Pub giant JD Wetherspoon (JDW) will not be offering ‘traditional’ Christmas dinners on its menus for the second year in a row.

In its place, diners can choose a turkey breast slice filled with sage and onion stuffing, served with roasted Chantenay carrots and parsnips, Maris Piper mash, pigs in blankets, peas and gravy.

Other dishes available include a creamy mushroom risotto, chicken and stuffing burger, or a brie and cranberry burger. Customers can also have a brie and bacon burger with sides, which JDW introduced last Christmas.

The festive menu also offers diners small dishes such as a chicken, stuffing and cranberry panini, and a halloumi and cranberry panini.

Small plates

It also has small plates where customers can choose three-for-£10 including pigs in blankets, breaded brie, mini smoked salmon salad and soup of the day.

For dessert, there is a two-for-£5 deal including chocolate orange mousse cake and Christmas pudding.

There will not be one set price as this will vary by dish across JDW’s 900-strong estate.

The pubco pulled Christmas dinners​ from its menus last year after its decision to stop serving Sunday roasts.

Last roasts

The final JDW roast dinners​ were as cheap as £6.75 including a drink, and served from noon until 11pm.

A spokesman for the pubco said at the time it understood some customers would be disappointed, but it “had to make decisions which were right for the company”.

JDW spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “All Wetherspoon pubs stopped serving a Sunday roast and it would be difficult to bring a roast back just for the Christmas offer.”
