Enjoy a festive treat in our tea room

Christmas lunch place setting

Visit our tea room during the festive season with family and friends and you'll find some delicious seasonal treats in store. Book a Christmas lunch and get your celebrations off to a great start.

Festive spices

As we prepare for Christmas there's plenty of activity in our tea room kitchen. Marilyn, our baker, will be busy baking her delicious mince pies and locally well-known Bodiam Festive slice.

The gentle aroma of these delicately spiced treats is always a reminder that the festive season is here.  Enjoy one with a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a pot of tea and we're sure you'll be tempted to come back for another.
