Time To Think About Your Office Christmas Party?

Father Christmas

It may only be July, but we guarantee the vast majority of offices are already thinking about their office Christmas party and if everyone else is thinking about it, that means you need to be thinking about it too. While organising the office Christmas party may sound fun, we know that if you’ve been left the tough task of booking a fantastic night out for Christmas, the pressure can mount up.

Pleasing an entire office full of people is nothing short of difficult but if there’s one thing we’ve learnt, it’s that a night offering a little of everything really does do the trick. While Linda in accounts may want to dance the night away, Ian in HR may just want to socialise over a good meal. So why not kill two birds with one stone and offer a night that includes both.

Here at Marygreen Manor, we offer the ultimate Corporate Christmas Party Package. Here at our fabulous venue that is the most incredibly manor house, we provide private room hire for you and your party. All guests will be met with an on-arrival drink (guaranteed to put smiles on faces from the very beginning) not long before they’re met with an incredible finger buffet. This always pleases as it allows everyone to eat and relax as and when they want. It’s perfect for encouraging a large team to mingle a little more too.

Once the buffet has been enjoyed and no doubt demolished by everyone, the evening entertainment starts in the form of a disco. With your teams tummies full, and a few drinks down, we guarantee that every single one attending your Marygreen Manor Christmas Party will spend the rest of the evening dancing the night away, and you? Well, you’ll receive all the credit for the best office Christmas party yet. Call 01277 225252 for more info and please note a deposit of £28.50 per person will be required upon booking.


Keep Organised For A Stress-Free Christmas!

Christmas 010

Being such a popular venue in Essex for Christmas Parties, and even Christmas Day gatherings, we know too well the importance of getting yourselves organised for Christmas and as December seems to have popped up out of nowhere, we thought we’d look at some top organising tips to ensure you’ve got everything sorted and in place, ready for you to relax and enjoy Christmas Day to the max.

Get the Christmas Cards written – it always feels like a project in itself to write cards and send them off in time so now is the perfect time to do it. Grab your address book or even your phone call list and use it as your Christmas Card list. Simply go through in alphabetical order and count up everyone who you’ll be buying a card for. You might also want to add a few extra special cards for special family members too. You could even make a saving by using second class stamps if you send them within the first week of December. Can’t bring yourself to write them out all in one go? Then sit down and write a few each evening.

Think of weight when buying presents – if you’re going to be posting presents, then we advise you have a little think about shape and weight. Ideal presents for posting include clothes, dress jewellery, cuddly toys, vouchers and even magazine subscriptions. You might also want to look at things that get sent for you such as hampers, flowers and wine. These types of gifts usually include very well priced postage too.

Stick to your present list and budget – this is something that seems to go ignored year after year as people inevitably go overboard. This year make a promise to yourself that you won’t over spend. You’ll stick to your budget and for once, not spend the rest of the New Year paying for your Christmas presents. If you don’t have a lot of money, then why not think of being a little more creative? Children, especially, love creative gifts, appreciating what you’ve made for them and is often the case, they’ll no doubt be overwhelmed by presents on the day anyway so instead, give them something to truly cherish. For others, why not try getting just one special present instead of several others.

There are of course a million and one other tips you could try to keep yourself organised ready for Christmas but we thought these were the best of the bunch and perfect for freeing up time and money for you to enjoy perhaps a delicious Christmas Day meal here at Marygeen Manor.

Christmas Here At The Marygeen Manor!

Enjoy The Finer Things In Life This Christmas At The Marygreen Manor!

The turning on of the Brentwood Christmas lights has certainly started the season off and in good festive fashion, everyone is now getting in to the Christmas spirit. If you didn’t manage to make it to the high street in time for this light up, have no fear as Shenfield will be having their annual Christmas Fayre this coming Sunday along Hutton Road between 1pm and 5pm. The event will be celebrating Christmas with a whole host of festive entertainment, different activities and even a number of different market stalls for everyone to enjoy. What’s more, they’ll even be an ice rink, a snow globe and a stage hosted by the fantastic Phoenix FM. A number of local businesses will also be taking part, getting involved in a number of the activities in order to celebrate the approaching holidays with On a Plate even hosting a Santa’s Grotto. It’s days like this that really help you to start winding down and enjoying yourself over everyone’s favourite holiday of the year.

