Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea Make an occasion of it!

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea
– Henry James (1843 – 1916)

Afternoon Tea is a delightful occasion for all to enjoy. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in peaceful surroundings with friends or family enjoying a selection of tasty delicate sandwiches, scrumptious homemade cakes and scones served with clotted cream and conserve. This is all served on our pretty china and accompanied by pots of freshly brewed leaf tea or coffee.

We have created three tiers of afternoon tea to suit all occasions and budgets: the Afternoon tea standard, the Afternoon tea deluxe and the Afternoon tea luxury in miniature. Click on the links to view sample menus. We use seasonal produce so ingredients will vary depending on the time of year.

As we like to make this a very special occasion booking is essential. We just need 24 hours notice to prepare the perfect afternoon.

We reserve the table of your choice and dress it with crisp linen and fine china. This is the perfect way to celebrate a babyshower, hen party, special birthday or a ‘just because’.

We have created an afternoon tea option for all ages – our afternoon teanies and inbe-teanies will suit guests from 3-9 and 10-16 respectively. Click on the link for the sample menus. The perfect way to celebrate a birthday or a big achievement.

We are able to create a bespoke afternoon to suit all needs and preferences, and have hosted vegan, vegetarian and gluten free teas. Please do let us know what you would need or prefer when you contact.
