We aim to take all the hard work out of the Christmas and New Year holiday, giving you time to relax and to spend with your family. 

 

As well as our usual deliveries of delicious homemade ready meals, we have also put together some special menus for Christmas day and New Year's Eve. For each occasion, we offer you a choice of menus. Your chosen dishes are then delivered fully prepared, with clear instructions how to finish each one off at home. The meat will be prepared, whether marinated, stuffed or wrapped, ready for you to pop in the oven to cook, and the delicious sauces will be prepared for you ready to reheat. We'll roast your potatoes in advance and tell you how you can reheat them to perfection, and for your vegetable dishes, you will just have to finish them in the oven or simply boil them. If you just want a smaller part of a menu, like just a Christmas pudding, or stuffing and gravy, then we are also happy to help with that!

Please note: these meals are not delivered hot.
Let us know any dietary requirements on placing the order and we will be happy to accommodate you.
