Boxing Day Lunch Menu

Thursday, December 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Boxing Day is the perfect family get-together day. No-one has to rush back to work, and there’s no pressure to delivery the perfect Christmas dinner. So why not bring the family out to the Geese and Fountain, and enjoy a relaxed meal that offers something for everyone.

Whether your favourite is a traditional roast dinner (brisket, chicken or gammon), a pub classic like lasagne or our festive chicken burger, or something alternative like our Tex-Mex sharing board featuring enchiladas, chilli and lots more, we have some great ideas for feeding a whole family who’ve eaten their fill of turkey and Christmas pudding on the day before.

Starters and desserts are also a mix of the classic and the unexpected. We’ve got everyone’s favourite, home-made tomato soup, classic prawn cocktail (all our prawns are MSC certified, so you can enjoy them without damaging the environment) and a special cheese-feast starter featuring baked Camembert, breaded mozzarella and beer-battered Brie.

To finish, our famous chocolate brownie has had a festive face-lift and now comes with caramel sauce and a soft, salted caramel vein running through the chocolate. But there’s also gingerbread cheesecake, and a stunning white chocolate and cranberry bread and butter pudding.

Even better, the menu is priced ‘a la carte’ so you don’t need to feel pushed into eating two or three courses if you don’t want to, and everyone can order exactly what they want!

Tables are now booking between 1pm and 5pm. Call the pub on 01476 870350 to reserve your table, and please advise us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.
