Private Dining and Celebration

Festive Party Dining at Christmas

A private dining occasion with an exciting buzz - come visit TerraVina if you are looking for a fun and festive place to hold a Christmas celebration

Our Function room, “The Rutherford Bench”, is ideally suited for small or medium size parties. It can accommodate up to 36 guests.

At Christmas time the room is cosy, festive and beautifully decorated in contemporary festive style.. this festive menu does not offer turkey or Christmas pudding, as many guests have told us they prefer less obvious Christmas fare for a party, but if you would like a traditional Christmas menu then please contact us directly to discuss.
