Gordon Ramsey’s Petrus

Good old Gordon Ramsey – he’s got a restaurant in every corner of London. His Belgravia restaurant, Petrus, offers a fantastic Christmas option. Apart from the obvious, the restaurant also offers plenty of festive surprises, with each dish from its Christmas menu using the best seasonal ingredients. Be sure to book though – it’s pretty popular!



If you want to get all of the staples of Christmas lunch you can get it at Motcombs’! From turkey with all the trimmings for those who want to play it safe, you can also pick up something a bit different if you’re in the right frame of mind – such as salmon with pilaf rice and spinach – or you can even go for the fish…


La Poule au Pot

Why not pop into French restaurant La Poule au Pot? The Christmas menu has a heavy focus on haute cuisine – bream fillet served in a white wine and fennel sauce will get you salivating in anticipation. Or, you could try a delicious beef bourguignon from Burgandy region in France. The interior’s somewhat quaint with a ‘paysan’ feel, so you’ll feel like you’re enjoying the authentic French experience.
