Christmas at The Methuen Arms
At The Methuen, we understand the stress of making plans for Christmas. This year, let us take care of it for you (and your four-legged friends). Whether you’d like a full four days stay, a place for your Christmas party, or a long lunch on Christmas Day, we’re here to make this year extra memorable for all the right reasons.
This year, we’ve put together some festive packages for those of you looking to get away for Christmas or New Years, whilst our kitchen will be serving up a number of different menus to cater for each occassion.
The Methuen Festive Packages
24th – 26th December
Pack your bags, load the car and meet us under the mistletoe!
We’ll put you up in one of our impressive rooms, keep you warm, fed and watered throughout the festive period, and send you home with full bellies, a happy heart and no dishes to do!
On Christmas Eve, you will be greeted with mulled wine, mince pies and carol singers, as well as our usual menu of carefully prepared dishes for dinner.
On Christmas Day, our resident elf will deliver breakfast hampers to your rooms, complete with Bucks Fizz, freshly baked breads, home-made jams and granola.(If you’re very good, there’ll be a treat from Santa for all the family.) A five-course
leisurely lunch will be served in our dining rooms, ending the day with a local cheese board and some traditional cold cuts for the evening.
On Boxing Day, we’ll be serving our regular breakfast menu – anything from a full English breakfast, to granola, fruits, jams and yoghurts for those still full from the day before. For lunch, get away from turkey and all the trimmings and enjoy
an alternative Christmas lunch – a menu full of comfort, with no pigs-in-blankets in sight! In the evening, enjoy a posh Christmas ploughman’s with a nice Sherry in your rooms. We will be closed to the public in the evening – so you can make yourselves truly at home before leaving us the following morning.
31st December – 2nd January
Looking to spend your New Year’s Eve eating and drinking in beautiful surroundings? Our Head Chef Leigh Evans and his talented team of chefs will be cooking up a seven course taster menu to help see out 2017 in style.
There’ll be cocktails on arrival, followed by a celebration of great tasting food and drink to take you into the night, with champagne to finish the feast and bring
in the New Year.
Spend the night and make the short walk upstairs to bed,
before being greeted on New Year’s Day with a full English brunch and a later check out to help the more weary party-goer.
Make it a mini break and stay with us till the following day. Enjoy our famous Methuen roast dinner that afternoon, as well as a Methuen Arms Takeaway for those hungry in the evening! We will be closed to the public in the evening so you will have plenty of space to relax with a digestif after dinner.
