The POD – the ultimate festive dining experience

The POD – the ultimate festive dining experience

It’s safe to say that as a nation we’re going to have to countdown to Christmas a little differently this year. Socialising with family and friends has always been a Christmas highlight, with those weeks before the big day the ideal time to catch up with loved ones.

With new Covid-19 restrictions introduced to England this week however, spending time with those closest is proving impossible for many. But, here at Mere Court Hotel, we have the solution!

Introducing The POD at Mere Court

The latest rules state that those in Tier 1 and Tier 2 can meet people from outside their household as long as they abide by the rule of six and keep their gathering outdoors, which may not be a great idea at this time of year. That’s where our new dining experience comes in…

The POD is a unique, exciting and completely outdoor dining experience that’ll make those festive gatherings with family and friends extra special. It’s exclusive, luxurious and private, and provides a safe and socially distanced space for you to enjoy with up to six of your relatives or friends.

Outdoor dining – whatever the weather

Thanks to its ventilation and heating, the POD is a comfortable outdoor dining experience whatever the weather outside.

It’s the ideal setting for enjoying the best food (courtesy of our AA Rosette winning team) and great company this festive season, whether you’re indulging in a pre-Christmas get-together or celebrating a special occasion. The POD is the perfect place to pop the question; celebrate an engagement, birthday or anniversary; enjoy a romantic dinner; or wine and dine business associates.

In the POD, you’ll also enjoy a room with a 360° view. The POD is perfectly positioned in our stunning landscaped gardens overlooking our beautiful private lake.
