Holiday Offerings

The Carolina Inn invites you to join us for a Joyous Holiday Season!

Holiday Afternoon Tea

Crossroads Restaurant, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 

December 1- 31, 2023

It is said that Anna Russell, 7th Duchess of Bedford, invented Afternoon Tea in 1840. This was to satisfy her peckishness during the long wait between lunch and dinner. We are proud to continue this custom.

Prepared and served fresh each day, our menu faithfully follows the traditional combination of sweet and savory treats and homemade scones with clotted cream and jam. The ingredients include specialties from our pastry team that reflect our southern roots as well as time-honored British influence. At the heart of the experience is the drink itself. Choose from a variety of loose leaf teas including English blends and herbal infusions that will complement your food perfectly. Enjoy the company of family and friends and delight in the wonder of the holiday season.



Seating is limited.

Christmas Block & Cellar

Crossroads Restaurant, 5:30pm- 7:30pm

December 24, 2023

Join us for a festive evening of artistically prepared food designed to bring people together during the holiday season.

Our team of culinary professionals have created a meal sourced from our local food partnerships from the most seasonal items across the state of North Carolina. This festive feast will be presented in a series of courses on grazing boards. Each course will be accompanied with a perfectly crafted wine or spirit.  This family style meal will be shared amongst a community table and will afford all guests the opportunity to socialize with both new and old friends while dining, making for a relaxed and intimate occasion. Executive Chef, Jeremy Blankenship and Crossroads General Manager, Tyler Vrabel will be the culinary and libation hosts for the evening and will offer definition, explanation, and the opportunity for conversation during each course. Foodies-this is the perfect addition to your holiday calendar!
