Welcome to Christmas 2021 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 in the Hangar at 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

Where better to start than at Le Talbooth, the award winning restaurant on the river Stour which is takes on a magical atmosphere in December in the run up to Christmas.

New for 2021 is a special 4 course Gourmet Christmas menu with  the choice of adding chosen wines to complement each course. And let’s not forget midweek lunch in the restaurant when the turkey always has centre stage on the carving trolley, or the Weavers Room on the first floor for a private celebration.

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.

The Weavers Room can be booked Monday to Saturday for lunch or dinner throughout December, or on a Sunday for lunch only.

Please ask for more information (01206 323150)

Lunch in the River Room

Lunch in the River Room is available from Monday to Saturday from 12 noon to 2.15 pm

Two courses £32.50

Three courses £42.00

Traditional turkey (carved by the Chef at your table) and Christmas pudding will be on the lunch menu during December.

Minimum two – maximum 12 (if you want to go ‘crackers’ just ask).

Don’t forget the restaurant will be open every evening for dinner (excluding Sunday), when the full a la carte and the Christmas Gourmet menu will be available.
