A Michelin star chef has revealed the price of his Christmas dinner experience.

Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck in Bray has opened for Christmas bookings, with a special feast being served from November 29 to December 23.

However, it doesn't come cheap.

Tickets for the nine-course menu titled the 'Christmas Experience' range from £395 to £425 per person.

The three-star Michelin restaurant states on its website: "The Festive period is one full of wonderment and anticipation.

"Join us on the fortunes of Christmas, along the way there’ll be sprouts, chocolate, guilty pleasures, baubles, mulled wine, indulgence and magical transformations.

"However you celebrate it, Yuletide is a time full of memories and emotions."

Despite the high price, this Christmas feast doesn't include any turkey, trimmings or Christmas pudding.

No drinks are included in the price and an optional 12.5 per cent service charge will be added to the end bill.

The menu begins with Christmas Tpples, a nitro-poached aperitifs, before moving on to a pine tonic of botanicals.

For thirds is 'Decorating the tree', a truffled egg, smoked salmon and buttered toast - chicken liver parfait and plum.

Langoustine cocktail is the next dish with Marie rose, tomato and vanilla.

The fourth dish is roast scallops and almonds - with chocolate, kombu and pickled lemon.

'Twas the night before Christmas' is the main dish, coming with short rib of beef, lardo do colonnade, dried fruits, gold carrot and sherry.

'King's venison' brings the main dishes to a close with beetroot, chestnuts, brussel sprouts, black truffle and umbles.

Guests then see the feast come to a close with cheese, nuts and port and lastley botrytis cinerea.

Payment is taken in advance and guests are advised to "book early to avoid disappointment".
