Afternoon Tea


Our Afternoon Tea is changing!

Having had a long old think over the cold winter months, we’ve worked up a new approach for our Afternoon Tea offer. We’re keeping the same delicious standards of food (and adding some delectable new things) but making a host of upgrades to the experience.

Launching on 3rd April, our new Afternoon Tea will be more of a Willy Wonka-style confection, with our guests able to indulge in whatever takes their fancy from a table-bowing display of cakes, scones, biscuits, fancies and all manner of other things. We’ll even let you keep going until you really can’t take any more (for us, that’s 18 of the mini banana sticky toffee things). This, served alongside a wide selection of coffees, teas and infusions, will be priced at £30 per person, with garden entry included.

We’re also being more generous with our Champagne Tea which, as well as a little something extra in the sandwich department, will now include bottomless champagne, so you can indulge to your heart’s content without worrying about the bill racking up. Champagne Tea, again with garden entry, will be priced at £58 per person.

With this new approach, we are also now pleased to take walk-in guests without an advance reservation, although we’d always advise booking early to avoid disappointment…

If you’re planning on joining us before April 3rd, fear not, as we’ll still be serving in our current style and pricing, a sample menu for which is below.

Either way, we promise it will be delicious.

Afternoon Tea and Champagne Tea are served from 2.30pm to 4.30pm Wednesday to Saturday, and from 3pm to 4.30pm on Sundays.
