Order the bird from the conveniently located hotel next door to avoid disappointment I guess, or collect myself.
I love cooking so doing shed loads of roasties and pigs in blankets and carrots and and and and is quite exciting.
I wanna come to your gaff Christmas Day.

Default Re: Cold Turkey

Used to order in every year and invite round all our friends who were staying in town and didn’t have family around. As mentioned Room Service usually releases a Christmas brochure with the delivery menus from all the hotels.

Never had any problems or mishaps, I’d recommend it if there’s a large group of you. Plenty of leftovers too. I noticed Jones The Grocer are doing it this year too.

Parents are visiting this year so not sure if we’ll order in or just go out. We’ve got a crappy little oven in our current apartment that will struggle to accommodate a proper turkey. Going out would be easiest but I’d miss all the leftovers to pick at in the following days.

I meant mainly for veg and things...Turkey resting is critical and the hardest thing for me to do given I like food hot, not warm or very warm etc. Resting steaks, birds, anything...kills me a little inside.

Nah, Mummy doesn't want to and most places I expect are hugely overpriced and filled with vacuous ***** on Christmas Day.

Easy. The Eloquent Elephant are doing it with all the trimmings for 795 or 895 or something for 6 people.

I can walk there, have a pint with everyone, collect the food and walk home.

Thanks for help everyone.
