If you want to enjoy a festive meal with friends, family or work colleagues in December, this Big Deal gives you the choice of having lunch or dinner during the week or at the weekend.
It’s an appetising menu with lots of choices designed to appeal to everybody.

‘Buon Natale’, as they say in Italy.
