There are over 100 items to choose from, and highlights include Oven Baked Rock Salt Sea Bass, Roasted Tom Christmas Turkey with traditional stuffing of chestnuts and fruits, and a whole Roasted Lamb. We particularly enjoyed the chestnut stuffing and giblet gravy – who can resist this special dish so rarely seen the rest of the year!
There is a luscious array of Yuletide treats including sinful Christmas pudding, delicious cakes and mince pies. The Chocolate Yule Log was particularly delicious, with its moist cake and thick, fudgy frosting. And while we are not normally fans of fruitcake, we did really enjoy the fruitcake at this buffet with its dense yellow cake and a generous smattering of dried fruits and nuts.
