Fancy trying something different for Christmas this year and heading out for a Michelin star meal instead of the usual dinner at home? Whether you’ve considered it as a gift for someone special or as a well-earned break for yourself, it turns out there are many purse-friendly options out there.
December certainly isn’t the cheapest month of the year and it definitely isn’t the most stress-free either. Plus, cooking for the entire family can be very daunting to say the least.
That’s why more families are opting to dine out on the 25th. And to help make sure you get the best of the best, for a price that won’t break the bank, events company Eventopedia has released a list of the top ten cheapest Michelin star restaurants across the UK to celebrate Christmas at this year.
While there are 187 Michelin Star restaurants in the UK, only 23 of them offer a Christmas menu on the 25th. But the good news is that you could pay as little as £95 for an unforgettable dining experience.
According to the research from Eventopedia, which was conducted by reaching out to all Michelin star restaurants in the UK and studying their menus, The Woodspeen in Newbury is the Michelin star restaurant to offer the cheapest Christmas feast at £95.
Here, you’ll be served a traditional turkey with trimmings while starters will consist of pressed rabbit terrine and confit salmon with smoked black garlic, celeriac and horseradish remoulade.
The Woospeen is closely followed by Angler in London and Beach House in Swansea, both of which serve Christmas dinner on the 25th for £100 per person.

Explaining the research, Toby Heelis, CEO of Eventopedia said: ‘Christmas is a time which many associate with decadence, but it doesn’t have to always come with a price tag.
‘If you consider that the majority of standard restaurants in the UK will charge an average of £50 for Christmas dinner this year, spending a little extra for something special on Christmas day is well worth the quality.’
