    I had mine this week, wasn't very good. The potatoes were hard as bricks and the gravy was like water

    How much does xmas dinner cost you and is it a kids sized meal or are you allowed to pile your plate up?

    Now that I'm diagnosed Gluten Intolerant I'm stuffed - no Yorkshire Puds or gravy

    Mine is free. We work for it!

    Dinner in two sittings. Half the kids and half the staff have dinner with the other half of the staff serving. The remaining half of the kids are out playing.

    Second sitting the staff who ate then serve and the staff who served eat.

    Then all the kids go out to play while all the staff clear the dining hall and set up for the lunch time supervisors and kitchen staff to have their Christmas lunch.

    We don't have anything like that. One school has food delivered which is heated and served - they do a Christmas Dinner but we are never offered it, paid or not. Mind you, don't think I want it.
    The other school has the same company but they come in and cook it from scratch - it looks nicer but again we never see it.

    We've had it running here. Nice turkey dinner but the dessert cake was cold - it had been chilled in the fridge - and the custard was lukewarm. Not a nice combination.

    We had our yesterday and it was lovely mind you we got a new cook recently and the lad is doing lovely stuff. It costs 2 for children if they are paying and 3.40 for staff if paying. Lunchtimes supervisors are free but they have to work for it .
