Flight Club

You'll probably be sick of roast turkey by the end of December, so get down to Flight Club for bottomless pizza, as well as, a bottle of prosecco and Winter Pimms with DJs, festive treats and great times.

Take a break from turkey and instead enjoy a yuletide feast of lobster and kale salad, charcoal-grilled steak with paprika sides or, if you can't decide, a surf 'n'turf combo. And to top it all off? Warm cookie dough with oven-baked marshmallows, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and chocolate chip cookies.
