December has arrived and Christmas is in the air! Yes things will be a little different this year but we still want to bring Christmas to the Erskine in the best way that we can. Christmas is still going to be a time to relax, have fun and catch up with friends and family, just on a slightly smaller scale! So why not do all of this over a delicious meal?
Under current guidance we are able to take Christmas bookings up to 4 people from multiple households (or unlimited people from one household) however should things change before Christmas then we will happily amend your booking. Best thing is to drop us email on firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a ring on 01492 593 535 and we’ll do our very best to try and accommodate you during the festivities…please note the festive menu can’t be booked online.
All being well our Christmas menu will run from Friday 27th November to Wednesday 30th December 2020 (excluding Christmas Day) alongside our normal menu.
