Behind the scenes of Christmas Afternoon tea

With Head Pastry Chef Sarah Frankland and the pastry team at Pennyhill Park, an Exclusive Hotel & Spa being in full Christmas spirit, we caught up with them to give you a tasty insight into this year's Christmas afternoon tea served in The Ascot Bar.

Scrumptious Sandwiches

Enjoy a Christmas themed sandwich collection including salmon gravlax and cream cheese on beetroot bread, roasted vegetables with chestnut pesto on focaccia bread and the classic roast turkey and stuffing on cranberry bread.
As an added bonus, we've created our very first mini honey roast ham Wellington.

Traditional Seasonal Scones

Freshly out the oven are our selection of seasonal scones including classic plain and festive spiced orange fruit.
Make sure to try them with our special mulled wine and plum jam topped with delicious clotted cream.
