A taste of Christmas

Celebrate the magic of Christmas with your loved ones courtesy of a delectable feast this year. Two local venues, One Warwick Park Hotel and Salomons Estate, found in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells, invite you to indulge in the festive flavours of the season…

One Warwick Park Hotel

Nestled in the heart of town, One Warwick Park, a luxurious boutique hotel, will host a sumptuous Christmas feast on December 25 at its popular restaurant, The Brasserie. With two seating options at 12.00pm and 2.45pm, you can sit back and savour the celebration without feeling rushed.

Begin your feast with complimentary bubbles and a choice of appetisers, featuring options such as smoked duck, and a beetroot and soft cheese terrine.

The main event is a classic turkey with cranberry and sage stuffing, accompanied by sides like festive vegetables, roasted parsnips, Yorkshire pudding, and pigs in blankets. For vegetarians or those with a plant-based preference, alternatives include a flaky salmon en croute and an indulgent butternut squash and mushroom nut roast Wellington.

But make sure you save room for dessert as the menu includes an irresistible raspberry and white chocolate roulade, salted caramel and milk chocolate cheesecake and traditional Christmas pudding doused in brandy crème anglaise.

Reservations can be made through OpenTable for just £99.00 per adult, while children under 12 dine for £49.50.

If you’re looking for more ways to celebrate, then the good news is the festive fun doesn’t only begin on Christmas Day. The hotel will be kicking off the season in style at its annual Christmas party on December 1. Dress to impress as tickets include a complimentary cocktail on arrival, a delicious three-course festive feast and an evening of music and dancing! Guests can also look forward to breakfast with Santa, a favourite amongst families, and also a jazz night.

For those seeking a well-deserved escape, One Warwick Park Hotel is also offering a luxurious package just for Christmas. It includes a two-night stay with a delightful dinner at The Brasserie on Christmas Eve, hearty breakfasts on Christmas and Boxing Day mornings, and of course, their sumptuous Christmas Day lunch. It costs from £595 per couple.

Hidden among the scenic country lanes of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Salomons Estate is also ready to serve a delightful Christmas Day feast. The remarkable Victorian mansion provides the perfect backdrop for a grand celebration, and you can secure your table by visiting salomons-estate.com.

The chefs have prepared a lavish three-course menu that finishes with tea, coffee, and mini mince pies. It’s priced at £97.50 for adults and £45.00 for children under 12.

Start with a choice of delicious appetisers, including a three-cheese fondue soufflé and prawn, smoked salmon, and crayfish with a velvety avocado mousse.

Moving on to the main course, tuck into a hearty carvery of turkey breast, sirloin of beef, and honey roast gammon. Vegetarians can enjoy a sweet potato, chestnut, sage, and cranberry filo parcel as an equally delightful alternative. Oh and don’t forget the trimmings! Salomons Estate will be serving them all including crispy potatoes, pigs in blankets, and giant Yorkshire puddings!

To finish, there’s a scrumptious dessert selection to choose from. Options include prosecco and orange Christmas pudding, espresso martini panna cotta, a delightful strawberry shortcake, and an elegant white chocolate roulade.

If you plan to enjoy a generous helping of bubbly on the big day, why not extend your stay? Tucked within the estate’s beautiful gardens, you’ll discover a charming row of newly refurbished cottages that offer the perfect bookend to a day of celebration. Don’t delay though as availability is limited during the festive season…

As well as a Christmas Day to remember, the exquisite manor house will also be hosting a series of other events throughout December including their popular Michael Bublé Experience, Christmas wreath workshops and a special visit from Santa!

The chefs will also be serving festive afternoon tea throughout the season, and if you’re a fan of grand celebrations, the award-winning events team have put together one last final soirée.

Salomons’ Jingle Ball promises a fantastic evening of dancing, great food, and plenty of bubbles! Tickets include a welcome drink followed by a lavish three-course festive menu. There will be a DJ, photobooth and even a casino table for a touch of glamour and fun!
