Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

The snow is here!! Love it! Ok..that's enough of that...Last week at Stewart & Co. At The City Library we had a wonderful Christmas Lunch with all the trimmings.

At The City Library (just off that hell we call Northumberland Street) & sample some truly delicious Winter Specials:

Chase away the winter blues With a delicious GIANT Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows, Whipped cream & Oreo's on the side. Mmm...

Fancy a warming Tot with your coffee? You can now upgrade your coffee or hot chocolate with a warming - & festive! - Whiskey, Brandy or Baileys.

She's out of her tree...

Hi all, it's Steve here...Head Cook at Stewart & Co. At The City Library.

Just a quick oneto let you know what seasonal treats we've got in store for you this week! Nothing says "Christmas" like a beautifully decorated tree...and I can tell you that we've definately got one here..My boss decorated it, and to be honest...she's a bit pedantic about her decorations..(Don't tell her I said that...) I have to admit it looks great though (Don't tell her I said that either!)

So thought I'd better create some lovely festive food to compliment her O.C.D...I mean hard work. So from Sunday we've got a wonderful Christmas Lunch Menu, with our own Butter Basted Roast Turkey (straight from our own butchery) plus all the trimmings...Pigs in Blankets, Homemade Stuffing...the works. Not forgetting a tasty Mushroom Wellington for our Veggie friends!

So, why not come along and give our festive cafe a try...and don't worry, we'll do all the dishes so there'll be no Christmas leftovers to worry about! ;) Steve
