Tea with Santa

Afternoon Tea with Santa at the Orchard Hotel & Restaurant

Delight in the festive season at the Orchard Hotel & Restaurant with our special Afternoon Tea with Santa. This year, we’re inviting you and your family to a wholesome Christmas expereince that blends traditional festive charm with the excitement of meeting Santa Claus. Our event is not just about the tea; it’s a celebration of the joy and wonder of the holiday season, tailored to create lasting memories for both Children and adults. 

As part of our new offering for 2023, your visit includes more than just a culinary delight. Set in the beautifully festive atmosphere of Bramleys restaurant, you’ll be immersed in a world of Christmas wonder. The highlight for many will be the chance to meet Santa in person.

Imagine the joy and surprise on your child’s face as they interact with the jolly man himself, sharing their Christmas wishes and receiving a thoughtfully chosen gift from the North Pole. It’s an encounter that promises to add a sprinkle of magic to your festive celebrations. 

During the event, you’ll also find numerous opportunities to capture these cherished moments. Our stunning Christmas tree, adorned with lights and decorations, provides the perfect backdrop for family photos, creating a keepsake that you’ll treasure for years to come.
