Doing Things a Little Differently

Christmas at Bowcliffe is a magical time, and as frost crunches underfoot, the Estate takes on a truly ethereal feel – it is, without doubt, the most wonderful place to celebrate with work colleagues, friends and family. At Bowcliffe we don’t offer traditional Christmas parties, instead opting to do things a little differently. The focus lies very much on exquisite food and spectacular surroundings. This year, the Bowcliffe Drivers’ Club is the backdrop for the heavenly Christmas luncheon menu created by Bowcliffe’s signature chef for our Drivers’ Club members.


Perfect for entertaining clients, celebrating Christmas with the team or just an excuse to escape from the office for something a little different, starters include Fresh salmon smoked here at Bowcliffe and the theatre of smoking chicken liver parfait, whilst main courses offer Duncombe Park roast breast of pheasant or venison pie, the venison sourced from our own spectacular Laudale Estate in Scotland. For those unable to resist dessert, don’t miss the classic crème brûlée or iced hazelnut & caramel nougatine parfait.
