It may seem a little early to start discussing Christmas events but we have been thinking of turkey and christmas trees for some time here at the Appleby Inn! With such demand for our festive offerings we tend to get our dates for christmas entertainment and menus for all days into print before we have even had chance to enjoy any summer sun!
Our Christmas Day menu sold out in record time this year with bookings flooding in before we had chance to print the menu and our Boxing Day set menu is now on the receiving end of similar attention. Such is the quality of our menu and the renowned festive atmosphere of these days we are packed to the rafters every year, also accompanied with our famous visit from Santa on Christmas Day, and my traditional colourful Christmas suits!
Before we get to Christmas Day and Boxing Day we offer a midweek pre-christmas menu, perfect for both a small gathering or a larger party. We serve the pre-xmas menu from November right throughout the busy month of December leading up to Christmas Day. Again we advise booking early as we book up very fast for this all of our Christmas events.
At the weekend our festive offerings include live entertainment evenings featuring top quality performers and hosted by the fantastic Marc Bolton who is worth the ticket money alone with his mix of laughter and stunning vocals, all accompanied with a delicious four course christmas meal. For a less formal evening we offer high energy party nights with music coming from our resident DJ after a four course christmas menu. We have been hosting both styles of christmas parties for over ten years now and the feedback has been overwhelming! From company nights our or gatherings with friends and family it is wonderful to host guests enjoying the christmas events period at the Appleby Inn.
All menus are available to view on our website now, and whilst it may seem little early to be keeping an eye on Christmas we are already looking forward to hosting you all! Don’t worry though we will leave the tree in the loft a little longer…
"Fantastic, absolutely fantastic. We booked a table for 22 which was reserved and laid out lovely. The food was all ordered separately by different family members but all arrived together and was served and cooked as requested without any problems. We will definitely be going back, highly recommended. Many thanks Appleby Inn."
"We stayed here on our way home from Sunderland to the South West so about half way. Off junction 11 M42 about a mile from the junction and very easy to find. The room we had was very big and was also very clean. All rooms have ensuite showers. The room rate comes with full english breakfast which was excellent"
"Always fresh food and super friendly service! Been coming here for 20 years and I've never had a bad experience."
"An absolutely gorgeous Sunday roast today! Quick, efficient, friendly service from the staff, too. Very well-priced as portions were plentiful. Will happily return and definitely recommend!"
