As twilight falls and Halloween approaches, strange creatures take over the tearoom to prepare monster meals for hungry families. Zombies, night-cats and other unnatural beasts will emerge from the kitchen and stagger to your table bearing cauldrons and urns of odd but strangely tasty food. Lifting the lids, you then share the gruesome contents among your family.
Our special three course meal consists of:
• hot blood and worms
• warm cheesy grubs and bugs, with spiders and skulls
• ice cream eyeballs
all washed down with chilled witches brew, complete with dead hand and sundry surprises.
Once everything’s digested, there’s dooking for apples and other traditional Halloween games, while in the soft play there’s scary sounds and glow-in-the-dark fun. Good children get a goody bag to take home.
These scream teas are rare occasions, taking place only on the evenings of the 30th and 31st of October. Arrive as early as you wish to explore other scariness around the Almond Valley site but be seated by 17.00 for your horrible but hearty meal. You should be on your way home by 19.00. Capacity is limited and tickets must be purchased in advance, costing £12 per person. To book, phone us on 01506 414957 with payment (non-refundable) in full by credit or
