You are assured of a Warm Welcome to the G&D for Christmas & New Year 2018
We may go just a bit overboard on some of our Christmas Decorations, but we think this just adds to the magic of Christmas and helps make everybody relax and feel good – You spend a long time working all year, so it is good to spend some quality time relaxing with friends and kindred spirits (of which we have plenty!).
Join us for our special G&D Winter Warmer Coffees, or Homemade Mulled Wine with Leigh’s Homemade Mince Pies & Christmas-themed Homemade Cakes & Pastries, in our Coffee Bar, or even under the giant umbrellas in our large paved Beer Garden on a Bright Sunny day – Well it is South Devon!
An Overview of What's on at the G&D and our Opening Times over the Festive Season are summarised below and also available to download. There will always be up to date details of our regular Live Music and Chef’s Specials for Lunch and/or Evening Dinner, plus Leigh’s Homemade Cakes posted on our Facebook Page and on the A-Frame Blackboards.
FFor our fabulous 2018 Christmas Day Lunch you can join us with a table in the Bars or in the Boatroom Restaurant as you prefer – Pre-Booking is essential of course and our Christmas Day Lunch Menu and Booking Form will be available to view and download here shortly after Halloween in the first week or so of November!
If you have any questions on arrangements, menus, live-music or any other dining or entertainment possibilities for your Party – Or anything at all for Your Christmas and / or New Year Enjoyment – Just give our friendly G&D Crew a call on 01803 832325 and we will do our best to assist and make Your Special Days Really Special.
Our Christmas Day lunch is always traditional and so is our Boxing Day menu, which is another treat at the G&D with our Traditional Cold Meats, Homemade Black Pudding & Chef’s Special Bubble & Squeak or our similar but Trendier if you are under 30 - Swiss Style Rosti….!. Also on Boxing Day we will have our normal lunch menu for those who prefer something like our famous Traditional Fish & Chips with Mushy Peas, or perhaps one of Chef’s Homemade Burgers or something lighter, and a full range of GF and Veggie options if you want something different or you are still a bit full after the Christmas Day excess – Don’t worry if you can’t fit all of these in on the day – As we keep this ‘Boxing Day Specials’ menu going and made fresh, right through into the New Year as they are so popular with our customers!
One of the Maddest and Fun Nights of the Year in Dartmouth is always New Year’s Eve – We will likely even have our Garden Bar open – Weather Permitting of course! - You can see from pictures on this page from previous New Year’s Eve G&D Fancy Dress Party Madness – Join us to do it all again on December 31 st 2018 – even though it is a Monday! So a lot to do before then, but please feel free to let us know if you need any information or advice to help you make plans now to come and see us in your Individual or Group Fancy Dress – you will not be alone – the creative minds and capabilities of our customers in the Standard of Fancy Dress for New Year’s Eve is Simply Outstanding – No doubt this will be maintained in 2018 - BUT equally if you prefer to come in your favourite jeans and trainers, or even the new Christmas Jumper then that is fine too!
At the G&D we always like to help things go smoothly and so on New Year’s Eve we do not sell tickets to rob and try to trap people, when it is so much more fun to walk around the town – weather permitting, and see all of the other ‘sensible’ people in their fancy dress! As usual we will be providing Superb FREE Canapes & Bacon Rolls for our Fancy Dress Customers from time to time during the evening (when they are gone they’re gone!), to help us all keep almost sane and ensure that everybody can enjoy a great night!
