Our High Tea menus are award-winners and our kitchens are extremely proud of the home-made sandwiches, cakes and scones they serve. To see them piled high on bone china plates with accompanying pots of strawberry jam and thick clotted cream, it’s easy to see how they won over the most critical judge’s eye.

The period lounges are the perfect place to enjoy our High Teas, or if the weather is nice and warm, the terrace overlooking the lawns and lake makes a sunny alternative. Or we’ll carefully pack your High Tea into a picnic hamper for you to enjoy wherever you like.

But it's not just afternoon teas we have available in our lounges, our guests enjoy breakfast, morning coffee, light bites, main meals and desserts in these opulent surroundings.  Please click on the  Afternoon Tea Menu above for more details. All our Afternoon Teas can also be purchased as a gift certificate, for further details please click here.
