The traditional 'office' party definitely (and thankfully) appears to be on the wane – after all, let’s face it, the canteen or staff room never really lent themselves to a relaxed, festive atmosphere.
Plus, the aftermath involving sausage rolls in the fax machine and curly edged sandwiches through the shredder is never really welcome in business! Whether it be lunch for your small business or a full on corporate bash, there are venues in Croydon catering for all, so you can enjoy your annual office celebration in style.
Located close to Croydon town centre, Addington Palace can cater for your event, be it for 10 to 200 people in the Palace Venue, or up to a staggering 750 people in the Royal Marquee. With their own experienced Events Team, they will take care of all the details ensuring this is one Christmas party the company won’t forget! Their highly skilled team of chefs guarantee a fine dining experience of your choice and the luxurious venue, which is set in stunning surroundings, will add a touch of class to any corporate gathering.
If you prefer something a little more intimate, The Furzedown Pub near Croydon is a warm and friendly public house, recently renovated with a Gastro style restaurant and featuring a mix of British, European and Asian cuisines suitable for all tastes. You can also hire the function room, which caters for up to 100 people, and the accommodation in the upper part of the premises even gives you the opportunity to simply crash when you're all partied out!
Offering a range of Christmas packages, the Hallmark Hotel in Croydon provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable Christmas lunch or dinner. Fabulous menus and fine wines, catering for parties of all sizes, Hallmark Hotel promises a sparkling, stress free Christmas event!
For something a little bit different why not try the Little Bay experience? Located on Selsdon Road, the restaurant is housed inside a wooden boating shack, where eccentric and sumptuous decor meets colourful lighting and nooks and crannies to give the restaurant a sense of the exotic and exciting. Specialising in European food at competitive prices, the Little Bay restaurant offers something just a little bit different for your office Christmas party.
Hot, modern and contemporary... is that your business? If so, the buzzing atmosphere of one of Croydon's newest European restaurants is sure to suit you to a tee. The Aqua Brasserie, with its sophisticated styling and sumptuous menu, provides a warm welcome to parties of all sizes.
If you don’t want your Christmas lunch to be just like, well, any other Christmas lunch, how about sampling the finest authentic Indian cuisine at the Panahar Restaurant? Widely recognised as one of the best Indian restaurants in the area, the Panahar can boast of having catered for every Mayor of Croydon since it opened in 2000!
Finally, how about an Italian alternative? Bagatti's Restaurant produces mouth-watering dishes prepared with the freshest ingredients. They are able to cater for party bookings of up to 100 people or can even bring their fine catering to you!
So, there is no question that Croydon offers a huge range of possibilities for this year's Christmas bash. Clearly the problem is going to be deciding which one!
