Enjoy Christmas 2017 at Forte Kitchen

Book Christmas with Forte Kitchen, Winchester

Celebrate Christmas with us and benefit from our award winning customer service and delicious festive menus.

This year we have two different packages to choose from depending on your group size and requirements:

  • 2 or 3 course Christmas meal for groups of up to 40 people
  • Christmas canape evening for groups of between 30 and 60 people

We also offer a private party option where you can enjoy the ambiance of our whole room and enjoy the frivolity of Christmas as a group without having to worry about disturbing other diners. For our private Christmas party option we would just require a minimum of 30 guests or a room hire supplement.

Please see below for our Christmas menus which will be served from November 23 until December 23 in the evenings, Monday through to Saturday.
