Christmas Lunch

We seriously recommend abandoning the kitchen on Christmas Day and eating in one of London's great restaurants. You absolutely have to book for Christmas lunch or dinner, and of course many restaurants are closed.

lunchFor traditional Christmas lunch, the statistics say that almost half of Londoners will eat turkey, but roast beef, lamb and duck are popular. Other than traditional Christmas pudding, other regular delights include Mince Pies (they do not contain meat, just fruit) and mulled wine.

Based on personal experience, I'd say that perhaps 2/3 of people eat their big christmas meal at lunch and the other 1/3 eat christmas dinner. And probably, if truth be told, everyone who has lunch ends up eating it at 4pm because they under-estimate how long it takes to cook all the extra food!
