Christmas 2020

Christmas at The Grange will be a little different this year…

We have had to cancel our normal CHRISTMAS PARTIES but have replaced them with Festive Lunches and Dinners. Our RESTAURANT will be open as normal for tables of up to six and our CHRISTMAS BREAKS and CHRISTMAS DAY LUNCHEON remain unaffected. Sadly, it won’t be possible to make our NEW YEAR’S EVE party anything like as good as it should be (you’re not allowed to dance to Elvis!), and for that reason we have decided to take a break this year.

Rest assured, our parties we will be back with a bang in December 2021.
(You can take a look at what we would normally offer here.)
In the meantime, we have some other things organised this year…

Music, Christmas and Supper

Monday 7th – A Latin flavour comes to Christmas with Cuban pianist and singer, Milly Riquelme. Guest starring guitarist Tom Toomey.

Monday 14th – A Classical Christmas. The wonderful warm feeling of hearing a quartet of stunning singers recite our favourite carols. In this socially distanced world, this is the next best thing to a hug.

Monday 21st – Break out your Christmas Jumpers and get ready for a night of the Great American Songbook. The Rat Pack meets Dorset.

A Christmas Stay 2020

Christmas Eve
A warm welcome awaits you on Christmas Eve. Spend the afternoon unwinding in the lounge in front of the fire with a good book and a glass of something to take away the winter chill. Dinner in the evening is served in the restaurant overlooking the beautiful floodlit gardens. You might like to enjoy the splendid candle-lit Midnight Mass at nearby Sherborne Abbey; a night cap will await you on your return home in the early hours.
Christmas Day
After a restful night’s sleep, awake on Christmas morning feeling refreshed and ready for a tempting Grange breakfast. Once the presents are open, why not take a stroll around the pretty village of Oborne before you enjoy a traditional seven-course Christmas lunch with all the trimmings. Later, sink into a comfortable sofa for coffee, mince pies and a board game. If this sounds too energetic how about a little snooze in front of the fire? A buffet supper will be served in the evening, the perfect way to round off a wonderfully festive day.
Boxing Day
On Boxing Day, more eating is the order of the day! Breakfast, followed by a three course traditional luncheon, with a candle lit buffet supper in the evening. If you feel up to venturing out, how about a trip to nearby Montacute House & Gardens or a visit to Cerne Abbas to see the ‘Rude Man’ chalk carving or the Wessex Morris Men’s Christmas Party. Not energetic enough? You could take a trip to the coast for the West Bay Wallow, an annual fancy-dress swim around the marina at West Bay!
