Special Christmas evenings at Poundbury Gardens

Added on 10 November 2008

The Engine Room at Poundbury Gardens at Poundbury in Dorchester is opening for special Christmas Suppers on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in the run up to Christmas - and festive food full of local flavour will be top of the menu. The special Christmas Suppers will be served in the atmospheric Engine Room Restaurant at Poundbury Gardens and, as well as enjoying delicious food cooked by chef Paul Swingler, diners will be able to experience the magical Christmas displays which this year include traditional, contemporary, art deco, woodland, fairy castle, and natural feather and fir-cone themes.

The special Christmas supper evenings begin on Thursday 6th November and will run on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until Saturday 20th December. Flavours such as Roast Marmalade Ham, Breast of Local Pheasant in a Winter Berry Sauce and Tipsy Trifle are on the menu which can also be arranged for private parties.

"This year our Christmas suppers have been chosen by Paul to reflect the very best local produce available - from local game and meat through to superb home made puddings and cheeses. We have already had hundreds of people through the displays and it is wonderful to see the reaction of people and of course especially the children. Our evening events will give people an opportunity to walk around the displays maybe with a pre-supper drink, then afterwards enjoy a wonderful supper of local food," said James Foster-Pegg.

Reservations are advised, please telephone The Engine Room on 01305 257251.
