If you are looking for opulence this coming festive season then our five-course Christmas Feast Menu is sure to please. Guests can taste & share a variety of our most favourite dishes that have been carefully prepared by our talented team of chefs from £80. Savour such delights as our Local Roast Turkey, Half Grilled Atlantic Lobster & Chateaubriand of Beef, complemented well by the strong tannins of the Château Chasse-Spleen 2005. Alternatively, select your own wine from our extensive cellar list and complete your very own feast.


Sure, the turkey will take centre stage. However, our Cauliflower with Smashed Garlic & Pecorino Cheese offers a deliciously indulgent, gloriously golden, all important side. What’s more, it has Christmas written all over it. Why not try our recipe at home…

Serves 4-6

  • 1 Large Cauliflower
  • 15g Gluten-Free Flour
  • 15g Butter
  • 300ml Milk
  • 100g Cheddar
  • 3 tbsp Freshly Grated Pecorino Cheese
  • 3 tsp Mustard
  • 1 Garlic Bulb

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Peel the garlic and roast in the centre of the oven. Remove and cool before peeling the skin and chopping roughly with a knife.

Next, melt the butter in a pot and stir in the flour for a minute to make a paste, then gradually add the milk, whisking as you go, until lovely and smooth. Once the milk has been fully incorporated, cook gently for a further 15 minutes. Add the grated cheese, mustard and season to taste.

Place the cauliflower florets in a large pot of boiling water and simmer until tender but slightly crunchy. Quickly transfer the cauliflower to a pot of ice water to prevent further cooking then drain and dry.

To assemble, mix the cauliflower roasted garlic & cheese sauce then transfer to an oven-proof dish. Grate pecorino cheese on top and bake until golden & bubbly. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and enjoy.
