Our team are on hand to welcome you aboard before you depart through the picturesque North York Moors National Park. You'll start your visit with a warming glass of mulled wine, before being served a starter of either Winter Vegetable Soup, Classic Prawn Cocktail or Baked Mushroom stuffed with Harrogate Blue Cheese & Walnuts.

For your main course, our Head Chef has prepared Traditional Roast Turkey, Roast Topside of Local Beef or Home-made Vegetable Wellington, all served with rosemary & garlic roast potatoes, sprouts, honey roast carrots & parsnips.

Before you enjoy a freshly brewed Yorkshire tea or coffee and a mince pie on the return journey from Pickering, you have the option of Christmas Pudding, Chocolate & Cointreau Tart or a Selection of Cheeses & Biscuits to indulge in.
