AFTERNOON TEA AT THE GREENBANK
Time for tea? When the January blues strike, an afternoon tea in our Water’s Edge restaurant is a sure-fire way to perk up a mizzly winter’s day. Choose from our range of wonderful afternoon tea options to gift your foodie friends. For the friend who loves a glass of fizz, why not treat them to our new bottomless prosecco afternoon tea? They can use one of our vouchers to book in whenever suits them best.
Afternoon tea starts from £22 per person. You can even choose to make it sparkling or bottomless for an additional cost. A delicious vegan menu is also available.
MONOPOLY: FALMOUTH EDITION
Christmas is the perfect time to pull out the board games and get competitive with friends and family.

We’re proud to hold a space on the board, and you can buy directly from us for £30 by popping into the hotel and speaking to reception.

Choose from scents such as Orange & Cinnamon, Winter Thyme and Figgy Pudding. Pick up in Uneeka in Falmouth or buy on their online store.
Wow someone you love this Christmas with our Cornish Gourmet Getaway for two. Your nearest and dearest can expect to fall in love with Falmouth and its exceptional food and drink offering during this one-night stay by the sea. They’ll be greeted with two tantalising tipples expertly crafted by our Water’s Edge bar crew, before heading to their perfectly appointed room. Then they’ll dive into a delicious meal while watching the waves lap the shoreline, before waking up feeling refreshed with a hearty breakfast to look forward to. All this, and a bespoke Cornish hamper to take home too! If you’re lucky, they may even take you with you.
