Join us at The Wild Rabbit this Christmas for a very special celebration.
Relax in the comfort of our rooms; enjoy award-winning, seasonal food from our Michelin star Executive Chef Tim Allen and raise a glass or two by the fire in our welcoming bar. This year we are offering a special three-day Christmas package, as well as an indulgent four or five-day offer for those looking for a longer break.
The celebrations begin on Christmas Eve, when we shall be gathering around our double-sided fireplace to enjoy afternoon tea, mince pies and hot toddies. In the evening, join us in the bar for live music and a complementary pre-dinner cocktail, before we welcome you in to our dining room for an indulgent five-course Tasting Menu.*
On Christmas Day, each guestroom will receive its own stocking from Father Christmas, before you head down to the dining room for a champagne breakfast to start the day.
Our dining room is the perfect setting for a Christmas Day feast. Using locally sourced and home-grown produce, our Executive Chef Tim Allen will welcome you to an extravagant, traditional, five-course Christmas lunch.**
In the afternoon there will be a treasure hunt in the village, with prizes to be won for the best team, before we tempt you back to the bar for hot toddies, mulled wine and mince pies; all that is needed on a crisp Christmas afternoon.
In the evening we shall be laying on a seasonal table of cold cuts, pork pies, terrines and much more, followed by board games by the fire and a festive quiz for those with a competitive spirit. The prize? A complementary treatment at the Bamford Haybarn Spa.
Our Boxing Day brunch is a favourite with residents and locals alike and we recommend that you book early.***
A traditional family Christmas always includes a pantomime and this year The Little Theatre at Chipping Norton is putting on a Boxing Day production of Robinson Crusoe. The pantomime starts at 4pm and tickets cost £25 per person. Please let us know if you would like tickets – early booking is essential.
On Boxing Day evening, we shall welcome you back in to our dining room for a selection of lamb hot pot, glazed duck, sirloin of beef and Tim Allen’s famous chocolate Yule log, with entertainment provided by a fantastic table magician.
We are all looking forward to Christmas at The Wild Rabbit and hope you will be able to join us to celebrate this very special time of the year.
