Thanksgiving dinner in Brighton, UK

I'm looking for a restaurant (or hotel) that can make a private American-Style Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, November 27th (American Thanksgiving day) in Brighton, England, UK for about 40 people, mostly Americans. Of course, I've already contacted the hotel/restaurant where we are booked to stay that day/night but I'm searching for a Plan B option as well. As you might think, it will center around roast turkey and a menu designed by the culinary-informed of our group, heavy on the traditional items. Any ideas about who might be able to accommodate us? Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

  1. This year, our company is having its annual Christmas party and sleepover at The Lansdowne Place Hotel in Brighton. The boss is very choosy about food for this affair, so I'm assuming the kitchen/chef must be pretty good. Whether or not they're up to doing Thanksgiving, I don't know. Our group is over 100 people, so I don't think your 40 would be a problem.

    As an American, these days, I find it fairly easy to find the usual ingredients so I'm sure they could manage... turkeys have to be ordered ahead of time as they are not plentiful until Christmas. Good luck. I'd love to hear where you end up and what you eat.

    1. Maybe Mama Cherris Soul Food Shack is worth a look? They've got some pretty decent American food, albeit focused on the Southern side of things:
