Nothing to lose by asking, but, large groups usually get a discount by having a set meal/reduced menu, as it’s Christmas day it’ll be a set meal anyway, so it makes no difference to the venue whether they sell tables to you and your 50 family members or smaller parties, there’s no saving in it for them, only risk if you pull out and leave them with a empty restaurant. They know they can sell seats at full price that day, why sell to you at a discount?

If you were to chose a less popular day, say 28th/29th, when they’re likley to be pretty quiet, you’ll be far more likely to get a discount.

Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and face your future without fear
