Don’t be fooled by the name – Wembley Park newcomer Bread Ahead delivers so much more than crusty loaves. With a focus on all things baked, the bright, airy restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, offering a broad menu that includes pizza and rotisserie dishes.

Highlights from the set menu include Lechon Cuban pork belly with mojo criollo followed by winter berry cheesecake, for the bargain price of £19.95 for two delicious courses.
This casual and fast-paced restaurant specialises in fresh, homemade pasta and sauces – just like Nonna used to make back in Napoli. Simply select your favourite pasta, choose from a mouth-watering list of sauces, top it with cheese and tuck in. For a special treat, try one of chef Simone Remoli’s signature dishes, such as fresh lobster linguine – delizioso!
High-street favourite Prezzo is offering a super-value deal this Christmas, with a delicious set menu priced at just £16.50 for two courses, or £19.50 for three – plus 25% off a bottle of prosecco.

Get that Friday feeling every day at this American diner and cocktail bar, which promises fun, friendliness and an extra-large helping of good vibes. The three-course set menu is a steal at £22.99 and is packed with the tasty dishes you’d expect such as burgers, ribs and nachos. Treat yourself to a festive cocktail to get the party started – how about a cranberry and orange gin spritz?
If you’re catching a show at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, its on-site restaurant Studio 5 is the perfect venue for pre- or post-show dining. This festive season it’s dishing up a blend of classic and contemporary cuisine in modern surroundings, created with locally-sourced ingredients.
