Here at The Miller goose forms the centrepiece of our Christmas Day menu because it is so rarely served in British homes these days and because we’re always looking to offer something that’s not the easiest to recreate at home.
Our Christmas and New Year offerings are packed with delicious festive food and our convivial relaxed atmosphere. Bookings for Christmas Lunch, Boxing Day Lunch and New Year’s Eve are now open.
Christmas Eve dinner & Torchlight Descent
Join us for dinner or a warming mulled wine after your torchlit walk and carol singing. This is a spectacle like no other locally at this time of year that brings our two villages together. Processions start from the railway bridge in Goring and The Coombe in Streatley on Thames. From either side of the river Thames, the community plus tens of thousands of visitors, all bearing natural flame torches, descend to the recreation ground in Streatley. The gathering around the bonfire is rounded of with carol singing. Processions begin from their starting points at 6pm. Make a night of it and book a hotel room too!
Christmas Day lunch
We start with festive canapés then bring you a 7 course menu, plus Miller bread, coffee and sweet treats. We encourage you to savour this special day and the celebratory fare, and to make yourselves at home. We’re not ones for trying to turn tables, so fear not, the table is yours for you to dine at your leisure with loved ones, family and friends.
We are closed for dinner on Christmas Day so that we can enjoy time with our two young boys and the staff can celebrate with their nearest and dearest.
Example only: Christmas Day lunch menu – the 2017 menu & price will be finalised in early autumn
Boxing Day lunch
Take the weight off and enjoy Boxing Day lunch without the washing up. The perfect festive family lunch to round off the festive celebrations. Choose from a two or three course lunch depending on how much room you’ve got left after yesterday’s feast!
Example only: Boxing Day lunch menu – the 2017 menu & price will be finalised in early autumn
From 1 December and in the run up to Christmas, our 3 course party menu will be available for pre-booked groups joining us for lunch or dinner. Come see us for your team lunch or business Christmas party, or bring a client along to say thank you for their business throughout the year. Book your table while we still have some availability.
