Quite Possibly the Best Afternoon Tea in Staffordshire

Afternoon tea is a fabulously British tradition that we take very seriously indeed. After all, we have the perfect setting – an enchanting Grade II listed Country House with ever-so-pretty gardens! Brimming with old English charm, the magic begins as soon as you travel arrive at our tree-lined driveway, leaving the hubbub of every day life behind…

Afternoon tea is served Wednesday to Sunday in our intimate dining room and lounge areas or, on fine days, in the gardens. A delightful journey back in time, tables are bedecked in crisp white linen, adorned with fresh flowers. Tiers of naughty-but-nice treats are served with gleaming silverware on mismatched vintage china.

English Country Garden Afternoon Tea

This garden-themed tea treat is a deliciously imaginative take on tradition! Inspired by our passion for all things home-grown, the botany-themed fancies are served in flowerpots on a pretty lawn presentation plate. A real, hearty taste of The Good Life, highlights include the ‘Organic Flower Pot’ – spiced carrot cake with Chantilly cream, divine chocolate soil, fresh herbs and edible flowers – and the ‘Pick Your Own Pot’ – macerated strawberries, strawberry cream, crushed meringue and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate soil. Best in Show, this teatime delicacy shows an attention to detail that is backed-up with flavour and sustenance! Hungry horticulturists will adore the delicate selection of sandwiches brimming with the best of British ingredients, whilst pleasure seekers will love the pretty French macarons, and of course the freshly baked scones with seasonal jam. To top it all off, the English Garden Afternoon tea is served with a palette-cleansing flowering tea. A taste sensation, individual tealeaves and dried aromatic flowers are hand-tied to form a tea bud that not only looks beautiful but, when supped, is said to hold homeopathic qualities. Eight different flowering teas are available to choose from.

with a glass of house wine: £30.15 per person
