Christmas is back!!!

Once again we have a host of events over the Christmas period to keep you in that festive spirit.

From the end of November you can enjoy a great Christmas meal with us, complete with crackers and hats!! Check out this years menu right here>> Christmas Party Menu 2018

7th December – Thorpeness Village Christmas Party

Open to all of the villagers to get you in the mood for Christmas. Not only is there a three course meal on offer but those that signed up will have their Secret Santa presents delivered… Also, because it’s Christmas, we are hoping that lots of you will come in fancy dress.. an elf, a reindeer, Mary Christmas or even the big man himself..Surprise us!! Village Party Menu

24th December – Christmas Eve Bash

We have become somewhat famed for our bash on Christmas Eve. So why change something if it isn’t broken? The mulled wine will be steaming in the bar, chestnuts will be cracking and the smell of pulled pork will fill the garden as the hog is carved to keep that hunger at bay until the big day. Of course Santa will make time for us in his busy schedule again to dish out some presents to the kids. With carol singing from 6pm too there’s plenty to keep you busy.

25th December – Christmas Day

We are now taking bookings for the big day!! We do fill up very quickly though – usually by the end of August!! This years menu has been kept the same great price as last year.. Christmas Day Menu 2018 – Vegetarian Christmas Day Menu

26th December – Boxing Day

We are open for lunch today to help fill that hole that you might have after Christmas. Who actually is hungry on Boxing Day? We eat because it’s Christmas and it’s what we have to do of course!! Maybe just a sloe gin at the bar to warm the cockles after a bracing Boxing Day walk

31st December – New Years Eve

Our theme this year is “Blitz Party”. See in 2019 (that’s right, 2019!!) with a menu from back in time so expect to see some favourites. Dig out your army uniforms and dress to impress. Our fantastic band will having you dancing to see in the New Year. Check out this years menu>> New Years Eve Menu 2018
