Private Festive Dining

Everyone knows the way to the heart is through the stomach, so what better way to treat the team than by taking them for a festive lunch or dinner to remember? They’ve worked darn hard these last couple of years – they’ve earned it!

Unsurprisingly, The Grand has you covered – with festive dining experiences you just won’t find anywhere else. You’ll have your own private dining room, where you and your co-workers can truly kick back in style. Host an intimate soirée in their Butterworth or Ridley suites or enjoy lunch or dinner with all the trimmings in their impressive Grand Boardroom.

Festive Lunch

As for the food itself, if it’s a festive lunch you’re going for, you can expect to start off your celebrations with a prosecco on arrival – where you’ll be greeted by exquisite decorations, crackers, personalised menus and place cards – before tucking into your festive menu.

Two-course festive lunches are £35 per adult

Three-course festive lunches are £45 per adult

Festive Dinner

Or, if a festive dinner is more to your taste, step into your private dining room for the evening and enjoy prosecco and canapés on arrival, those same exquisitely seasonal decorations and crackers, personalised menus and place cards, your choice of a three- or four-course dinner, coffee and petit fours to finish.

Three-course festive dinners are £59 per adult

Four-course festive dinners (including a cheese course) are £69 per adult

Bespoke Team Building with Christmas Cookery Classes

Do you feel as though staff celebrations are still in order this Christmas, but you want to add a little team building into the mix, too? Don’t sweat it. The Grand’s Christmas Cookery Classes are the perfect ice-breaker, stalemate shaker and merry maker going. And let’s face it – they’re something totally different from the norm, too.

This unique team building activity will see you and the team prepare your own festive feasts and treats, with a little help from The Grand’s cooking extraordinaires, who are only too happy to share a few trade secrets that’ll help you take your festive food to the next level. Plus, the team at The Grand can create a bespoke, fully immersive Christmas cookery experience to suit everyone at your business – from festive baking to Christmas dinner parties and Chef’s Table – so no-one need miss out.

Once your culinary creations are cooking, you can all retire to your own private, adjoining meeting and dining room, where all your friends and colleagues can celebrate the year you’ve shared while tucking into each other’s foodie masterpieces. Bon appétit.
