Having had such a fab time at our Christmas party last year it would be great to do it again. I don't mind organising as I have a bit of free time.
The thing is, and yes, I know it's only October, places have already started taking bookings and advertising their Christmas menus so if we would like somewhere decent we need to think about it now. We were very lucky last year as there had been a last minute cancellation at the Royal Oak.
Is there anywhere in particular that people fancy? The Royal Oak
was fun last year and the private room which seats 25 was cosy. The Christmas menu at The Hartley
looks good. There was also some mention last year of the Thai up at Elephant ('tho IMHO it's not very festive).
Dates: last year around the 10th Dec seemed popular as later in the month people had other plans/parties or were away.
Let me know what you think ... cheers Plum x
