Loch Fyne’s latest campaign is all about Fish-tivities and trying something a little different this Christmas for your festive celebrations. Obviously turkey dinners are super traditional and delicious but, during December, I’m sure we all get a little bit *done* with them when they make an appearance almost every week during the run up to the big day!
We were really excited to check out some of the delicious dishes from the Loch Fyne Christmas menu. We headed along on a quiet Sunday evening which made a nice change to crazy Friday and Saturday nights. I think I’m going to make more of the Sunday night early dinner, it was lovely. I kicked off with mussels in a garlicky sauce with some super soft bread, I love mussels and this wasn’t a disappointment. Luke ate off the a la carte menu and tried the fish soup which is served with aioli and gruyere and was super tasty (I obviously tried some!)
And, of course, this festive fishy menu will be the perfect alternative for all the pescatarians out there. Loch Fyne, of course, also do steaks and other meat dishes so it can be a great idea for a location if you want to treat the non-meat eaters in your life to more than one dish to choose from. We all know the veggie and fish options can be a little bit limited at this time of year because Christmas is quite meat heavy!
This incredible salmon dish was my main, served with dauphinoise potatoes and creamed leeks, it was so rich and delicious I’d definitely recommend it. Crispy salmon skin is just too good.
I finished things off with their ‘festive’ brownie which I ordered expecting a usual choccy brownie. Because, how festive can a brownie really be? Well, I was massively surprised because this baby tasted like mince pie filling and chocolate brownie in one and it was an absolute revelation! Served with freeze-dried raspberries and vanilla ice cream this was an amazing way to finish off a really delicious meal.
Will you be trying something from the Loch Fyne Christmas party menu for your #Fishmasdinner? I’d really recommend it! There’s a huge selection of dishes and it’s great value. The prices include 3 courses for £24.95, 3 courses including a glass of Prosecco for £27.95 or 3 courses including a glass of Joseph Perrier Champagne for only £30.95!
A huge thank you to Loch Fyne for inviting us down to try their Christmas menu, we were provided with a complimentary meal in exchange for this review and feature.
