“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” It’s hard to quibble with that quote from Portrait of a Lady by Henry James especially when the sun is shining and you are relaxing on the cocktail terrace overlooking the ornamental gardens and deer park. And in the winter? It’s equally atmospheric indoors with roaring log fires and beautiful Georgian architecture.
However, we are definitely not stuck in a time warp as our afternoon tea offers a distinctive and delicious twist on the conventional offering. You will still find sublime savouries, wonderfully-light buttermilk scones and a tempting selection of cakes but all with an added touch of style and imagination.
We are very happy to offer gluten-free teas with prior notice – please let us know of any specific dietary requirements when booking.
Afternoon Tea for Two is a fabulous present but you can also add an extra sparkle with a glass of fine Taittinger Champagne.
