Hog Roast, Wine, Buffet, and Toffee Vodka For Two for £16 at GJ's (63% Off)
Having swooshed in from GJ’s Val d’Isère in the Alps, this eclectic eatery and music venue channels après-ski atmosphere, and specialises in hearty hog roasts. The bar and restaurant has all the cosiness of a rustic lodge, while outside an extensive seating area unfurls with the covered walkways wound round with creeping vines. The extensive menu matches gastro fare to a long drinks list, and a varied buffet card is available for party groups.
The evening's delights will be preceded by hours of careful preparation, as the meat is marinated and seasoned, before being sent sizzling onto hot coals for up to eight hours. Once the hog is crisp and tender, thick slices can be matched to a brimming buffet of rice, potatoes, salad, sauces, and bread. Lashings of apple sauce and a glass of wine each should keep things fruity, and the meal will be followed by live music and a DJ from 10pm ‘til 2am, with a shot of toffee vodka to stoke the mood.
