You will find the somewhat eccentric yet incredibly inviting Parcel Yard on London Road in Leicester. Part of the Steamin’ Billy pub group, it offers a traditional British atmosphere in a large and eclectic interior. There are several different areas for dining and drinking; fun and lively with enough space to prevent overcrowding and plenty of visual interest with vintage and retro touches. Filled with lovely old sofas, mismatched dark wood furniture and lots of lampshades this is the perfect Sunday hangout.
Alongside the usual menu of big salads, sandwiches, burgers and a la carte, they are offering a Christmas Party menu or a Festive Buffet throughout December up until Christmas Eve.
Fun and festive food at really good prices
The Christmas Party menu at The Parcel Yard features a range of dishes such as, for starter, hot chicken and chorizo skewers with pimento dip and salad or roasted onion soup topped with goat’s cheese crostini. For main course you could order the traditional turkey Christmas dinner, of which there is a popular vegetarian version, or a Yuletide risotto with roasted butternut squash with chestnuts, onions, cranberries and crisp sage. The dessert menu offers boozy mince pie cheesecake or chocolate brownie with cinnamon ice cream but if you fancy something lighter there is clementine and Prosecco jelly with chocolate orange wafers.
The Festive Buffet is available for parties of 10 or more and has a range of finger foods that are perfect for your Christmas party. Amongst the selection are pigs in blankets with mustard dip, red onion and brie tartlets, cauliflower fritters with roast garlic and paprika mayo as well as pork belly bites with mulled wine glaze.
