The special menus, published on and on offer at facilities across England, vary slightly from prison to prison, but most offer up to four different lunch options to inmates.

At HMP Winchester and HMP Isle of Wight inmates have the choice of turkey of salmon en croute and there is a vegan option. Meals come with all the trimmings, including pigs in blankets and sprouts.

The Prison Service said the festive menus were prepared at no extra cost as they were funded out of existing catering budgets.
