When I discovered that my husband would not be able to finish installing our new kitchen in time for Christmas I did not panic. I simply phoned the Poppy House. Luckily they had one table remaining. We ate here for Christmas 2010. The food was great then and we were not disappointed for this second visit. The business is family run and they make a great team. We were made to feel very welcome. The restaurant was very nicely decorated with roaring log fire to keep us all warm. There were five courses : starter, champagne sorbet, main course, dessert and finally mince pies & coffee/tea all for just £39.99 excellent value as all eating places charge double or more for Christmas Lunch. As we arrived we offered hot mulled wine or orange juice. All courses were absolutely delicious I had two large fillets of salmon cooked in a white white & tarragon cream sauce. The fish was melt in the mouth and tasted divine!
Could not recommend this place more or fault the kind caring staff. To top it all as we left we were all given Christmas gift bags containing Poppy House toiletries and chocolate - what a lovely gesture! Thank you Poppy House for a wonderful, delicious and stress free Christmas Lunch!
