We love Christmas!

Great food enjoyed with friends and family. It’s never too early to start celebrating so to get us in the mood our decorations are all up by 1st November this year.

Our gold trees are environmentally friendly and recycled annually. We spruce them up from the 1st of December with holly and ivy straight from our Contini Kitchen Garden.

Fresh fine branches are added to give that extra Christmas feel.
