It’s that plan-your-Christmas-party time of year

Join us this December and enjoy the festive season from your favourite local. Choose from our festive feast or sharing boards (whatever tickles your fancy), we’ve got it wrapped.

We’ll be rolling out the roasts, stoking the fire and mulling wine, and with our stretch tents, heated garden huts and festive light displays, we’ve brought the inside outside!

If you’re dreaming of a stress-free Christmas Day where you can hang up your apron and savour the moment, look no further. Our talented chefs will be hard at work crafting a traditional Christmas Day feast for you to enjoy. Indulge in a crown of turkey, honey-glazed gammon, or opt for one of our delectable vegetarian or vegan roast alternatives. Each dish is accompanied by golden roast potatoes, generous helpings of gravy, and seasonal veggies to make your day truly special leaving you stuffed full until next year (where we’ll do it all again).

Celebrate with us this Christmas.

With that pop-another-prosecco time of year nearly here, it’s the perfect time to tell you about just one of the exciting things we’ve been working on behind the cellar doors this winter.

In 2023 we pledged to a little something extra and to celebrate every
new Christmas tree bringing the festive cheer to our pubs, we partnered with our pals at Ecologi,  to plant a replacement right here in the UK 🎄

Across the Scotland, England and Wales, The Future Forest Company, Protect Earth and International Tree Foundation will be planting native, diverse and ecologically appropriate trees where they are needed most and by contributing to the restoration of woodlands, we’ll be benefiting biodiversity, including some of Britain’s most loved wildlife species who call these habitats home.

Find out more about the UK trees we have funded by visiting our digital forest here:


We can’t quite believe it either, but we’re ready and raring to host you all with open arms this festive period. Settle in and relax at one of our cosy pubs – letting us take care of the hard work this year. With many of our pubs doing two sittings, join us for a Christmas morning breakfast or settle in for a traditional Christmas roast dinner with a mulled wine or two. Here’s our round-up of the best pubs open on Christmas day this year.
