What do we all crave in winter? A little sunshine, of course! Give your colleagues the gift of a tropical holiday for the night this Christmas and organise the office do at Poulet. If you haven't heard of it before, Poulet is a unique rotisserie chicken restaurant which can be found on the ever-charming Maltby Street Market. Surrounded by independent restaurants, wine bars and boutiques, Poulet is nestled under a brick railway arch and offers evening dining with a lively atmosphere.
The menu may be simple but the decor certainly is not - and this is where the party vibe comes in. Think purple mood lighting, countless strings of fairy lights glittering over head, neon signs, huge beaded parasols, vases filled with feathers and there's even sometimes a campervan in there - just for fun. Stepping inside is like taking a mini vacation, especially when you have the whole place to yourself.
The brilliant staff are like family here and welcome Christmas dining bookings who have exclusive use of the entire venue. The restaurant's opening hours can even be extended depending on how late you want to party and the team will chat through food options to help you best utilise the menu.
Speaking of which, the menu revolves around rotisserie chicken and has perfected its dishes to an art. There's always a sandwich and salad on offer, which might be something like a pulled rotisserie chicken baguette with melted cheese, sriracha mayo and jus and a pulled chicken salad with house dressing. Or, choose from a half or whole chicken and sides such as chips, sweet potato fries, halloumi fries and garlic and rosemary new potatoes. it's a fun twist on the classic festive roast format.
The drinks menu has plenty of options (always essential at a Christmas party) and offers bottled and draft beers, ciders, natural wine, classic wine and a huge selection of cocktails from a paloma to an espresso martini.
