Christmas Dinner at the Savoy Hotel
This is my very first visit to the Savoy Hotel. And this is for an Office Christmas Dinner. Lucky me that this is paid for by my employer.
I use the main entrance to get in. There is a popular canopy with the ‘SAVOY’ logo. The lobby is pretty impressive with classic (Victorian?) design.
The Christmas dinner took place at the River Room. It is quite a large hall where we can see Thames river from the rear windows.
It is a three dining course with a float of red and white wine and orange juice. I have noted down each name of the course. My starter starts with a ‘smoked salmon with marinated beets, watercress, horseradish and soda bread crisps’.
Then my main course is of course turkey! It has a long description, here it is:
‘Roasted organic Cambridge bronze turkey with a chestnut stuffing, pancetta wrapped chipolatas, pumpkin purée, Brussels sprouts with a chestnut cremolata, roast potatoes, turkey jus and bread sauce’.
My dessert is a Christmas pudding! It is a Christmas pudding with Brandy sauce and mascarpone ice cream.
You can see the size of the hall below. I think it fits ten tables (each table has 12 persons). So seating arrangement is for approximately 120 people.
I also have a sneak peak at the Restaurant entrance (I think it is the Savoy Grill). Maybe next time when I am lucky enough, I will treat my husband to eat there :).
