Festive treats in the Wharf tea room at Bodiam Castle

Festive Afternoon Tea anyone?

Visit our tea room during the festive season with family and friends and you'll find some delicious seasonal treats in store. Book a Festive Afternoon and get your celebrations with family and friends 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.

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.