Here at the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant however, we’re going that extra step further and making December all about Christmas with a whole host of events. Take a peek right here:

Pre-Christmas menu – From the 1st December through to Christmas Eve, we’ll be hosting Christmas lunch and dinners. Here we’ll be offering a very special Marygeen Pre-Christmas menu at just £17.95 per person for lunch (Mon-Sat) and £22.95 per person for dinner (Mon-Fri only). This will all be set in our beautiful Tudors Restaurant.

Corporate/Private Christmas Parties – When you’re looking for a truly exceptional Christmas party experience, there really is nowhere else to go. We have a range of packages to suit any company including private room hire, reception drinks, festive buffets or three course meals and even £500 bar tabs. What’s more, all this from as little as £39.50 per person.

Join-a-party Nights – The “Best Christmas Parties Around” are back guys. Whether you’re looking to cut some rug on the 8th December, 15th December or even the 16th December, we’ll be hosting party nights with the amazing Tony Covell, to include a delicious three course meal and a fun packed evening of music with all the regular party novelties you’d expect at Christmas. These nights begin at 7pm and finish at 11:30pm. They’re the perfect night out for groups of 4 and above. They’re fantastic value at £49.50 per person too.

Christmas Day – What sort of hotel and restaurant would we be if we didn’t offer to take the weight of Christmas Day off your shoulders and serve you a delicious one right here in our Tudor Restaurant? Our Christmas Day experience really is a first class service, offering an exceptionally well-presented four course meal for £130 per person. Children up to the age of 8 are just £65.

Boxing Day – While Christmas may be over, the celebrations are only just beginning and here at the Marygreen Manor, we’re offering a delicious Boxing Day meal (three courses of course) in the, as always, magical atmosphere of our stunning Tudors Restaurant for just £65 per adult and £35 for child under 8. So while some might be feeling a little down after the fun and festivities of Christmas have ended, here at the Marygreen Manor, we’ll ensure the magic hangs around for a little longer.

Twixmas Break – There is of course always New Years Eve to think about but that lull in between can often be a little less than fun, unless of course you get to enjoy a Twixmas Break here at the Marygreen Manor. That’s a three course meal for two, an overnight stay and a full English breakfast the next morning, all for just £99. This break is always a popular one as it gives everyone a little something to look forward to between the real big nights and celebrations in December.

New Years Eve – Last but most certainly not least we have of course our rather fabulous New Years Eve celebrations where we guarantee a night of raucous fun and frolics kicking off with complimentary cocktails in the lounge bar before a sumptuous four course meal in our Tudors Restaurant. You’ll also enjoy some awesome music thanks to our resident DJ until 2am and all for just £89 per person.

For more information on how you can celebrate the festive period here at the Marygreen Manor, simply contact us today on 01277 225 252.

Enjoy A Twixmas Break!

With November just around the corner, the end of the year is close by and what does that mean? Well, it’s that dreaded time of year where much anticipated Christmas antics appear to up and leave as fast as they arrived. With Christmas frivolities over before they began, the majority of the nation and more importantly Essex are left feeling a little, how should we say, sad. While some look forward to the New Year and the countless party invites that often brings, we know only too well that time in between the holidays can often feel a little less than fun which is why we decided to introduce our famous Twixmas Break!

With some people going back to work, others will be fortunate enough to have time away from work which offers them the perfect opportunity to enjoy our Twixmas Break right here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant. So what does our Twixmas Break consist of exactly? Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that for just £99 you can enjoy overnight accommodation right here at the Marygreen Manor for 2 but that’s not all. For that £99 you’ll also receive a delicious 3 course dinner and a full English breakfast the next day too. This is an exceptionally special offer at the end of December and one we advise you book before you find yourself disappointed. This is incredibly good value for money, especially considering the fact that it’s based on two people sharing one of our deluxe garden rooms. Available for arrivals on or between the 27th and 30th December, we advise you call us now on 01277 225252.

Give yourself and that special someone, something to enjoy after the hustle and bustle of Christmas with the Marygreen Manor Twixmas Break.
