our festive afternoon tea

proud to be the pioneers of the festive afternoon tea in cornwall…

At The Greenbank we’ll be transforming our famous afternoon tea in Cornwall with added festive twists and a little sprinkle of magic. Eat, drink and be merry with three tiers of Christmas treats, a side of sea views, and a warming glass of mulled wine.

Our festive afternoon tea is served in the Water’s Edge restaurant throughout December. So all you have to worry about is pulling the crackers, sipping a few tipples and catching up with friends or family. Please note that in December, we will only be serving our festive teas.
