I have had tons of press releases sent to me but none mentioning this, I would hazard a guess Jebel Ali Club will be doing it and possibly Rivington Grill. Might be worth checking with Reform the new place at the Lakes.

literally just got a press release from Whistlers, they are doing a corporate lunch at 295 a head but it is a minimum book of 30 people. Ocean View Hotel.

The Ivy will have one.

Going to The Ivy is a bit of a lottery at the best of times, but they should be able to get a 'Christmas Fayre'-type lunch right........

Thanks for the replies, I think Jebel Ali club might be a bit downmarket but I'm dangling my hook in the water with the others mentioned thanks :-)

Would that be the one where they forgot to use BCC on their email and sent everyone a hundred plus email addresses?

Sorry I misread. That was from Wheelers. Never heard of Whistlers.

So far the only place I've managed to find that's offering xmas lunch prior to xmas eve is the Courtyard Marriott in DIP (handy because we're based at DWC airport). Although Carters in Wafi Mall are doing one on Friday (sic) 21st.

Whistlers is pretty popular with the population in that area but I haven't been.

Goalposts have changed. Now my boss isn't bothered about the xmas theme, just a lunch on a Thursday with unlimited house beverages offer. Anyone know anywhere that does that, there will only be about a dozen people (not me I'm flying home that day).

Rivington is EXPENSIVE but she did reply quickly and with a lot of detail :-) Actually the best 'deal' so far is Whistlers who are offering a set 3 course lunch (choose beforehand from a good range) for 120 per head inc unlimited soft drinks and unlimited house beverages bolt on 3 hours for 150.
