residents is fully booked, but we still have rooms available (two nights minimum stay), with lunch included in the price.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at midday onwards is always a convivial gathering of locals and residents alike.

New Year

We still have a few tables available for dinner and dancing. £55 / head, canapes, main course, dessert, glass of fizz, and a DJ from 9.30pm. Carriages 1pm.

Rooms still available (two nights minimum stay), with dinner included in the price.
