Christmas at The Wild Rabbit

Relax in the comfort of our rooms; enjoy award-winning, seasonal food from our Head Chef Nathan Eades and raise a glass or two by the fire in our welcoming bar.

This year we are offering a special three-day Christmas experience.

The celebrations begin on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, when we shall be gathering around our double-sided fireplace to enjoy mulled wine and roasted chestnuts. In the evening, join us in the bar for live music and a complimentary pre-dinner cocktail, before we welcome you into our dining room for an indulgent Christmas Eve dinner. Our Sommelier will also be on hand to provide expert advice on the perfect wine pairing.

In the early hours of Christmas Day, Father Christmas will pay a visit to each guestroom while guests sleep, before you head down to the dining room for a champagne breakfast to start the day.

In the morning there will be a treasure hunt in the village, with prizes to be won for the best team, before we tempt you back to the bar for pre-lunch drinks and canapés.

Using locally sourced and home-grown produce, our Head Chef will welcome you to an extravagant, Christmas lunch in the dining room.

In the evening we shall be laying on a seasonal table of cold cuts, pork pies, terrines and much more, followed by board games by the fire and a festive quiz for those with a competitive spirit.

Boxing Day at The Wild Rabbit is a favourite with guests who are invited to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in our dining room. We have wellies and bikes on hand for anyone wishing to explore the beautiful countryside.

On Boxing Day evening, we shall welcome you back into our dining room for another fabulous dinner.

The Chicken Shed is our private dining room, perfectly suited for an intimate family gathering or a larger celebration during the festive period. Comfortably seating up to 20 people, the contemporary room has its own team of dedicated staff including a chef who will provide a bespoke menu using the finest seasonal ingredients and our Sommelier, who is on hand to provide expert advice on wine pairings or to offer a bespoke tasting in our wine cellar.
