Then join us and your fellow guest a little festive cheer with our welcome drinks reception to meet your fellow guest's and the Salutation team.

Christmas Day

Our 'Bucks Fizz' breakfast gets the day off to a good start and is served for you in the Restaurant.

After lunch it's time for the Queens speech, or a quick snooze (don't worry we won't tell anyone), board games and quizzes are also available to try your hand at. You may prefer just to collapse in to a comfy arm chair with a cup of tea and home made ginger bread or shortbread and have a go at guessing the weight of the cake, a Salutation seasonal tradition. Our local hand bell ringers will be making their ever popular visit during our Gala buffet, to make us all feel really 'Christmassy'.
