A break from hosting duties should allow you to relax with family or friends, with all tastes catered for, allowing you to celebrate in style.

Whether its traditional turkey roast or something slightly more experimental, we show you the places to dine in style this season, with the best festive menus in and around Cheshire.

Next Door

This Frodsham hotspot opened to rave reviews in May. The impressive career history of the restaurant’s owners, Richard and Vicki, a top chef and sommelier respectively, set an exceptional standard. Seasonal, fresh local produce creates delectable dishes in the intimate setting of Frodsham’s old butcher’s shop.

Starting with the best ingredients, Next Door have curated a fantastic four-course set menu which will run alongside their regular a la carte from the 28th November through December. The menu combines seasonal produce and traditional Christmas dishes with a difference.

Opera Bar and Grill

For authentic ambience, with an internationally inspired exceptional grill look no further than city staple, Opera Bar and Grill. The 400-seat restaurant is housed in a grand Grade II listed building. The statement building features a distinct neoclassical Greek façade and mixes an industrial scheme with added glamour. The piece de resistance is the ‘secret’ music bar on the first floor which has recently housed a series of famed Ronnie Scott jazz nights.

For the festive period, Opera have created a dazzling range of seasonal set menus to enjoy on their live music event nights every Friday and Saturday. Full details can be found here.

UBER recommends the Las Pampas Steak from Argentina, an Opera signature dish. The meat is 150 days cornfed for a delicate, moist flavour.

Cholmondley Arms

Set deep in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, adjacent to Cholmondley Castle. The Cholmondley Arms is a friendly, country dining establishment with an exceptional offering of craft beer and dedicated gin bar.

Alongside the festive set menus, the Choldmondley Arms is hosting a cosy fireside drinks and nibbles with a festive choir on the 20th December.

UBER Recommends Burt’s blue cheese profiteroles as a sumptuous starter from the festive menu.

Closer to home is the beautiful Belle Epoque, a restaurant and event space, in the heart of Knutsford. The Mooney family have owned and run the iconic ‘Petit Chateau,’ for over 43 years.  Testament to their success, the restaurant gained 2AA rosettes for exceptional food and service. Several preserved, dramatic, period design features within the main restaurant add a touch of character to your dining.

The Belle Epoque comes alive at Christmas; roaring open fires, twinkling lights, magnificent festive decorations all creating a magical seasonal atmosphere. Diners can enjoy a spectacular festive menu for lunch or dinner. Alternatively, the dedicated events venue offers fantastic fun and entertaining celebration evenings for Christmas parties or friendly get togethers.
