Taking the Christmas spirit outdoors for the winter, the historic pub The Black Friar is set to bring to life an array of winter igloos – where guests will be welcome to drink and dine throughout the festive season.
Reopening just this summer after being closed for two whole decades, the beautiful pub – which was rebuilt back in the 1880s – will open their new and unique experience from next week, with room enough for 8 in each dome.
Handbuilt and sticking around for a limited time only, the igloos will be situated in the pub’s large, twinkling beer garden, which is set to be decked out with festive lights, especially for the occasion.
There, guests will be able to enjoy an array of delicious, winter-themed cocktails (the “Hail Mary”, of which, features frozen rosemary inside that looks just like a Christmas tree!), alongside hearty, winter dishes such as roasted winter squash soup, whiskey and fennel salmon, winter truffle and puff pastry pie.
The restaurant has also introduced a new Christmas menu, too, offering two and three courses, with dishes including turkey ballotine, salt aged sirloin steak and classic puds such as mince pies and orange marmalade parfait.
The Christmas Igloos officially launch on the 25th November, and are available for dining bookings only. Each igloo is offered for a two-hour time slot, and you can book yours here.
