When it comes to dining during the festive season, at Aston Marina, we believe in making it a truly magical experience. Whether you’re enjoying an intimate meal for two alongside the woodburner in our cosy No.26 eatery, gathering a group of family and friends for a celebration, or enjoying an elegant Christmas Day feast with views across the wintery waterscape, you can rest assured of quality food prepared with passion and served with a smile.
Like all food served at Aston Marina, with our festive menus the emphasis is on letting seasonal ingredients shine. From traditional Christmas fare to winter classics with a twist and dishes that celebrate world flavours, you’ll find something to suit all tastes.
From Monday 25th November through to Tuesday 24th December, things start to get truly Christmassy, with the No.26 Festive Menu available alongside the restaurant’s impressive Winter Menu. Three courses featuring rich, seasonal flavours are available for £28pp, with a 2-course option available at £24pp. Those wishing to dine out in style on Christmas Day can pre-book a table in No.26 to enjoy a delicious four-course Christmas day menu, priced at £85 per adult and £55 per child – the ultimate festive indulgence.
The run-up to Christmas can be a busy time, with presents to buy, food to organise and entertaining to plan – so what better way to take some time out than by taking afternoon tea (with a festive twist)? Served on Saturday 14th December and accompanied by a live singer, this is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. After enjoying an arrival drink of fizz or orange juice, guests can choose from tea or filter coffee to accompany a veritable banquet of festive favourites.
Elegant sandwiches are packed with seasonal fillings – including Somerset Brie & Cranberry; Free Range Turkey Breast & Stuffing; Cucumber & Cream Cheese and Roast Ham & Mustard Mayonnaise; served alongside Colston Basset Stilton & Pea Tart and a Pig in Blanket Sausage Roll. Sweet treats include Cinnamon Spiced Scone with Clotted Cream; Christmas Chocolate Homemade Tiffin; Homemade Mince Pie and a St Clememt’s Posset with Lemon & Orange. Reservations are essential for the three sittings at 3pm, 3.15pm and 3.30pm with the festive afternoon tea experience priced at £25 per adult and £13 per child.
Throughout the festive season, The Boat House will be party central – available either for exclusive hire or the option to book tables at one of our shared Christmas Party Nights or Christmas Lunches. With guests seated on tables of 8-12 it’s the perfect way to celebrate as a group of colleagues, friends or for larger family parties to come together.
Guests at all of these events will enjoy a fabulously festive three-course meal with fish and vegetarian options alongside the traditional Roast Turkey with all the trimmings and a rich slow-cooked blade of beef. For available dates and prices please contact our events team.
When you party with us at The Boat House, why not pre-order one of our great Christmas Party Drinks packages in advance? That way you’ll have your chosen drinks waiting for you on arrival and can get on with enjoying your celebration rather than standing at the bar! There are packages available to suit all tastes and budgets – from as little at £35 for 10 chilled bottles of Peroni waiting on your table through to £245 for 5 bottles on perfectly chilled Moet champagne. For budgets in between, you can choose from Prosecco and standard, premium and superior wine and water packages to see you through the evening in style.
