Gravy is a necessity with any roast dinner but how do you fancy a particularly special and sparkly variety of it this Christmas?

The Fox Under the Hill Hungry Horse pub in Shooters Hill is offering guests the chance to upgrade their traditional sauce with some extra festive twinkle.

The pub, famous for its generous portions, has added the glam glitter-infused gravy to its menu and it can be ordered with Christmas meals.

Ashish Patel, general manager at the Fox Under the Hill, said: "Christmas is one of our favourite times of the year, as it’s the one time we can go all-out on festive decorations, twinkling lights and Christmas cheer.

"We’ve seen some wacky food trends over the years, and our glittery gravy is no exception – it’s the perfect way spread festive cheer in December.

"We’ve had some great reactions from guests so far as they add a bit of seasonal sparkle to their Christmas meals with our glittering gravy.”

The glitter gravy is currently only available at this one pub, but the bizarre festive accompaniment could be rolled out across 292 Hungry Horse pubs up and down the country.

If you can’t wait for that and want to make your own, edible glitter is available from most supermarkets and you can even buy gravy glitter online.

Usually used in baking, the shimmery glitter can be added to gravy to make it sparkle.
