A Harrogate town centre hotel has launched a new outdoor family-friendly dining experience within its landscaped gardens.
Replacing the ‘Majestic Pavilion’ – which has been a popular feature on the DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa’s Terrace since early August – is the Majestic Winter Wonderland Teepee.
It will serve traditional ‘Christmas Market’ style food and drinks, including bratwurst, roast chestnuts, hot chocolate, mulled wine, and winter cocktails.
In the last week alone, the hotel has taken more than 400 bookings from local residents’ keen to sample some early Festive cheer, and enjoy company with friends and family members.
Andy Barnsdale, The DoubleTree Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa General Manager, said: “Since the summer we have had the Majestic Pavilion on our terrace, which has proved incredibly popular for those looking for relaxing alfresco food and drinks.
“Now the clocks have gone back and winter is officially here, we have added our Majestic Winter Wonderland Teepee into the alfresco dining mix.
“It is family, child and dog friendly, and all Covid-19 safety precautions will be strictly observed and adhered to. In addition to festive food and drink there will be live music on each of the three evenings, provided by local artists performing acoustic sets.
“What we are offering is an escape from the constraints that Covid-19 has brought to the nation. Our Winter Wonderland is ideal for friends to catch up in a safe environment and for families wanting an afternoon or evening out together.”
Mr Barnsdale added: “One thing that we can all agree on, this year’s Christmas will be like no other!
“We have replaced the traditional Christmas parties with ‘Merry Little Christmas two and three course dining packages in the hotel. And we believe our Majestic Winter-Wonderland Teepee will bring a bit of much-needed festive cheer to the town.”
