Anyone looking for a Christmas party venue in west London ought to check out Island Grill. This 70-seater restaurant situated within the iconic Royal Lancaster London Hotel is available for exclusive hire for both corporate and private seated Christmas parties, and has plenty to offer.
Floor-to-ceiling windows that face Hyde Park, smart décor and special festive menus make for a winning combination when it comes to Christmas party venues in London, and Island Grill has them all. The vibe at Island Grill is refined yet friendly, meaning your guests can make themselves at home on chocolate-coloured chairs, surrounded by house plants and soft lighting - elements that help to create an ambience that’s as fitting for sophisticated sit-down meals as it is to lively Christmas parties looking to pull crackers and get a little merry.
The festive group set menus are available throughout the Christmas period for groups of six or more and offer great value for what promises to be a superb Christmas lunch or dinner. Parties can opt for two or three courses from a choice of two menus and will receive a glass of bubbly on arrival before the main event kicks off. There are four options to choose from for each course and the kitchen is able to accommodate almost any dietary requests, so parties with vegetarians and vegans among them needn’t be put off.
Starters on the Christmas group set menu include classic festive dishes such as treacle cured Loch Duart salmon with horseradish cream, sourdough bread and pickles; roasted cauliflower soup with golden raisin purée; and endive and Cashel blue salad with mulled pear and walnut dressing. Mains are British festive classics in the form of roasted Norfolk turkey with sage and onion stuffing, pigs in blankets and winter vegetables; open lasagne of celeriac, wild mushroom fricassee, glazed chestnuts and winter vegetables; and Bilingsgate fish pie. For dessert, you might opt for traditional Christmas pudding with brandy custard, or go for something a little more inventive like mulled fruit soup with mulled wine sorbet or pear, cinnamon and star anise tatin with cinnamon ice cream.
