Fa la la la la, la la la la! Enough fa la-ing for now; it doesn’t make for a particularly interesting read.
The reason for my festive yet not very tuneful singing is that plans are in full flow for our annual Christmas parties at Wellington Barn and outside catering at McBaile Exclusive, yes we’re very excited.
Last year’s parties at Wellington Barn were a huge success and we welcomed local companies such as Calne Leisure, Goodman Nash from Devises and Northlands Surgery along to celebrate in style. Clients could choose to book tables at one of our group parties or choose to book the venue for exclusive use. We got some brilliant feedback and this year the parties are following a similar vein.
Guests will enjoy a sparkling reception drink on arrival followed by a three course sit down meal and between courses a heads and tails game with a bottle of our house champagne awarded to the winner. Christmas party novelties will be provided on each table and after a delicious dinner the DJ will invite guests to party the night away to your favourite party classics.
Our 2013 menu includes the traditional favourites but in true Dan Wyatt style (our very creative head chef) puts a spin on the classics and makes your mouth water in anticipation, see below for the choices available and get transported to a beautiful Christmas market in Germany where you are wandering around with a mulled wine and a chunk of Stollen:
Christmas Menu 2013
White onion, goats’ cheese and sage soup with a beetroot swirl
Wild Calstone rabbit and pistachio terrine with red grape chutney
Home smoked mackerel, pickled red onion, tomato and fennel salad with a béarnaise sauce
Free range turkey wrapped in streaky bacon, turkey leg and chestnut stuffing, thyme and garlic roast potatoes and turkey jus

Chocolate and salted caramel terrine with honeycomb crackling and chocolate soil

This year at Wellington Barn the Christmas party nights Friday 6th, Saturday 7th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st December 2013 are booking up fast so please contact Harriet Trewby at email@example.com or on 01249 823 222 for more information if you would like to join us for an evening of fun filled festivities!
If you don’t fancy donning your best party outfit for a night out and just want to gather at home with close friends and family then take the hard work out of Christmas this year by letting McBaile Exclusive Catering do all the preparation, and deliver to your door on Christmas eve (yes, just like Santa…) a full Christmas dinner ready to go in the oven.
We’ll dress the turkey, wrap the chipolatas, braise the cabbage and bake the mince pies as well as everything else, leaving you
time to put your feet up and relax on Christmas morning. And the best bit is that there won’t be any messy pans to wash up as it all comes in oven proof, disposable trays.
In the words of our director Rod “Great Christmas food just got simple.”
We can also come to your home or even a holiday cottage and cater for you with a private chef and personable waiting staff to make this Christmas even more special. For our sample menus please visit our website or contact Laura East at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0117 9555 271.
Our Christmas deliveries went down a storm last year as echoed in Irina’s testimonial
Merry Christmas to you and all your team and best wishes for the New Year.
We were very happy with the food to say the least. It was delivered precisely on time by the chef himself; it was great and very special to get in that manner. He insisted on going through all the ordered food which was a very good idea and kind of him.
As for the food, it was delicious!!!! The fact that you took us on board at the last minute and followed our requests was lifesaving.
Thank you again,
Irina Klimova and all my family.”
Merry Christmas all!
