If you are looking for a fabulous place to eat this Christmas break please let me recommend the Carpenters Arms at Felixkirk, just outside of Thirsk! We had our work Christmas dinner there last week and the food was every bit as good as I’ve come to expect from one of the Provenance Inns group. The pubs themselves are always so cozy and welcoming and the Christmas Menu at the Carpenters was fantastic!
From the specials I chose the Teriyaki Salmon. The salmon was perfect, I get a real bee in my bonnet about over done salmon but this was divine! The wasabi mayo wasn’t too strong and the light pickles and crunchy squid all combined to make a joyous plate!
The Turkey Christmas Dinner was everything you could ask for, excellent meat, luscious gravy and a great selection of veg to round out this seasonal classic!
Ah, dessert! I, of course, went with the Chocolate Marquise and I was not disappointed! Rich, light and delicious! The pistachio ice cream and caramelised bananas mixed things up nicely! The Christmas pudding and Ginger Puddings also got rave reviews at our table!
