LEAF’s Christmas At Home Xmas day feasting boxes return after last year’s debut. The delicious three-course set menu will be available at Bold St and West Kirby whilst Smithdown Road will feature some lovely festive specials.

The festive season is fast approaching (sorry, we know it’s early) and the big day itself will soon be upon us. With the clocks soon going back, cosy autumnal days and nights will be here and it’s time to start planning seasonal get-togethers with friends, family and colleagues to celebrate Christmas as it is meant to be – big groups and smaller gatherings coming together as one. 

LEAF’s three venues work perfectly for large festive get-togethers just as they are intimate cosy escapes to indulge in a winter warming tipple or two. And now the independent venues across the city region have just announced their Christmas plans – West Kirby and the flagship Bold Street destination will feature a delicious 3-course set menu and Smithdown Road will feature lovely festive specials.

The 3-course feast features lots of traditional touches and some mouth-watering flourishes with the option of a mince pie and filter coffee at the end. It’s £29.99 per person and the service will run from 28th Nov – 20th Dec. Booking are open now.

And after last year’s successful debut, LEAF’s Christmas At Home feasting boxes are also making a very welcome return. Borne from the idea to simply take all of the hassle out of cooking on December 25th, LEAF’s approach is to have everything covered for a sumptuous service with all the trimmings. Collection is from LEAF’s three venues.
