Every year about now, DFS start pushing their Christmas delivery, the shops start filling the shelves with advent calender’s and we all start feeling the stress of the Christmas rush. One thing you can look forward to though, that is generally left to someone else to organise, is your works night out. They’re probably organised by now, but we’ve put together a list of some restaurants in town that are offering a festive feast that won’t break the bank. Ideal if you and your work mates want to have your own night out away from the boss.
You don’t want to be the one who’s the talk of the office come the new year, so maybe save the prossy for this night.
