Top Herefordshire attraction, Eastnor Castle, is putting a contemporary take on traditional Hot Cross Buns this Easter. Instead of a cross, the buns will feature a smiley face. The first 100 visitors across the castle moat on Easter Day will be given a free, Hot Happy Bun as part of the two-day festivities.

The staff at Eastnor felt there was enough bad news in the world to make people cross and came up with the idea of Hot Happy Buns. During tastings of this new festive fare, it was even found that people felt happier having eaten one.
