Christmas Afternoon Tea

Two good reasons to try this:

  1. There’s something a bit decadent about celebrating through the afternoon.
  2. It’s all freshly baked homemade cakes, and lots of them.

It could be tea for two – reward for getting all the Christmas shopping done in time. It could be your entire company wanting a change from the usual. Whatever the reason, Christmas Afternoon Tea at the Arbor will leave you feeling full of the festive spirit, and cake – did we mention that already?
