Christmas Dinner at The Folly

  • Dec 8, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's time for The Casual Foodie Club's Christmas Dinner! Please note that all pictures on this page are of course from last years dinner!

We're going back to The Folly, loved by our members for a great atmosphere, great service, and of course, great food!

We'll be ordering from The Folly's Christmas set menu, which is great value. Three courses are £28.95, three courses plus coffee and a mince pie is £32.95, and three courses with a glass of champagne is £35.95.

Your choices are as follows:

STARTERS

  • Roasted carrot, sweet potato & cardamom soup w/ ciabatta
  • Duck liver parfait w/ onion & kumquat chutney
  • Prawn cocktail on baby gem leaf
  • Roasted beetroot, goat’s cheese & rosemary tart w/ toasted chestnuts

MAINS

  • Roast loin of pork w/ braised red cabbage, potato purée & baby carrots
  • Norfolk bronze turkey, stuffed w/ chestnut & sage, accompanied by seasonal roast vegetables & cranberry jus
  • Roast Shetland Island salmon w/ new potato & roasted winter vegetable salad
  • Grilled polenta w/ wild mushrooms, parmesan & pesto dressing

DESSERTS

  • Rich chocolate ganache tart w/ Cornish clotted cream
  • Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Christmas pudding w/ brandy sauce
  • Drunken Winter fruits in Auchentoshan single-malt whisky w/ tangerine cream
  • Ilchester farmhouse cheddar w/ fresh grapes, chutney & oatcake biscuits

Of course, The Folly serves plenty of drinks for you to choose from as well!

The Folly is a great pub with a great atmosphere. They put so much effort into keeping the theming amazing throughout the regular season that their Christmas theming is sure to be amazing, and I'm really excited to see it - as well as try the food of course!

I would love to have lots of members come and celebrate Christmas with us! After the meet you are welcome to stay and have some drinks with us, either remaining at The Folly or moving on to a different bar depending on how we feel at the time.

Please note that the deposit is higher for this meetup than usual, because I have to pay The Folly upfront with a deposit. However do not fear, £10 of your deposit goes straight towards your food.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE TO GIVE OUR MENU CHOICES IN ADVANCE. You do not have to know them at this stage, but if you already know what you'd want, please save me time of chasing you down later and answer it when RSVPing now!

    Very good meal, a lovely restaurant and some really nice people there, although I wouldn't say the food was outstanding.

    The main course was my favourite. Starter was alright; wasn't too pleased with dessert; wish that the food was a little cheaper. But at least my main course was very good. Nice company that sat next to me, and nice host.

    So much stuff happening in this group it's hard to keep track. Good news, I guess. :) My calendar in early December is a big unknown at this stage, but I'll reply as soon as I get a clear picture. The menu looks great, by the way.

    Sounds like really good fun except for having to notify food choices in advance. Far too rigid and Germanic for me. The whole point of a restaurant is to offer choice - bad enough havign a set menu

    September 7, 2012

    • Nicola

      You have to notify like 72 hours in advance, I'm giving the option to people who know now so I don't have to chase it up later. But I'd be surprised if you found many places that weren't running set menus!
