Our Wine Suggestions
The Classic Prawn Cocktail
Fresh prawns in a Marie Rose sauce, served on a bed of lettuce leaves.
For this we would suggest a light, crisp, dry white or even a fresh dry Rosé
Pate and toast
Duck, or Ardennes Pate served with wholemeal toast and a festive Chutney
Scottish smoked Salmon, served simply with lemon wedges and garnish.
A dry white wine, or semi sparkling white wine would be perfect for this ever popular starter. The wine needs to be delicate enough to not overpower the subtle fish, but also strong enough to cut through the smokeyness.
Traditional Turkey Roast Dinner
Roast Turkey, Roast Potatoes, Sprouts, Pigs in Blankets, Mashed Carrots, Roast Parsnips, Rich Port Gravy.
Succulent Fillet of Beef, wrapped in Mushrooms and Puff Pastry, served with Roast Potatoes, Celeriac mash and Rich Red Wine gravy.
Festive nut roast
Bold tasting, Vegan friendly option. Nut roast, served with roast potatoes, Christmas spiced red cabbage, honey roast carrots, sprouts with chestnuts and vegetable gravy.
Traditional Christmas Pudding
Luxury Fruitcake with luxurious brandy butter.
For this we suggest either a Sparkling white wine, either sweet or dry, with some acidity to help with the richness of the cream and the boldness of the fruitcake.
Cheese and Biscuits
A selection of strong British Cheeses. Blue Stilton, extra Mature Cheddar, Red Leicester served with Apple, Grapes and Festive Chutney.
A traditional British Favourite dessert. Luxury Jelly, Fruit, sponge and Fresh Cream, with a hint of Sherry or even Brandy.
A dessert white wine is perfect here, to compliment the large mix of flavours going on with this dish, whilst not taking over.
