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. Our vegan Afternoon Tea menu is full of plant-based recipes including sandwiches, scones, cakes and drinks.
For an extra special treat, why not indulge in a Hendricks gin & tonic or a glass of bubbly.
Served daily in the Drawing Room from 2.00pm-6.00pm
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.
You will love our scones, fresh from the oven!
