Christmas at The Mowbray is a magic occasion! The splendor of the building - both inside and out has made this beautiful setting one of the most sought after urban venues in the region. At Christmas time we host a huge locally grown and cut fir tree at the entrance of The Mowbray and we have four huge wreaths adorning our walls.
The Mowbray is luxuriously historic with gentle styling and a story behind even the smallest item including of course - bespoke Sheffield cutlery for your Christmas Feast! We dine by candlelight and the twinkling of lights, the clink of toasts between friends and an awe inspiring feast awaits!
2021 will be our fourth Christmas season. After magical festive times in 2018 and 2019 and a slightly 'different' Christmas in 2020 (over 200 people enjoyed The Mowbray Christmas at Home!) we are looking forward to hosting some special times again inside The Mowbray this year - with some spectacular feasting showcasing the best in seasonality matched with the indulgence and tradition of this special time of year.
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.
A big change this year is our cocktail service - with a super special Christmas Cocktail edit including Christmas Punch Bowls - giving you the option for a really wonderful extra treat for your guests for arrivals, pre and post dinner and maybe even something lovely to raise a toast with. 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.
