Bistro Christmas Hampers

a present fit for a foodie

At Christmas time the bistro kitchen is busy pickling, fermenting and cooking tasty treats that you can wrap up in a festive hamper and put under your Christmas tree for that special someone. 


From homemade chutneys, pistachio biscotti or Christmas cookies, you are spoilt for choice! Not to mention the unique selection of olive oils, vinegarettes, garnishes and wines that have been carefully sourced from around the world.


Choose your own selection of goodies or ask the team to help recommend a Christmas hamper.

warming festive drinks

cosy & comforting

It may be cold outside this Christmas but our heart-warming hot drinks will help keep you toasty warm.


Try our new white hot chocolate with a scoop of chai powder and look out for our warm winter spiced apple cider with star anise. 


Let's not forget our famous firepit that will help bring a spark to those dark winter nights. Stay inside and watch the burning embers or brave it outside and let the fire light up the starry sky.
