Christmas and New Year 2018 – 2019

Christmas Afternoon Teas

The Christmas season may well be the season for giving, but it is also lovely to be able to treat yourself too! What better way to indulge yourself, and friends or family, than to head to us at The Old Bell Hotel for a delicious Christmas Afternoon Tea in our fabulously festive and wonderfully cosy lounges. Imagine yourself sitting in front of our roaring fire with a refreshing cup of tea, or even a glass of bubbly. Whether you are spending the day shopping, taking in the Christmas markets or just catching up with friends, a Christmas Afternoon Tea at The Old Bell Hotel is the perfect way to relax and a truly indulgent treat. Let us spoil you in a beautiful festive environment where you can put the hustle and bustle of Christmas to one side, even just for a couple hours.

Our Hotel is a wonderful place and setting to get together with those who are special to you, and our team here would love to host your Afternoon Tea. We really do have the most charming of settings. The Old Bell Hotel s a Grade 1 listed building; in fact it is England’s oldest hotel and sits proudly next to the Abbey in the heart of the historic, vibrant Market Town of Malmesbury. Resplendent in all it’s glory, The Old Bell Hotel is elegant and charming – within easy reach of Tetbury, Bath, Bristol, Cirencester, The Cotswolds and London.

In the most festive of locations, you would be hard pushed to find a better environment to enjoy some delightful treats and indulge in a beautifully made Christmas Afternoon Tea. Our Tea includes any hot drink with complimentary refills, with a selection of tasty sandwiches, light pastries, scones with jam & gorgeous clotted cream, snowman macaroons, mini mince pies and Christmas logs – all expertly handmade by our very own pastry chef. We also have handmade chocolates with the option of a cool glass of Prosecco for that extra sprinkle of festive cheer.

If you or any of your party would like to make a night of it, stay in one of our cosy and luxurious bedrooms from £120.00 per night. If you or any of your guests do opt to stay over, Malmesbury is steeped in rich history with lots to explore. Built on the site of a 2,800 year old Iron Age fort, there are so many local places to discover. Or, you may just like to sit with a coffee and relax.

We would welcome the chance to talk through any questions you might have or discuss the Christmas Afternoon Tea menu, or dietary needs, in more detail. It is so important that you feel confident and relaxed and that you know you and your family or friends will receive expert attention – whether for an Afternoon Tea or a larger party.

Add a glass of Prosecco for £7.00
