Christmas Day Dinner ~ Available 7 – 9.30pm
Instead of a Christmas lunch we provide Christmas dinner; over the years this has proved very popular with our customers and with the cosy warm interior and the cold dark evenings outside it creates a splendid ambience.
Our four course dinner is followed by coffee and petit fours, live piano accompaniment fills the restaurant and there is a choice of delights to tempt any palate including local turkey, freshly caught fish and our Penventon signature Christmas pudding served with a generous helping of our finest brandy sauce.
Why not enjoy Christmas without the hassle of the food preparation and the dishes? Come to ours and enjoy a glass of bubbly and really put your feet up. That is what Christmas is about, a well earned rest.
