A Cornish garden centre restaurant is getting ready for Christmas as it prepares to launch a new festive menu.

Dobbies, Lelant is offering family dining experiences, starting on November 1 and will include a ‘Santa’s Breakfast’ and a ‘Festive Afternoon Tea’.

Santa’s Breakfast is a chance for children aged between three and ten to take part in activities to get into the Christmas spirit. Not only will children receive a gift to take home, but there will also be a chance to meet the main man himself, Santa Claus.

Families can expect festive entertainment from Santa and his elves whilst tucking into a traditional breakfast of pork, or Quorn sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns and baked beans or opt for a breakfast roll. All breakfasts are served with a choice of apple juice, orange juice or water.

Dobbie’s restaurant is also offering an afternoon tea with a festive twist including salmon, cream cheese and chive and honey roast ham and mustard finger sandwiches in a mix of white and grain bread, jam scones with Cornish clotted cream, blackberry delice, fruit and cream tart, carrot cake and a mini macaroon.

Sarah Murray, who develops Dobbies’ festive line-up, wants to make this year one for customers in Lelant to remember. She said: “Restaurant experiences at Dobbies are a chance to spend time with the family in a relaxed setting that involves zero cooking.

“Our Santa’s Breakfast and Festive Afternoon Tea events in Lelant are a great way to feel festive as Christmas approaches. The restaurant team thoroughly enjoy hosting these events and can’t wait to welcome customers.”

Santa’s Breakfast runs from November 25 through to December 24 and is priced from £9 per adult and £13.99 per child.

Festive Afternoon Tea experiences run from November 1 and are priced at £8.50 per child and £13.50 per adult.
