A true taste of Christmas returns at Bar+Block

CHRISTMAS is back on the menu at Bar+Block in Leamington.

Like other restaurants, the Parade eatery was unable to serve up its Autumn/Winter menu, including festive dishes, last year due to the pandemic.

Manager Julia greeted us both with a warm welcome upon arrival. Seating us to our table in this very tastefully designed modern restaurant, Julia could not of been more helpful, offering us recommendations from the menu.

The three course festive menu was one of the tastiest meals I have had dining out in a long while.

The choice of a starter was a difficult one. As soundied great, but I opted for a chestnut and white mushroom soup finished with truffle infused oil croutons and a drizzle of cream which was tremendous, which I followed by the Festive Turkey Feast with all the trimmings.

Turkey ballotine wrapped in streaky bacon and filled with pork stuffing, served with beef dripping roast potatoes, honey-glazed parsnips and carrots, seasonal greens, a pig in blanket, yorkshire pudding and lashings of red wine gravy. I will certainly be looking to copy some of this for my own Christmas dinner this year.

I finished off with the Chocolate Orange Dome. A chocolate dome layered with chocolate shortbread, a light chocolate mousse and an oozing orange centre, covered in a chocolaty glaze.

At £26.95 for the three courses, or £23.95 for two courses, this menu is a winning festive menu.

Superb food, fantastic staff, great surrounding – Christmas hats off to all at Bar+Block.
