The Royal Silverdale Festive Menu

Whilst you’re enjoying your stay at Holgates Silverdale, why not check out our family-owned restaurant situated right in the heart of Silverdale? This year at The Royal, we have truly outdone ourselves with our Christmas menu, bringing you three spectacular courses designed to tantalise your taste buds with their locally sourced, fresh ingredients.

The menu has been designed with a range of dietary requirements in mind, so everyone can enjoy a fantastic Christmas meal this year. With delicious vegetarian starters such as a breaded brie, and a wonderful chestnut, spinach and blue cheese en croute for main, there is something to suit everyone at The Royal. And of course, the main selection includes a locally sourced roast turkey with all the Christmas dinner additions you love, from duck fat roast potatoes to homemade stuffing and seasonal vegetables.

As for pudding, you can indulge in an absolute Christmas staple: the Christmas pudding. Served with a rich brandy source, The Royal Christmas pudding is a true festive delight. There is also a homemade sherry trifle and an after eight dinner mint torte available from this wonderful selection of deserts.

Christmas Cocktails

As well as a festive-themed menu, The Royal Silverdale also features festive Christmas cocktails throughout the month of December. This 12 days of cocktails includes a new Christmas-themed cocktail available every two days. From the Peppermint White Xmas to the Apple Pie on the Rocks, you are certain to find a Christmas cocktail to suit you.

Why Father Christmas Loves the Lakes

So, why is Father Christmas making the long trip over to visit us here in Silverdale? Well, it’s because he just loves the Lake District! It’s the perfect destination for lovers of all things Christmas, and there’s no one who loves this season more than jolly old Saint Nick. From the quaint, adorable villages that are scattered throughout this gorgeous chilly scenery, to all the fantastic Christmas activities and events that will be going on throughout the entire month of December, no part of the country embraces Christmas like the Lake District.


You can celebrate Christmas alongside us here at Holgates. With so many accommodation options to choose from – from camping pods to caravan pitching – you can have your very own home away from home for the most wonderful time of year.
