Pub cooks up world's biggest Christmas dinner — a mountain of food for one stuffed with 16,500 calories

Pub cooks up world's biggest Christmas dinner — a mountain of food for one stuffed with 16,500 calories

December 17, 2018

The meal at the George Pub and Grill in Stockton-on-Tees, Durham, includes an 8,000 calorie turkey crown weighing 11lb and 9lb of roasted vegetables.

The feast is made up of an 8,000 calorie turkey, 30 stuffing balls and 20 pigs in blanket

The £90 feed is the creation of the pub’s owner, Craig Harker, 31, and anyone who finishes it in opening hours will get it free.

Craig said: “It’s not exactly your everyday meal. If anyone manages to finish it they would be a legend.

“People come to us for the calories and they won't be disappointed.

“It's part of the fun. People love the challenge of it and people come to us from all over the country.”


In 2015 the pub smashed the world record for the biggest Christmas dinner ever with a 9kg feast, and has beaten its own record by 5kg with this mega-meal.

Craig has to pay for an extra chef to come in and prepare the meal especially for each order, who is tasked with cutting, chopping and preparing 31lb of food from scratch.

The turkey takes four hours to cook and a chef must spend up to five hours preparing, seasoning and taste-testing each component.

The 31lb (14kg) challenge tempted Rochelle Fairley, 25, to have a go at the feast, which must be ordered 24 hours in advance.

Anyone brave enough to take on the challenge will walk away – not only with a gut full of food – but with a certificate as proof of their bravery even if they don't finish the meal.

If food is inevitably left over, diners will be able to box up what's left and take it home for another day.
