This festive season, take a moment away from the hustle and bustle of the high street and enjoy a festive two-course Christmas lunch with all the trimmings in the Pavilion Tea-room at Bodnant Garden.

Each lunch costs £24.50 each and includes either a traditional turkey dinner or a vegan festive loaf dinner, Christmas pudding with brandy sauce or sticky toffee pudding and mince pie and coffee to finish.
