  • Brunch With Santa 2024

    £15.00 per person

    Prepaid

    30 Nov - 24 Dec 2024
    Following last year’s hugely successful Brunch with Santa, we’re delighted to bring them back for another year. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting families from near and far and can’t wait to welcome back the big man himself for another month of fun! We have a range of dates to choose from but do be careful as they sell out quickly. On the day you’ll enjoy a hearty brunch for adults (hot drink included) and we more than look after the wee ones with food & drink and of course a visit and gift from Santa.

    Great pizza and the appetizers were delicious. Beer and mixed drinks were very good. Only reason 4 stars instead of 5 is the noise level. It was LOUD!

    Rooftop terrace is lovely with great views of the castle. Food and service were excellent. When it got a chilly, we were offered fleece blankets. Great place overall.

    I absolutely loved our server, Sab. My 2 friends loved their pizza and one loved his burger. I tried the gf pizza but those are ever tasty. I liked the fish and chips last time and will try that healthy salad next time. Ambiance was amazing. We loved the gas fire! I’ve already recommended this place to many friends and co-workers! We are there often for work from the states.

    On arrival given a table in the shade, asked if we could move, huffy but then agreed it was ok. Ordered drinks, strawberry daiquiris, no we don’t do them!! Half of the drinks menu is made up of strawberry daiquiri. Ordered gin instead, drinks poured and waited on delivery. When asking for the bill had to ask twice and took forever, rooftop terrace was not that busy but they blamed the Taylor Swift brunch on middle floor for the hold up. Really disappointing

    The rooftop terrace was lovely. Sadly we waited on our food for over 45 minutes for 2 appetizers which put a damper on things.

    Great view from open air terrace (book in advance), great beer
    Cold Town HouseResponded on 2 June 2024
    Antoniop, We really appreciate your positive review! It’s great to read positive feedback, especially when it involves our beer which we are super proud of! Especially the varied flavours we incorporate in our freshly brewed in-house Tank beer. And we couldn’t agree more about pre booking for the terrace, after all we were voted in top 12 roof terraces in UK. However we always keep some tables available for walk ins, on a first come first served basis. We look forward to your next visit, Best, Nikk Stevens Senior Deputy GM

    Lovely welcome by staff member who directed us to the roof terrace. We ordered the brisket fries and chips and dip, both delicious! Lovely atmosphere made even better by the view of the castle and sunshine!
