Christmas Lunch 2017 – Venue Selection

Kelvin Probus Christmas Meal  19th December, 2017     Venue Selection               


The opportunity has been taken of making contact with three potential caterers for our traditional Christmas lunch.  All have kept this date available for us.

The remit to each of those involved was specific in that we wished a three course festive lunch (with alternatives for each course) followed by tea or of coffee plus mince pie.  One glass of red or white wine or soft drink to be made available at a reception, with a further at a specific time during the meal (eg after the first course).

The undernoted notes provide the like for like comparison.   In each instance a 10% service charge has been added to the price quoted to cover service.  All meals would be pre-ordered.  In each instance the turkey to be carved (not bought in pre-sliced) with traditional trimmings and gravy, cranberry and bread sauce on the side.
