Christmas Lunch at The Grange

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.

Quote Mark Mary Ellen Chase

Please note, we are now fully booked for Christmas Lunch.  We will be taking bookings for Christmas 2016 from the 1st January 2016.

Why not take the pressure off the cook this year and treat your family to Christmas Day lunch at The Grange? A glass of champagne and canapés in the lounge, a delicious traditional Christmas lunch, followed by coffee and mince pies. Children's menus are also available and include a gift from Father Christmas! Christmas Day lunch is served from 12.00 until 2.00 pm and we are open to non-residents.
