In our family we have always preferred the traditional way of doing things and have a big Christmas lunch at home, however I know that many families prefer to have a day off from cooking and opt to eat out.
I have been looking at some of the Christmas menus that are being advertised and as usual there seem to be some restaurants that are looking at Christmas as a license to print money and are charging vast amounts to anyone who chooses their restaurant for Christmas lunch. We live in a free society and people have the option to go somewhere that is less expensive so, provided the meal is satisfactory, I have no real problem with such an approach.
However I would like to identify and give some recognition to those restaurants that are taking a more balanced approach and offering good quality Christmas lunches at a reasonable price. If you have a favourite restaurant that you will be going to for Christmas Lunch where you know you will be well looked after and where the menu is reasonably priced please let me know and I will give the restaurant a positive mention in a forthcoming Blog.
Finally please let me know what your views are on New Year’s Eve, are you going out or staying in? If you are going out what are you planning and what do you think of the cost?
