Afternoon Tea

A decadent, traditional selection

What began as a Royal’s request for a midday bite to ward off hunger pangs is today an invitation to enjoy a variety of tea sandwiches and scones served with the iconic clotted cream and jam. Make sure to invite the little ones. View our Children's Afternoon Tea menu here.

We encourage you to try the Oulton Blend of tea, a high-quality blend with the perfect balance of flavour – made even more special by the warm, friendly service from our professional butlers.

Served daily in the Drawing Room from 2.00pm-6.00pm
