High End Offering: The Beacon

The Beacon is high on the hit list for foodies and even in lockdown they’re delivering the goods – literally! They have two three-course menus to choose from – a meat version and a veggie version, which also comes with lovely extras like petit four and freshly baked bread. The meat option includes slow-cooked short rib with fondant potato and truffle jus while the vegetarian menu has a super-luxurious confit potato, comte and caramelised onion pie. This is a kit so there may be some finishing off you need to do at home, but that’ll mean it’s totally fresh and piping hot. These kits are £55pp, so definitely a treat.

Super Luxury: The Poet at Matfield

People travel for miles around to eat at The Poet at Matfield, and diners have absolutely raved about their Christmas and New Year’s Eve meal kits – it’s easy to see why. They are quite pricey, coming in at £180 for two, but if you want to splash out then this is the place to do it. The eight-course menu includes a bottle of Hush Heath sparkling rosé, as well as ricotta and black truffle ravioli, ‘surf and turf’ with cote de boeuf and whole lobster, and a passion fruit mousse. At the time of writing this, there are only 24 meal kits left to be booked for collection – so you’ll need to be  quick.
