Christmas may unexpectedly be being scaled back in many households, but there is still time to give yourself an indulgent treat.
Following the success of the takeaway afternoon tea in the summer, the Blackbird Café at Pavilion on the Park (Kingfisher Road) are offering a festive afternoon tea, available for delivery in the local area up to Christmas Eve.
Two rounds of sandwiches, a small Yorkshire pudding with beef and horseradish, a pig in blanket, two slices of cake (one fruit, one sponge) and a mince pie. A Christmas cracker is also supplied, and a tea bag for the essential accompanying beverage. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available.
The Chippy household have enjoyed these on two occasions. The teenager’s review was “probably one of the best breakfasts I’ve come down to at 4.30pm”.
And, similar to the afternoon tea in the summer, the funds raised will be used to provide free and subsidised meals to individuals and families in need this Christmas. So, a win-win situation.
