Welcome to Christmas 2019 at Milsom Hotels & Restaurants

There's lots happening in December, from a delicious Christmas afternoon tea at The Pier to celebrating in the Weavers Room at Le Talbooth, and not forgetting our famous party nights at Le Talbooth and Milsoms Kesgrave Hall.

Whether you’re looking for a party for two, a party for 12, or a party for 200 or more, we have it covered with menus and venues to suit everyone for family, friends and business.

Le Talbooth

There is so much to do during Christmas and where better to start than at Le Talbooth, the award winning restaurant on the river Stour. During December we add a marquee parallel to the River Room for our party nights. And let’s not forget midweek lunch in the restaurant when the turkey has centre stage on the carving trolley, or the Weavers Room on the first floor for a private event.

Weavers Room

Lunch or dinner in the Weavers on the first floor at Le Talbooth takes some beating – we think it’s the perfect room for smaller parties for families, friends and business.

Choose from the options:

Three course lunch with coffee & mince pies

From £42.50 per person (crackers and hats included)

or

Three course dinner with a glass of fizz, coffee & mince pies

From £55 per person (crackers and hats included)

If you are on our Party Night package (from £58 per person) and choose to use the Weavers Room, the dancing awaits downstairs!

Minimum 12 maximum 34 and no room hire during December when on the Christmas menu.

Party Nights Beside the River Stour

  • Sparkling reception
  • Delicious three course dinner with coffee
  • Dancing to Dreamwave Events DJ

  • Friday 6th, 13th and 20th
  • Saturday 7th, 14th and 21st
