Christmas unfolds at In Horto, a woodland wonderland, where the festivities begin with a choice between the comforting warmth of mulled wine or the crisp embrace of non-alcoholic unfiltered apple cider. Picture a mouth watering In Horto creation – baked Tunworth, truffle honey, and confit garlic – emerging as a culinary gift from the wood-fire oven.
In Horto’s main course becomes like Christmas wishes come true – the Turkey crown with all the trimmings radiates holiday tradition, while the baked cauliflower with four cheeses, accompanied by light, creamy potatoes, adds a delightful and cozy touch to the festive celebration. Amidst the clinking of glasses and the aroma of the very best mulled wine in the city, this shared holiday meal becomes a canvas of togetherness, painting memories with strokes of laughter, love, and the joyous spirit that unites hearts around the table.
In the heart of these woodland-inspired surroundings, the shared Smokey Old Fashioned weaves tales of aged bourbon, bitters, and the gentle embrace of smouldering wood, crafting a drink that mirrors the enchantment of nature’s quiet elegance. Within the captivating ambiance of this setting, the expertly curated cocktail menu, a testament to the mixologist’s passionate artistry, truly stands out. With a genuine love for his craft, he brings the very essence of Christmas into each cocktail, creating a delightful and festive experience that perfectly complements the unique charm of the surroundings. The diverse array of drinks, from classic favourites to innovative creations, adds an extra layer of magic to the overall experience.
The grand finale at In Horto beckons with a choice between a not so traditional tiramisu, a splendid coffee-infused delight, or a seasonal homemade apple cranberry crumble, evoking the warmth and nostalgia of Christmases past.
In Horto’s dedication to excellence shines through in thoughtful wine pairings, promising a memorable and tasteful celebration.
In Horto intricately crafts a festive tapestry within the Southwark Quarter where each bite tells an enchanting story, and every sip is a toast to the spirit of Christmas.
