Christmas parties can be stressful at the best of times. Whether it's the venue, dress code or simply trying to side-step the inebriated intern, they can easily become more of a chore than anything.

But that doesn't have to be the case. How about ordering in some top notch grub to your door and avoiding the ghastly middle man? You save money, time and the energy it takes to round up the troop of merry men you call your colleagues to be in the one place at the one time – which is decidedly harder than it should be.

Here's how you do it...

1. Dillingers

Dillingers has built up a sterling reputation over the past few years, and how could it not?

Whether you're keen for finger food like their sumptuous popcorn chicken, or proper hearty meals like this sirloin steak with all the trimmings, Dillingers is sure to put a smile on your colleagues' faces, and leave a lasting impression afterwards.

3. Brother Hubbard

Brother Hubbard have taken a new approach to cooking classic dishes, by adding new flavours and styles to already well-loved tastes. And they seem to be upping the ante this Christmas with a wild selection of new meals to satisfy any foodie.

Pictured below is their take on a winter's meal – Swedish meatballs with a cranberry sauce, Jansson's Temptation, braised red cabbage & a kale, walnut, pomegranate salad, served with a wild mushroom stew for the vegetarians. Also pictured are some of their new festive treats...

9. Pacino's

People who say they don't like Italian food are just lying to themselves. Everyone adores Italian food, and by default that means everyone loves Pacino's.

Pacino's hand make their sauces, dressings, doughs and breads every single day - living by the mantra that fresh is best. Well, they're certainly not wrong. While their pizzas and pastas are some of the best you'll ever have, their hors-d'oeuvres completely deserve a round of applause too. Take a bow, Pacino's, take a bow.
