Christmas 2020: Take away and ‘cook at home’ options

Christmas this year is likely to be very different.

But at the Geese and Fountain we are determined to help you have the best possible Christmas, even if we can’t host big parties or the usual extended family get-togethers.

What we can do is provide you with the best ingredients for a family Christmas meal at home.

So for Christmas 2020 we are delighted to launch our Christmas meal take away options and ‘cook at home’ packs for the very first time. Exactly the same quality ingredients, prepared by us to our usual high standards, but then packaged in one of two ways:

  • Take away meals are cooked to perfection, all set for you to collect or us to deliver piping hot and ready to eat.
  • Cook at home packs are prepared by us, and then packaged, chilled and frozen (as appropriate) for you to take home (either collection or local delivery available) and finish off at a time that suits you. Full instructions will be supplied with your pack, and the contents will be great even 24 hours after your booked time, which means for the first time ever you can pick up a G&F Christmas meal on Christmas Eve and cook it yourself to perfection on Christmas Day itself.

Both options can come with additional drinks, from our extensive selections of beers, wines, ciders and more. Just talk to us about your preferences, and we will be happy to help make your Christmas 2020 extra special.

And as soon as we’re allowed to we will open up bookings for Christmas bookings in the pub again too. Keep an eye on our website and our social media channels for all our latest updates.

Full details on the take away and cook at home options are on the attached leaflet. Prices are £21 for two courses, £25 for three courses (children at £15 and £18 respectively), and a non-refundable deposit of £10 per person at the time of booking is required.

Please get in touch if you have any questions, or if you would like to book.
