Here’s some of what you can look forward to and enjoy at The Smokehouse over the festive season, as well as a few ideas to give you a helping hand.
The Butchery is now taking orders for a wide range of locally sourced meat for Christmas and New Year. For the more traditional there are bronze or white free range turkeys, available as full birds or crowns and for any number of people. Alternatives include ducks, geese, capons, or our fantastic 28 day dry-aged ribs of beef or sirloin for roasting. Simply call in and speak to our butchery team to place your order. They will also be happy to help with advice on what to order. For information on our opening times and last order dates click here.
Every year we host our Christmas open evening, where we showcase the best The Smokehouse has to offer. This year it is on Thursday the 7th of December, from 4-7pm. Some of our favourite suppliers will be in store sampling their products, including stunning chocolates from Manchester based chocolatiers ITWT and some amazing cheeses from the UK & Europe by Harvey & Brockless, as well as a sample of what we create in our own kitchen & bakery. We will also be welcoming a number of wine and spirit suppliers to wash it all down!
We’ve made present buying easier than ever for you with our range of hampers. This year we’ve extended the range to ensure there’s something for everyone. The Smokehouse Selection is a perfect sample of what we make here, or for those wanting a bit more the Gastronaught is a real treat for any foodie. There’s also the new G&T box showing off the best booze the North West has to offer, available with either Hunters or Manchester gin, while our premium Hickory hamper will make anyone’s Christmas special. You can view our full range of hampers here and order them to be delivered or arrange an in-store collection at a time to suit you. For information regarding last order & collection dates click here.
We also offer a bespoke hamper service, where the contents can be handpicked from the wide range of products we have available in store and packed by one of our specialist hamper team. Our hampers have also been used over the years as perfect corporate gifts for clients or staff. Just visit us in store to discuss your requirements, or alternatively email [email protected].
When it comes to the big day you can’t go wrong starting with canapes. We have all you need from the cups to the dressing and everything in between, and for inspiration see what we offer with our catering menus. As usual, our in-store bakery will be making our own splendid Christmas cake and mince pies by hand, as well as their usual stunning selection of cakes and pastries. For those with more savoury after-dinner requirements we have a great choice of cheeses & biscuits (and even sell the boards to serve them on!).
What’s not to like?!
We wish you a merry Christmas!
