We’ll make sure our beautiful 8 metre long bar complete with our antique drinks cabinet is well stocked with all of your festive favourites ready to toast the moment!
The Kitchen is at the very heart of The Mowbray. It’s where we can show our passion for local ingredients and our non-compromise attitude towards quality. Our chef team start prepping for the busy Christmas festivities months in advance - which means Christmas cakes, Christmas puddings, pickles, chutneys and boozy treats are already in full swing. We have created traditionally inspiring menus to indulge and delight - as well as to satisfy the most Christmassy of hungers! Our aim is to impress, surprise and shake up what is sometimes considered the norm for Christmas dining!
Our Christmas pudding recipe is our Chef’s own, perfected after several years of trials! We use dried cranberries, dried apricots, candied orange & dried figs as well as fresh apples, and loads of fresh orange zest and juice. We use fresh Sheffield eggs, brown sugar and plenty of booze - brandy and cider. Our ‘making’ process takes 3 days of chopping, grating and soaking to create our perfect pud, after steaming until the sugars start to caramelise, they will be left to mature for around 6 weeks. This is just enough time for the flavours to harmonise, and for the juicy, boozy fruits to soak the pud.
Eggnog, Mow-balls, mulled cider, spiced wine - leave it to us to create your ultimate Christmas tipples list! Tab behind the bar - no problem - pay as you go - of course! We can also arrange drinks packages to include welcome drinks, toasts, wine for the table et al!

By request and in the name of keeping our menus totally cost effective for you - we've invested into and developed our own online 'The Mowbray at Home Shop'. We were being asked over and over by our customers if they could collect from us rather than pay for any third party delivery fees - so we've taken the plunge - we're also offering a door to door delivery as well.Find Out More
