The Ivy Café in Blackheath is getting festive with a special menu throughout December.

The restaurant is serving up three limited-edition festive cocktails, including the Merry Martini (£8.75) with Monin pumpkin spice syrup, Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Baileys Irish Cream, whipped cream and ground nutmeg, and the GIN-ger fizz (£9.95) featuring Plymouth Gin and lemongrass cordial, topped with Ivy Champagne and a lemongrass stalk. No Christmas menu is complete without Mulled Wine (£6.50); the Ivy is serving it from a cauldron; a perfect winter warmer following an afternoon of Christmas shopping.

Until 24 December there’s a Snowball Fight (£9.25) for grown-ups. The Christmas dessert is a concoction of creamy Christmas pudding ice cream, crisp gingerbread, pine cones and brandy sauce.
