London - This Christmas, Conrad London St James is celebrating the festive season with a wonderful range of indulgent food and drink menus across Blue Boar Restaurant, Emmeline's Lounge, and Blue Boar Bar. The venue is perfect for intimate dinners, glamorous drinks receptions, lavish afternoon teas and luxurious banquets. With a prime London location on the doorstep of Westminster - the hotel is wonderfully placed for guests to enjoy the Christmas markets at Elizabeth Street and the Southbank Centre, the delights of Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, and carol services at Westminster Cathedral.

Christmas afternoon tea in Emmeline's Lounge
The Winter Afternoon Tea at Conrad London St James is the perfect way to warm up on a frosty day, to celebrate the festive season and treat loved ones to a quintessentially British treat. The seasonal menu has been carefully curated by Executive Pastry Chef Diana Sedlakova incorporating traditional Christmas flavours with contemporary culinary techniques.

To start, a selection of savoury bites will include Truffled duck and clementine rillettes on toasted brioche, followed by sandwiches with festive fillings such as Roast Norfolk turkey with stuffing on walnut and sultana bread, and Honey and mustard Wiltshire ham on cranberry bread. Cakes and pastries will also follow the festive theme, with a White chocolate and cranberry yule log, a Mont Blanc tartlet with chestnuts and cassis, and a Christmas cracker cake.

The afternoon tea is served alongside an extensive range of teas from Harney & Sons (£35pp), while those looking to fully embrace the festive spirit can also enjoy free-flowing G.H. Mumm Champagne (£54pp).

Fine festive dining with Blue Boar Restaurant
From 27 November to 23 December, guests of Blue Boar Restaurant will be able to enjoy Executive Chef Michael Riordan's festive set menu including starters such as Hendrick's Gin cured salmon with salt baked beets, and main courses of Roast Norfolk turkey with chestnut and cranberry stuffing and Charred Hereford beef short rib with shallots and a bone marrow crumb. For dessert, there will be tempting choices such as Plum tart with honey ice cream and pistachio crunchy and Pressed apples with drunken blackberries and elderberry sorbet.

Furthermore, whether looking to hold a banquet for 150 in the Whitehall Suite, or a dinner for 12 in the private dining rooms of Blue Boar Restaurant, Christmas event menus can be tailored to suit any occasion. Guests can choose from a wide selection of festive canapés, bowl and finger food, or Christmas set menus to create their own bespoke dining experience.

For Christmas Day itself, Blue Boar Restaurant is offering a luxurious festive dinner, starting with Champagne and canapés, followed by a decadent five-course meal. Honey roast parsnip with apple cappuccino will be followed by Smoked duck with foie gras terrine and Cornish brill and lobster cannelloni. Guests will then be able to choose between Norfolk Bronze turkey or Scottish Angus beef fillet, followed by a selection of festive desserts including Christmas pudding, Chocolate and cherry trifle, and Sticky toffee pudding (£110pp).

Ring in the new year at Blue Boar Bar
Blue Boar Bar is a sophisticated take on the traditional British pub, and throughout the festive season will be the ideal party destination in the heart of Westminster Village, with dedicated event planners ensuring Christmas parties to remember for up to 250 people. Furthermore, with live entertainment throughout the evening, Blue Boar Bar will provide the perfect destination to enjoy a drink before the London fireworks display, or to countdown to the new year and see out 2017 with a bang.
