We’ve got beef
Turkey isn’t for everyone, which is why we have some tempting alternatives, like our tender rump of British beef, basted in horseradish and wrapped in prosciutto for maximum succulence.

A sweet finish
If you’re going to indulge at the end of a meal, then you’d better make your pudding a real showstopper. Our hand-finished Belgian white chocolate mousse snowball wreath is the perfect choice.
