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 :).
