Christmas Lunch in Hampshire/Sussex?
As it turns out, my partner and I will be spending Christmas Day by ourselves as it's been decided that this year the family will get together on Boxing Day. As an Argentine myself, we celebrate Christmas Eve so I'll probably be making a special meal for both of us on that day which means I won't be in the mood for cooking on Xmas day.
Does anyone know of a good place for Christmas lunch in the Hampshire/Sussex area? Traditional with a twist would be good.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
I've eaten at the Meadow and Sevendials in Brighton. If either are doing lunch they could be a very good bet (the former better than the latter, if you have a choice).
I've not eaten at Drakes, also in Brighton, but read good things.
And, still in Sussex, Ockenden Manor. CH contributor "fat boy slim" recommends the place (or does over at egullet in his alter ego of David Goodfellow). :-)
Based on a meal at the Harrogate offering, Hotel du Vin would be a safe, if unthrilling, bet.
