A HELMSLEY hotel has come up with a festive treat to celebrate a tier-appropriate Christmas.

Award-winning executive chef, Adam Jackson, and sous chef, Rachel Denton, at The Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa have added a festive afternoon tea to their menu.

It includes a patisserie selection of Christmas flavours, finger sandwiches, sweets, and freshly-baked scones for a household bubble.

“We hope that the platters of lovely flavours with a festive twist help to bring some much-needed Christmas cheer to our guests,” said Adam.

December will also see the comeback of the Verbena Spa for day guests.

Guests can enjoy a morning of two half-hour treatments, a pre-booked time in the outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi, one course lunch and glass of Prosecco and a robe and slippers for £95 per person.
