December 2020 and January 2021 plans at The Crown & Anchor in Ham

At the time of going to press we do not know what the rules will be in December. All being well, we hope very much to open again on Thursday 3 December. The events below are, of course conditional on this actually being allowed to happen.

Assuming that, we will thereafter be open on Tuesdays (supper only); Wednesdasy to Saturdays (lunch and supper); and Sundays (lunch only).

Gift vouchers

Whether we are open or closed we can instantly solve your Christmas present dilemmas. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone special this year, Crown & Anchor gift vouchers can be personalised for a luxury stay, or a specific value to be used in the restaurant. Vouchers can be purchased by email or phone, to be emailed to you for home printing, or sent by post in a gift envelope. They are valid for a year, so there is plenty of time to use them – the perfect way to say thank you, or to give friends or relatives a treat to look forward to.

Special offer: for every £50 worth of vouchers purchased before 3 December receive an extra £10 voucher, either for yourself or to be added to your gift.

Christmas celebrations

Why not join us this festive season for the perfect festive meal? We may not be able to have big office parties, but our festive menu is the ideal way to share a special time with smaller gatherings of family, friends, or work colleagues (up to six people depending on prevailing rules). Our menu will be £24.50 for 2 courses, £30 for three courses, and is available from Thursday 3 December until Thursday 24 December, lunch and supper, Tuesday to Saturday. Pre-ordering is required.

Special offer: If you book before 3 December, for the festive menu Tuesday to Thursday, lunch or supper for four or more people, you will each receive a free glass of fizz with your meal.

New Year’s Eve

We will be a hosting a five-course tasting menu £60 per person to include a glass of champagne on arrival. Optional wine flight at £35 per person. Advance booking is required – please do so in good time to avoid disappointment as we expect to be very busy.

If you fancy building up a bit of an appetite then we can recommend this walk which will take you from Hungerford to the Crown & Anchor and (unless you are going to be picked up) back again by a different route.

Do keep an eye on our website for all Covid-related trading changes and restrictions. We will ensure a warm and safe welcome for all, and very much hope that we can continue to serve you and cheer you during these difficult times.
