Christmas 2019

Come inside our Lido this Christmas and experience a very unique atmosphere …

An outdoor pool, steam rising above, the smell of pine from the Christmas trees, with soft lighting and fantastic smells coming from our wood burning ovens… Christmas at Thames Lido is simply magical.

At the Lido we write our menus daily. We have an extremely close relationship with all our suppliers and love to base our menu around the best produce available each day. Our menu at Christmas is seasonal (although our boundaries are a little looser than some) bringing fabulous ingredients from Spain, North Africa and the Middle East as well as from local producers.

The Lido is the perfect location to switch off, relax and indulge. Our experienced staff can help match suitable wines from our fantastic list, to your menu choice on the day.

We can organise drinks receptions, cocktails nights, music in the private function room, cash/card bar facility, tailor made parties. You name it and we’ll work with you to create your perfect Christmas party.

Our offerings for Christmas 2019

For parties 8 or over

Christmas Sharing Menu; a very unique offering
Available 12pm – 3pm and 6pm –10pm

Our menus change on a daily basis so there’s always something new to try, but why not let chef take control and broaden your palate with a no menu experience?

You will receive 3 starters, 3 mains and an abundance of home made ice creams for dessert. Both starters and mains cover 3 different dishes (meat, fish, veg) and are served on large banquet plates in the middle of the table; simply help yourselves & dig in. Very Spanish, very unique, VERY Lido.

The sharing menu is priced at £37.50 per head for a 3 course meal.

Christmas Tapas Offering
Available 12pm – 10pm

This offering features 7/8 different tapas dishes; they are delivered to the table bit by bit and cover all food groups. It’s a wonderful spread and brings with it vibrancy and colour, incredible taste and smell.

The menu is priced at £25 per head.

Christmas Party Menu
Available 12pm – 3pm and 6pm –10pm

We realise not everyone likes the element of surprise, so this Christmas A La Carte menu lends itself to guests who’d like to choose their food. It has 4 options from each section, and parties of 8 or over would be required to pre order so the chefs can prepare and order in the ingredients.

This menu is priced at £37.50 for 3 courses
