Christmas Parties at the Cottage in the Wood

'Outlook' makes a unique venue for your pre-Christmas get together.  The Daily Mail called the thirty mile vista spread out beneath the restaurant's panoramic windows 'the best view in England'.

Add to that, good food, world class wines and uniquely too, our notorious Party Bags filled with all sorts of silliness including a cracker of course, poppers, rocket balloon, noisemakers and the return of pea shooters by popular demand! (For those of a delicate disposition they can of course be omitted.)

Exclusive Use

Why not organise your party to take advantage of our exclusive use facility for parties of 20 to 24, 38 45 or of 55 to 70 people.  This must be stated clearly when booking.

Pre-payment We deeply regret having to impose pre-payment for parties of 10 or more and to toughen up on the notice period for confirmation of numbers, but we have been badly let down in the past. So sorry, but needs must!

Full pre-payment is required 14 days in advance for bookings of 10 or more covers. If the booking is cancelled within two weeks of the booked date, no monies will be refunded.

Party Days 15th December to 23rd December 2014.

Numbers Bookings of any number up to 65 may be made. See 'exclusive use' on inside page.

Confirmation of Numbers Confirmation of numbers is required one week in advance. After that, if the number decreases, I'm afraid you will be charged for the original number stated.

Lunch: Last orders for drinks - 3.30 pm and final departure time - 4.00 pm.
Dinner: Last orders for drinks - 11.00 pm and final departure time - 11.30 pm.
