Festive lunches

During December, we are offering festive lunches of seasonal fayre, freshly prepared on the premises, for customers who would like to enjoy a leisurely three course lunch including coffee for only £27.00 or £22.00 for two courses.

Christmas Day lunch

On Christmas Day, let someone else do the hard work! We offer a superb four-course lunch including table decorations, coffee and truffles for £75.00 (£45.00 for children under 13). We can only accept booking for 6 guests (can be mixed households) or one houshold (including support bubble) of any size.

An Alternative to Crackers

Every year we spend about £600 on crackers, most of which goes straight in the bin after 30 seconds of fun, contributing to a lot of waste including plastic!

So we have decided to use the money instead to donate £300 for the Northampton Hope Centre and the other £300 will be offered as John Lewis Gift Cards in a free prize draw available to all our Christmas Dinner, Christmas Day Lunch and Party Night guests.

The Northampton Hope Centre is a charity devoted to helping homeless and socially excluded people by providing for basic needs as well as activities aimed at helping to get their lives back on track.
