McCambridge’s have just launched their Winter Menu in their highly commended Restaurant, where you can enjoy Mulled Wine and Mince Pies to finish. When we sat down to speak to Tom Flaherty the Restaurant Manager about what Christmas brings to the Restaurant and what he feels the new menu will offer to the customers. He said:

‘We want our customers to feel like they have stepped into Christmas as they are seated at their tables. We do this by offering a varied menu full of hearty, warm and seasonal dishes suitable for all of our customers. Each dish is a feast for the senses and beautifully presented by our dedicated chefs.’

Too busy to dine upstairs? Their downstairs Coffee Bar will be serving Mulled Wine and Festive desserts to their customers, who wish to warm themselves after braving the cold of Winter from early in the morning too late in the evening. The staff of McCambridge’s will always greet you with a smile, and no task is too big or too small. There is little doubt that Christmas at McCambridge’s will be yet another incredible one – if not even better than the last.

We along with the staff at McCambridge’s are very excited about what Christmas will have in store for us this year. From the Annual Food & Wine Fair, to their luxurious new hamper range, their Winter menu and more!
