The upcoming festive season is a time to indulge and enjoy great food and spend time with friends and family. So if you’re planning on staying with us this winter, and perhaps bringing along or meeting up with family and friends, we thought we’d reveal the hotspots in the area for festive fun and mouth watering feasts!
Table 22 Christmas Menu
This restaurant is situated down the road at our sister hotel The Regent Hotel. This year Table 22’s Christmas Party menu looks utterly delicious and offers a range of options to suit every palate. Here’s what has caught our eye. The chicken, pistachio and belly pork terrine served with toasted brioche, damson chutney and a dressed salad is a starter sure to whet your appetite!
While the mains section has a variety of delicious warming hearty meals. Our pick would be the red wine braised blade of beef with goose fat roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips, seasonal vegetables and red wine jus. Yummy! And if that isn’t enough, the desserts are to die for, I mean who would say no to a salted caramel tart served with mulled winter berry compote an Madagascan vanilla ice-cream?
