“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” Dame Edith Sitwell

Happy Christmas! It’s that wonderful time of year with friends and family, a roaring fire, bejewelled tree and far too many mince pies. It’s also a time for generosity and hospitality, so our gift to you this Christmas morning is 50% off the daily menu in all our homes, Monday to Thursday for lunch or dinner, for all of January.

The offer is valid on the £23.5 and £26.5 menus at The Beacon and The Swan and across all the tasting menus at The Twenty Six. Keep January sparkling with I’ll be Mother this festive season.
