The Best Places for Christmas Dinner in Sunderland
Miller & Carter
NEWCASTLE ROAD, SUNDERLAND, SR5 1JT
Go all out this Christmas day with an indulgent five course meal at Miller & Carter steakhouse! Promising a Christmas meal to remember, these five courses will have your mouth watering in anticipation for the big day. At £77.95 pp, there’s been no expense spared on this delicious Christmas menu.
For starters you have a tantalizing choice between pan seared wild Atlantic scallops & king prawns, duck parfait & croquette duo or a vegan roasted shallot & armagnac tarte tatin. Then comes the first decadent Miller & Carter touch, a champagne sorbet to cleanse the palate before the main event!
For your main it’d be rude not to go with Miller & Carter’s signature ‘steak experience’, giving you a choice between an 8oz or 12oz 30 day aged prime steak with all the trimmings! Pair that with your choice of steak sauce and wedge dressing then you’re good to go.
If steak isn’t your thing there’s always the classic hand-carved turkey breast. Served up with lemon & thyme stuffing wrapped in bacon, Cumberland pigs in blankets and smoked beef dripping roast potatoes, who could resist this beaut of a plate!
For all of our vegan chums out there, there’s a tasty filled mediterranean-style vegetable risotto topped with onion loaf crumb, root vegetable crisps and sage for you to get your teeth into.
It’s finally dessert time and boy has Miller & Carter got some treats in store for you! We’ve picked a couple of our favourites out of the five strong menu. Top of our list has to be the croque-en-bouche cheesecake! In plain English, that’s a baked vanilla cheesecake with a lush cookie dough base, topped with cream profiteroles and caramel sauce… unreal!
Following that closely and topping off Miller & Carter’s simply A* Christmas offering is the classic mixed fruit & kumquat Christmas pudding. You can’t go wrong with a good old pub served in a warm brandy sauce. Delightful!
TIMBER BEACH RD, SUNDERLAND SR5 3XG
Christmas with a difference! If you want to swap Christmas trees and snow for palm trees and holiday vibes without getting on a plane then The Palm is your perfect Christmas dinner spot! Serving up both traditional dishes and daringly different choices, The Palm’s Crimbo menu is a combination of spicy cajun hits and hearty British classics. Feel free to jump from one to the other across the three courses!
Kicking things off we’ve got some festive loaded potato skins topped with candied bacon & brie cheese sauce – also available without the bacon veggie chums! If you’re looking for something completely different why not try some halloumi fries or a cajun prawn salad.
Main course time and The Palm really have gone all out on variety! Of course there’s the classic roast turkey dinner, roast beef or homemade nut roast… but that’s not what you’re here for. You want to know what specialist dishes The Palm has on offer right? Well, the most unique one has to be the Bahian Coconut Fish Curry, followed closely by the Tandoori Marinated Chicken Kebab. To be honest both sound lush enough to make you change your Christmas dinner traditions for good!
It’s our favourite part of the menu again, the desserts! This time our line-up features another mouthwatering homemade Christmas pudding with a dollop of brandy cream, as well as a vanilla panna cotta, black forest roulade and a chocolate fudge cake. There’s one thing we can guarantee, you’ll be spoilt for choice and going home with a huge smile on your face after visiting The Palm this Christmas!

We’re hitting the ground running with five delicious looking starters to choose from! Our highlights have to be the smoked salmon and prawns and the veggie friendly stilton & peppercorn mushrooms.
The mains are really where Oak Tree Farm comes into its own! They serve up lush carveries all year round, but for Christmas day they’ve really taken their mouthwatering dishes to the next level.
The showcase carvery consists of a selection of succulent 14-hour slow-roasted meats, two pigs-in-blankets, two traditional Yorkshire puddings and all the festive trimmings you can fit on your plate!
Veggie pals you’ve got a scrumptious beetroot, butternut squash & cranberry wellington heading your way! You can even go ‘ultimate’ for an extra £2, upgrading to large plates with 3 Yorkshires and 3 pigs-in-blankets! Woo-hoo!
If you’re not in a carvery mood switch things up with some melt in your mouth salmon & prawns with hollandaise, potatoes and all the vegetables your heart desires.
FINALLY! Deserts again! This time we’ve got another classic Christmas pudding for your traditionalists out there, served with luscious brandy sauce. But, our stand-out easily has to be the billionaire bar! It’s a crumbly chocolate cookie base, topped with a layer of salted caramel and chocolate ganache. To die for!
