Eating Out This Festive Period – A Wood Fired Guide!

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but wood fired ovens are so delightful! ♪ ♫ ♬

Christmas and New Year give us the perfect excuse to celebrate and spend quality time with family and friends. A lot of entertaining and hosting happens around this time of year and sometimes it’s quite nice to treat you and your family to a restaurant meal where the stresses of cooking and the piles of washing up are left to the professionals!

We have been busy compiling you a list of restaurants that not only are getting rave reviews but also have lots of festive food on offer. What’s more – they all have one of our G Series commercial wood fired ovens!

Polpette, Dorset

Now with two restaurant locations in Poole and Southbourne, Polpette serves authentic sourdough Neapolitan pizzas out of our G Series commercial wood fired ovens. They also have a huge selection of tapas/anti pasti dishes ensuring there is something for everyone! With a daily changing specials board (cocktails included!) and a super cosy, low-lit atmosphere, we think a visit to Polpette would be the perfect meal to have with your loved ones.
