Dia de los Muertos has its origins stemming from around 4000 years, but the Spanish brought Catholism to Mexico and incorporated the ancient traditions to coincide with the Catholic observance of All Saints Day (November 1) and All Souls Day (November 2). Images of calacas (skeletons) and calaveras (skulls) are common. They are always colourful and laughing and are not represented in a macabre way.
The Mexicans celebrate the lives of the departed and believe they will revisit every year throughout the festival time. A feast is prepared which includes special dishes for the occasion. We have prepared a Festival Menu to celebrate the most important festival in the Mexican calendar.
Please take your time to enjoy the food as the dishes are cooked to order and some may take time to prepare.
Celebrate your Dia de los Muertos dinner with a rare Tequila, wine, champagne or one of our many exceptional beers. Take time to peruse the Bar to look at our exciting range of drinks
The menu is available on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th November. View the menu here and call 01325 467555 to book/
