Snapshots of a Christmas Afternoon Picnic

It seems like a long time ago when I enjoyed this amazing festive afternoon tea served on picnic benches at The Garden Kitchen in Lancashire. In fact it was less than two weeks ago, but since then the whole of Christmas has been and almost gone and we are already in 2016! I actually almost didn’t post about it as the Christmas picnic menu ends today, but in the end it’s always worth sharing festive memories, especially food-themed ones! You might even be inspired to visit The Garden Kitchen for their regular “Afternoon Picnic” menu once the Christmas one ends.

The picnic benches serve 2 people and at £19.95 per person I think it’s great value! You get a pot of tea or coffee, a glass of prosecco, plus all of this!…
