This event coincides with the Usk Reindeer Parade, so you can leave your car here after the event and stroll across to see the Christmas Parade!  Afternoon Tea is a delight any time of the year but at Christmas time our festive afternoon tea is a real treat giving you a break from all the shopping and frantic preparations in the run up to Christmas.

Our festive afternoon tea is a beautifully presented selection of festive fancies, mince pies, freshly cut sandwiches and homemade cakes. Refreshments are provided by an assortment of fine teas served in traditional china cups. If you really want to get into the Christmas spirit, why not add a glass of Champagne or mulled wine?
