feeling flush? famous celeb hotspot chiltern firehouse is offering a christmas menu for £195 per head, including white truffle starters, lobster and duck liver, organic turkey with all the trimmings and fillet steak so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. throw in their famous crab doughnuts and the chance to spot the a-list, money well spent we think.
duck and waffle
located on the 40th floor of heron tower, duck and waffle serve unbeatable city views alongside its christmas lunch. at a not-so-eye watering £85 ahead, you can enjoy a five-course menu full of bacon-wrapped dates, chestnuts and manchego, truffle soup, lamb in place of turkey(!) and chocolate fondant and mince pies to top it all off.
