Christmas Party guide

The work or social secretary in your friendship group will be prowling the internet, getting their spreadsheet ready with the pre-orders and creating something of a buzz ahead of the social night of the year.

To help them on their way, here is our guide to where you should hang the mistletoe this year in Newbury Town Centre.

Elephant at the Market

For £27.95 you can grab a three-course Christmas meal at lunch or dinner. There are five choices for each course, featuring everything from roasted beetroot for starters, to trout and spiced aubergine for mains as well as the usual options.

A Festive canape menu for the more informal gathering can be yours for £16.95 per person.

Newbury Racecourse

The hustle and bustle of New York greets you as you head to the Racecourse for a night of sophistication and sparkle. Guys and dolls will be treated to the sights and sounds of the Big Apple in their amazing Broadway Ballroom looking out on the majestic Manhattan skyline. There is just one date left for the Christmas Party night - Friday 7 December.

There is a limited food menu with just one choice for starter and pudding.

The Dolphin

It will be the first time Newbury gets to experience a Dolphin Christmas, and judging by the menu they are going all out to impress with starters featuring garlic caviar, mains such as Braised steak au poivre and some delicious sounding puddings.

Available from mid-November, reserve a spot at Bills and get a welcome drink, nibbles, and three courses for £27.95. That drink is either a Prosecco, Estrella Galicia or a Mocktail. It's a terrine, soup, salmon or a beetroot and feta salad for the starter. There's the usual mains along with a beef, bacon and camambert burger and for pudding it has to be all about the chocolate orange bread and butter crumble.
