Festive Afternoon Tea

Festive Afternoon Tea

From Thursday 3rd December 2020 13:00 until Thursday 24th December 2020 15:30


This event can still go ahead but with members of your own household only.
We are currently in Tier 2, which means you can only socialise indoors with members of your own household/support bubble. The tiers will be reviewed on the 16th December 2020. Therefore, if you are booking before the 16th December, please ensure all members of your party are from your household/support bubble. Bookings after the 16th December will be subject to the tier in place at that time.

Get in the festive spirit this season with our delicious Christmas themed afternoon tea.

Served daily between 13:00 - 15:30 from Monday 30th November - Thursday 24th December


Full payment is required at the time of booking. All afternoon teas have a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel your booking at least 48 hours in advance you will be entitled to a full refund of your deposits paid. Cancellation within 48 hours of your booking will result in the deposit being lost.
