Coastal Cornish Christmas at The Greenbank
22 December - 27 December 2020
Starting from the 22nd or the 23rd December, The Greenbank Hotel's Christmas break begins with mulled wine and mince pies on arrival in the Water’s Edge bar...
Dinner will be served each night in our award-winning Water’s Edge restaurant courtesy of our Executive Chef Nick Hodges, Head Chef Bobby Southworth and the rest of the talented Greenbank kitchen team. Our traditional dishes with imaginative twists will have you wishing it could be Christmas every day!
Sample a slice of Cornwall with every mouthful, as we use seasonal ingredients that are locally sourced to create an unforgettable culinary experience. Think hearty winter warmers and showstopping numbers that pack a punch of flavour and creative flair, cooked to perfection and presented to impress.
On the evening of 23rd December, we’ll be tapping our toes and singing along to all our favourite carols in the Water’s Edge bar with a live performance from our traditional brass band. Pop down for complimentary canapés and let the revelries commence. For those who want to sing-along, we’ll be providing song sheets at the bar.
Choir singers, Cornish pasties and seasonal cheer all round. If you haven’t experienced Christmas Eve in Falmouth before, you are in for a total treat. Rise and shine with a hearty breakfast by the shimmering riverside, as you fuel up for an exciting day ahead. At 3pm, head to The Working Boat for a jolly afternoon of sing-songs with local choir group The Angels over a few toasty tipples, mince pies and piping hot pasties.
Recreate the nostalgia of opening your eyes on Christmas morning to the feeling of glee and magic. Discover a stocking full of surprises hung from your bedroom door! Whether you’re up with the larks to see if Santa has visited, or making the most of the holiday season with a mellow morning lie-in, start the day at the Water’s Edge for breakfast paired with buck’s fizz. This Christmas you can leave the cooking to us, as our team of chefs will be merrily roasting the turkey, peeling the potatoes and baking the mince pies, so all you need to worry about is who you’ll pull your Christmas cracker with – we’ll even do the dishes.
Boxing Day is a day of leisure. Wake late, take your time at breakfast, then spend the day as you please. We’d thoroughly recommend a relaxed stroll into town and around the docks towards Pendennis Castle.Back at The Greenbank in the evening, kick back at dinner and find a selection of games in our bar. Let’s get cosy and competitive.
How do you like your eggs in the morning? After diving into breakfast one last time, it’s time to check out and head home, with our warmest wishes for 2021. Or if you fancy extending the festivities, our sister hotel in Truro – The Alverton – will be showing Near-ta Theatre’s cult comedy. “Christmas. Time.” will be performed in the stunning Great Hall, where prison inmates Charlie and Toby go on a fantastical festive adventure. Expect songs, snowmen and plenty of belly laughs!
