Our group had lunch in a private room - the Billiards Room. We found it no surprise given the room name to find our dining table was indeed the Billards Table, but it definitely raised a few smiles around the room.
The room had pleasant views of parts of the grounds and was decorated for the festive season, complete with crackers on the table.
Whilst our get together was not planned as a 'Christmas' lunch, due to the time of year we were able to take advantage of the Festive Menu on offer at Stapleford Park. We did wonder if the offering might be more of a taster than a full tum dinner as you can sometimes find in luxury venues - but we were pleasantly surprised. I went home really rather stuffed!
I opted for Plum Tomato, Basil & Jerusalem Artichoke Soup, Turkey with Festive accompaniments and BlackBerry Cheesecake. All were delicious - I'm lactose intolerant and often told to avoid dishes like cheesecake, but let me tell you it was worth it!!
I'm fairly confident my colleagues felt the same - I always think it speaks volumes when a room goes quiet after dinner is served. A true sign that all is truly yummy!
