Christmas Lunch a la Corrs Hotel style

The BFM and lunch buddy decided to have our annual Christmas lunch at Corrs Hotel Restaurant today.

I have been here before on numerous occasions but never for Christmas lunch.

It was a toss up between the actual Christmas Lunch package which was three courses for £17.95, coffees and drinks on top, or the Grill a la carte. Check the website for menus.

We both opted for the prawn and dressed lobster with salad and wheaten and a dash of Tabasco. The portion size was fantastic. Then for mains we had the turkey and ham, which was cooked and presented very well and came out fairly soon after starters. The meat was tender and succulent, stuffing was delicious as were the roasties,mash,carrots and cauliflower Mornay. There were, maybe a tad many sprouts. Notable absentees were pigs in blankets and parsnips. Extremely tasty gravy finished off a fine festive feast. For desert I had a Christmas pudding,heated with brandy cream and cream and washed down with water,a small glass of Jack Rabbit Chilean Shiraz and ending with coffee.

We managed to get a cracker each!! The place was geared up for a busy day and night. I’m glad we had our turkey dinner. The service was exceptional, my only suggestion would be to take bit more time between courses as they can tend to be rushed.

Great place for a meal,drink or both.
