Years ago in Britain the Christmas dinner always used to include a roast bird, and or another roast meat. Traditionally the bird was Goose until the new-fangled Turkey arrived from America in the 16th century. It is said that Henry VIII was the first English king to enjoy turkey. But these days people chose other alternatives – such as Roast Pork, a Rib of Beef or a Crown of Lamb.

And remember we also have a large range of cooked and prepared meals on sale which can be used over the holiday period to help with lighter bites or quickly needed meals. Add these to your shopping basket along with some seasonal treats so you’ll never be caught out by the arrival unexpected family or friends.
