Christmas & New Year and Sosban

If there’s ever a time of year when we allow ourselves to indulge in good food and a few drinks, it’s Christmas! Sosban’s Christmas A la Carte and Tasting Menus are full of treats perfect for celebrating the festive season with colleagues, family or friends.


Our Christmas dishes are inspired by memories for Andrew Sheridan’s childhood Christmases such as his mother’s family-famous mashed swede with garlic butter which they ate every Christmas. Andrew takes swede to the next level by roasting it in a salt-crust to seal in and intensify the flavours, serving it with garlic emulsion, pistachio and goats’ cheese taking this humble and underrated vegetable to a new level.


From 1st December you can choose from our Christmas A la Carte menu which features Roasted Pheasant served with bacon ketchup, mushrooms and grains or Ash Covered Venison Loin, with beetroot ketchup, black pudding and blackberries. Vegetarians aren’t forgotten and will savour Potato Cracker, pickled mustard seeds, onion marmalade and cheddar custard or Pumpkin Risotto, toasted seeds and goats’ cheese.


Puddings celebrate traditional Christmas flavours but in Sosban’s unique way! Don’t miss Mince Pie Ice Cream with brandy custard and orange or Coffee Pannacotta with chocolate and coffee textures.


We have two Christmas Tasting Menus (4 and 7 courses) available for both meat-eaters and vegetarians (and for vegans on request at booking). Our sommeliers also offer a thoughtfully curated flight of matching wines each course.  At lunch choose from a 2 or 3 course set lunch.



Meanwhile, if you’re in the mood for a party our clever bar team have created some sophisticated seasonal cocktails including a delicious ‘Just a Bellini’ made with sparkling wine and clementines as well as a warming and spicy Mulled Wine.


Sosban Gift Experiences

If you know someone who loves good food and dining out, but are stuck for what to give them this Christmas, why not give them a Sosban Gift Experience? You can now buy Gift Dining Experiences from our website for our 5- and 7-course tasting menus. You can even add a glass of Prosecco for arrival and a flight of matching wines, or you can buy a Gift Voucher from £50.


You will receive a Gift Voucher beautifully presented in a gift box to wrap up for the tree.
The lucky recipient can then book their meal at Sosban whenever they wish.  (Vouchers are valid for 12 months).


Christmas Gifts – Sosban Hampers and  Cheeseboards!

If dining at Sosban whets your appetite and you want to take a little bit of it home to enjoy during your Christmas celebrations or as a gift for someone special, then you’ll be as excited as us to know that from Saturday 1 December we will be selling Sosban hampers and Cheeseboards. You can buy some of Head Chef Andrew Sheridan’s specialities including indulgent Chocolate and Raspberry Shards and Salted Caramel Fudge, beautifully wrapped they make perfect gifts.  If you’re more of a savoury person you can buy a Sosban Cheeseboard – a quality olive-wood cheese board and a selection of our favourite cheeses.


Watch this space – we’ll announce more details a little nearer the time!
