We’re delighted to present the 2017 Christmas Menu at the Geese and Fountain, which will be available for lunch and dinner, from Friday, December 1st to Saturday, December 23rd, excluding Sundays.
The Christmas Menu will be available by pre-order only, but there is no minimum party size – if you want to have Christmas dinner by yourself, or as a couple, you are very welcome. Groups up to approximately 35 can be accommodated subject to availability, so we’d advise larger groups to book early to avoid disappointment.
As you’d expect at the Geese and Fountain, our ingredients are all carefully sourced, seasonal and often farmed locally. None more local than the delicious geese and turkeys farmed in Croxton Kerrial by Gerald Botterill. This year, we will be offering goose or turkey as the centrepiece of a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. Other local ingredients taking a starring role will include Belton Park venison in a juniper and red wine casserole, a charcuterie board featuring Rutland Charcuterie produce and a selection of our home-made breads, and Belvoir Ridge cream adding a perfect note of indulgence to our sherry trifle, and the stem ginger mousse. Naturally, our cheeseboard will showcase the best of local cheeses, from Lincolnshire Poacher and Sparkenhoe to the essential Christmas cheese: Colston Bassett Stilton.
Tables must be booked and your selections from the menu ordered a minimum of 48 hours ahead.
Bookings can be made by telephone on 01476 870350 or by completing the reservation form on the reverse of the menu and dropping it in to us at the pub. We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you this December.
