If you can’t wait until Christmas, Brewers Fayre also has a great-value festive menu from just £14.99. Kick off the show with Mac & Cheese Bites or Pulled Beef Filled Yorkie, with mains including the Festive Stack Burger, layered with turkey, bacon, pork sausage and cranberry mayonnaise in a ‘brioche style’ bun.

For the encore, don’t miss out on the irresistible Profiterole Stack, drizzled in chocolate sauce and pair with tipple from the festive cocktail menu, or from the Chocobox Martini range.

We were invited along to try the festive food at Brewers Fayre and it certainly got us in the Christmas spirit.

The price has no reflection on the decency of the dishes that you receive. As I have a more savoury tooth, I opted for a starter rather than dessert, and ordered my all time favourite of prawn cocktail.

The portion size was more than ample, crisp salad, oodles of prawns and delicious marie rose sauce, with slices of bread and butter. Extremely tasty.

Myself and partner both chose the turkey dinner which came with all the trimmings – roasties, parsnips, carrots, stuffing ball, pigs in blankets and moreish gravy, which we asked for more of.

And of course being in Yorkshire it came with a Yorkshire pudding - controversial some might say, but not as far as I'm concerned !

Finally, my other half went for the Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. It was just the right size with it being delightful and rich, and is definitely the bes t way to finish a Christmas dinner. All this this with a couple of pints cost just over £38 which I think is outstanding value.
