Christmas is always magical at the L20 Restaurant. Year on year we have always looked forward to welcoming our guests into the restaurant to relax in the festive atmosphere and savour our delicious Christmas menu.

Our hope is that this year we will soon be able to be arranging for our guests to return and do exactly that. In light of the current guidance from the Government regarding social distancing, we are currently unable to commit to, and confirm, any parties larger than 6 people. We are at present more than happy to field any enquiries you may have and also make provisional bookings if you wish to do so, however no booking shall be confirmed until we ask for a deposit.

We will be delighted when we are in a position to start confirming your Christmas bookings but please understand that this will only be possible in light of a change in Government advice. The safety of our guests, students and team members will always be at the forefront of any of our decision making.

In the meantime, please feel free to browse our festive offering and all being well, we look forward to welcoming you to the restaurant and sharing the festivities with you.

For any further questions or enquiries regarding Christmas at L20, please email: danielle.cox@hughbaird.ac.uk
