FACT: Christmas isn’t Christmas without turkey.
And stuffing, and perfectly roasted potatoes and enough pigs-in-blankets so there’s at least 33 per person. Oh, and parsnips, roasted carrots and sprouts (with little crosses on the bottom obviously). Even the Christmas pudding that no-one actually eats would be missed if your gran didn’t insist on making it every year.
But the thing is – as your slightly-sweaty-asleep-by-7pm mother will tell you – Christmas dinner ain’t easy. That’s why we’re giving your poor, overworked festive caterer a break this year, with our very own magical Christmas dinner.
So without further ado, here’s a rundown of why Christmas at Revolution is guaranteed to jingle your bells this year.
You’ve been starving all day waiting for this moment. You’re all still relatively sober (apart from that one uncle). But more than anything, you’ve never been more impatient to dig in.
And seeing as we’ve all completely overdone it on the starter at least one year (read: every year), we’ve brought some wonderfully light, completely refreshing festive classics to kick off your feast.
Think lip-smackingly good Potted Salt Beef with sourdough toast and pickles. The irresistible classic that is King Prawn and Crab Cocktail. Or really wake up your taste buds like never before with our delicious Avocado and Pomegranate Salad.
And for those of you who revel in ending up on Santa’s naughty list? There’s our gloriously gooey Manchego Cheese Fondue. Yes, really.
Whether you consider turkey your one and only bae, think beef is the only meat you need for mains, or just absolutely LIVE for the trimmings… We’ve got you covered this Christmas.
Seriously, with our super-fresh Grilled Sea Bream for the seafood lovers, our Baked Mushroom Gratin or our Roasted Aubergine for the vegetarians in your fam, AND our perfectly slow-cooked short rib of beef, prepare to feel like your Christmases have all come at once right here.
And for your traditional AF Dad, get ordering him our Roast Turkey Ballotine. With the most tender roast turkey you’ve ever tasted, hearty chorizo stuffing, streaky bacon, gravy AND goose fat roast potatoes, this is Christmas dinner like momma used to make, just loads better (but we won’t tell if you don’t!).
Now, you might usually prefer to fill up on 27 roast potatoes instead of a Christmas treat, but it’s safe to say our desserts are worth saving room/unbuckling your belt for.
In fact, they’re so damn good, we recommend ordering every single last one of ‘em.
Start with our boozy, classic Christmas pudding smothered in our homemade brandy sauce. Then feel wonderfully indulgent with our Chocolate Brownie, a winter warmer served with cream and plenty of salted caramel. Or get a taste of the Christmas spirit with our rich Baked NY Cheesecake, lovingly topped with all your favourite sweet berries.
And for a dessert to end all desserts? Look no further than our delicious Winter Berry Cocktail. Packed full of fruity berries, a dollop of vanilla ice cream and a shot of white chocolate vodka, for a festive treat that’s a complete gift to your taste buds.
Look, we all LOVE spending time with our family.
The memories. The unspoken bond. The way every family member reminds you of the most awkward moments of your life like they’re Harry Hill presenting a Christmas special of You’ve Been Framed.
So, with this in mind, if you really don’t think you can handle two sit-down dinners with your fam this season… You need our Christmas Buffet in your life.
And with bite-sized Turkey Sliders, crispy Calamari, and more pigs in blankets than you can shake a chipolata sausage wrapped in streaky bacon at, this is one Christmas Buffet you’ll never forget.
Hungry? Ravenous? Absolutely starvin’ marvin for every kind of Christmas delicacy? Yeah, we’re not bloody surprised.
And seeing as it’s officially December now, the tinsel should be out the loft, the tree should be bought, and if our Christmas dinner looks like the festive night of your dreams… It’s still not too late to book!
