Christmas Dinner

With all the trimmings


Each December we launch a selection of festive menus fit for a sensational Christmas or New Year dining experience. We invite you to celebrate your Christmas your way, with your very favourite people, enjoying food you'll love at Aldwyn's at Ellerslie. 

For Christmas-get-togethers in November and December our selection of freshly-prepared seasonal menu options will return next year. For 2021 we created several bespoke menus for festive dining at our Malvern restaurant, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year set menus, and festive afternoon teas to be enjoyed with colleagues, friends and family throughout the festive season. Guests can expect similar festive dishes to return to Aldwyn's at Ellerslie next December.

If your Christmas 2021 celebration has been delayed until January or February 2022, rest assured that our a la carte menu, afternoon teas and Sunday roasts remain deliciously popular choices throughout the year. Each Aldwyn's menu is refreshed with seasonal favourites four times a year.

Please advise our staff of any allergies or special dietary requirements. We can help identify suitable dishes for you and provide a list of all dishes containing allergens. Please let us know in advance if you have any special requests and Chef will always do their best to accommodate.
