The time has come to plan your office party/family gathering/mates meet-up over the festive period and you’re wondering where to choose. We’re here to help out with some great Brighton suggestions, serving up festive feasts and cracking parties.
The Park Crescent
If you’re looking for simple, homemade food just off the beaten track, then look no further. This pub offers a cosy, festive atmosphere and a simple menu with brand new kitchen manager Daniele Cartoni at the helm.
You’ll find a seasonal menu packed full of locally sourced ingredients, free from GMO and organic where possible. Starters include sumptuous halloumi steaks in a delicious golden breadcrumb with a smooth homemade cranberry sauce and mains include tender beef ribs in a dark and sticky BBQ marinade. Naturally, a delicious crown of turkey is available with all the trimmings too. Desserts include a superb sticky toffee pudding and, of course, a traditional Christmas pud with brandy sauce!
Where to go for a Christmas party? This must be the question on every boss’ lips around about now, but do not fear – Revolution is here. With festive treats to warm your cockles, why not head down to West Street this December. Offering up a range of party options, this is the place to be for delights such as popcorn shrimp, pulled pig in blanket sliders and even pepperoni pizzas. But if you’re after a more traditional take on the party, three-course meals are available for both lunch and dinner. Starters feature a rather special looking crab and shrimp fondue pot, while mains boast confit turkey (with goose fat spuds, no less) and a Camembert and shallot tarte tatin for the veggies. And it wouldn’t be Revolution without a decidedly decadent drinks list. Choose from buckets, bottles, cocktails or champagne!
The C word is just around the corner and MEATliquor Brighton has got Xmas covered. Their new Christmas menu boasts festive dishes including the XXXmas Dog and the XXXmas Burger (a sausage and stuffing patty, roast turkey, crispy bacon, gravy and cranberry sauce) and the crew know you’ll need something to wash these down with, so their drink list features seasonal cocktails such as the Pinot Grinchio, The Tinsel Tickler and the ‘Yule Regret It In The Morning’ vanilla milkshake with vodka, amaretto and gingerbread syrup. Reservations are advisable, so get your Christmas party booked in quick. When you’re feeling too hungover the next day to leave the house, hit up Deliveroo and they’ll bring your Dead Hippie and salted caramel shake straight to your home/office/bed!
