Christmas at The Russell Arms

Come and enjoy your Christmas & Festive celebrations with us, we have created the perfect Christmas Party menu for all your friends, family and co-workers.

Our Christmas menu is available for lunch and dinner from Friday 24thth November until Saturday 23rd December excluding Sundays. Our three-course menu is priced at £32.00 per guest.  Any Christmas party joining us on or before 8th December will be offered a glass of Prosecco on arrival for each guest (non-transferable). Should you wish to receive a Prosecco reception after 8th December please enquire at any time leading up to the booking.

A non-refundable deposit of £10 per person will be required within 48 hours to confirm your booking. A pre-order form will be sent to you to complete and return no later than 10 days before the date of your party.

The Russell Arms kitchen is closed on the 25th and 26th December but we will be serving drinks 12pm-2pm on Christmas Day and do join us on Boxing Day from 12midday to 4pm for a glass of something warming whilst escaping the Christmas TV (or relatives!).

NEWS: For those wanting a final hurrah with work friends or, well anybody(!), we are opening our doors on Monday 18th December for drinks from 4pm.

Christmas Parties

  • The maximum party size is 30.
    (Parties over 12 may have to be seated on neighbouring tables)
  • We will always help to accommodate any special requests, dietary requirements or plain old dislikes.
  • Throughout December a 10% Service Charge will be added on to parties of 6 or more and shared between the team.
  • This, of course, is completely discretionary and does not require you to ask to take it off – just pay the total on your itemised bill.

Both ‘Christmas Crackers’ and ‘Bah Humbug’ Parties are welcome!


As it’s party month taxis may be in short supply. We recommend that you pre-order your car, departing from The Russell Arms no later than midnight. Please call us for any advice or assistance. If coming under your own steam, please note that parking is limited, so please share cars and consider our neighbours by parking carefully.  Please do not leave valuables in your car, we will be happy to look after them for you.
