On the menu, expect authentic Southern style Cornbread along with a choice of starters from Bacon and sweetcorn chowder, Pomegranate and arugula (rocket) salad or a seasonal Pear, toasted hazelnut, cranberry and red onion salad on a bed of spinach.
As always, the Maple roasted turkey is bound to steal the show but there is a fantastic Nut roast on offer for vegetarians. This will be served amongst an abundance of sides including roasted Brussels sprouts with Cranberry brown butter and Sausage, fennel and pine nut stuffing.
Last, but certainly not least, will be the show stopping desserts where you will have the choice between the ultimate Pumpkin pie, Bourbon and chocolate pecan pie or Goat’s infamous Blueberry and vanilla Cheesecake. Goat’s very own cocktail maestro, Steve Manktelow, will be creating a delicious mulled wine cocktail to be served alongside this fantastic feast! Adults – £35, children – £25
So make sure you use this great occasion to get out and stuff your face in London!
