Where To Have Christmas Day in London

Mistletoe, mulled wine and meltdowns over an undercooked turkey? Christmas day is great but all too often it leads to squabbles over mashed tatties, hours slaving away in a kitchen, and moans from hangry uncle Brian. Not this year, we've rounded up the best pubs and restaurant in London to celebrate Christmas day - think all the cheer and none of the fear.

Stunning Quaglino's has entertained everyone, from royalty through to celebrities, and is perfect for something a little different come Christmas day. Descend down the stairs to find a unique Art Deco-inspired space, with a three-course set menu to keep you fed and watered.

For something a little different this Christmas day, head to Steak & Lobster where you'll enjoy a turkey-free lunch of surf and turf croquettes, charcoal-grilled lobster with garlic butter and key lime pie within one of the restaurant's stylish venues.

For an indulgent Christmas feast in an opulent, classically British setting, look no further than Kensington's Cheneston's Restaurant at the Milestone Hotel. Serving up a five-course meal, you can expect delicious dishes such as duck liver parfait and spiced orange marmalade, wild mushroom ravioli with Madeira and truffle, fillet of beef wellington in red wine jus and clementine truffle with sherry ice cream.
