We went for the Xmas lunch and meet Santa experience here yesterday..we were a party of 6 adults 6 children and 2 babies in high chairs, from the moment we got there we were greeted by elves who made a fuss of all the kids and shown to our table, which was decorated lovely with Xmas crackers, childrens activity packs, party poppers and gold personalised tickets with the children’s names on to see Santa..our 3 course meal was lovely as was the waiter Sam and the elves who keptcoming in to chat with all the kids. After our meal an elf came and took us down to see Santa who was lovely and we had as much time as we wanted with Santa so went in as families instead of 1 large group the pressies were wrapped and name tagged and all the children got different presents and they were lovely presents- would recommend this and we will be going back next year..fantastic value for money

Me and my family went to Santa’s Christmas lunch Southend on sea and it was fantastic my granddaughters loved every minute of it. The staff (elf’s) were amazing with the children.
