Festive Afternoon Tea

Holly Loftus
10th November 2023

What do you love most about Christmas? Is it the family gatherings where Monopoly comes out the cupboard for another year, the Christmas markets perfect for a winter date night, or festive events that take place during the build up to the big day? Whatever your favourite thing about Christmas may be, we know for certain that one thing we all look forward to at this time of year are the delicious treats.

So, we give you permission to start using the phrase “go on then, as it’s Christmas” because here in Hertfordshire there’s something yummy waiting for you, and no, we’re not talking about a box of Quality Street…
