We were considering three options for Christmas lunch this year, and the Greenhills won on the basis of their menu. At £80 per head, it was the middle-priced of the options, and had a good menu choice, while still offering quite standard dishes.
Service was the main item of note - and was excellent! From the receptionist who spotted us arrive and directed us, to the person who took our names, to the serving staff - all were friendly to a fault, and displayed military efficiency. The cloakroom attendant was in top hat, tails, and white gloves - a nice touch - and the reception areas were attractively decorated.
On arrival, there was a choice of champagne or orange juice, or a bar for those who fancied neither. There was also seating in this area. We arrived quite early, but didn't have to wait long and were seated at our table within ten minutes - 35 minutes before our scheduled time.
The choice was good - I had turkey and vegetable broth to start, which was delicious, and my mother had chicken and mushroom bouchée with puff pastry case (vol-au-vent), which she found equally delicious. For main course, she had the herb-crusted salmon, which came with prawns but she had without, and I, not fancying that, or the vegetarian option, had to choose among turkey, duck, or fillet of beef. I chose the beef, and discovered it was a (fillet) steak - which was perfectly cooked. The only problem with this dish was that it included potato gratin - which was also good, but I found the mix of flavours odd.
For dessert, I had a selection of ice cream (in a wafer basket, as standard) and she had the sherry trifle. And we were well fed, and would be happy to return here if they serve Christmas lunch again.
