We love Christmas down at the Pipe, it’s our favourite time of year. Our dusky candlelit rooms are as atmospheric as can be, and the food is as comforting as it comes. December may not be as we know it this year, but we're determined to make it as welcoming and cosy as ever.

Following the news that we are to be placed in Tier 2, and therefore only permitted to serve tables of singles households, we will no longer be serving the usual extensive Christmas Menu. Instead, we’ll make sure the Mulled Wine is piping hot and have a few select Christmas Specials on our menu, as well as Roast Turkey on Sundays.

We may not be able to accommodate large parties this year, but how about an online Wine Tasting with your friends/family/colleagues instead? We're offering private tastings over Zoom as a way of celebrating the festive season. Full details can be found below.


You can take a look at our Christmas Menu by clicking on the green button to the left – and hop over to our bookings page to book your table.

Online Tasting Parties

We may not be able to host our usual Christmas parties, but how about an online get together?


We’ve been running Zoom events for a few months now and we’re here and ready to host your own, private online tasting.


So how does it work ….

  • We deliver samples to your door the day before the tasting (usually 8 different wines)

  • We’ll send you a Zoom meeting link to join at the allocated time

  • We’ll talk you through the wines, stopping every now and then to answer your questions

  • Afterwards, we’ll email you a link to a video of the tasting in case you missed anything


The cost of the tastings is £40 for 2 people or £25 for 1 person (minimum 10 guests).

You can select from any of the themes below:

  • An Introduction to Wine Tasting

  • Old World vs. New World

  • Festive Wines

  • Classic Varieties
