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. And if things change, and we are allowed to open, we’re ready and waiting to serve you.
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 or 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.
You can use our usual booking system to reserve a slot for either a collection or a local delivery, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout December. Delivery is free up to six miles from Croxton Kerrial, and just £5 between six and fifteen miles.
You can also make a provisional booking for a table at the pub, or for one of our Family Dining Rooms, for Saturday 19th December, Wednesday 23rd or Thursday 24th. We are hoping that Leicestershire will be moved down from tier three to tier two when the Government reviews the situation on December 16th, and we expect to be able to open from the 19th if that happens. If it turns out that we are not allowed to open, we will happily convert all table reservations into either take-away or cook-at-home orders.
Full details on the take away and cook at home options are on the menu below. Prices are £21 for two courses, £25 for three courses (children at £15 and £18 respectively), meal choices need to be submitted five days prior to your reservation date, and at that point a non-refundable deposit of £10 per person is required.
Please get in touch if you have any questions, or if you would like to book.
