Traditional Afternoon Tea In The New Forest, Hampshire
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."
Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady
Ever since the seventh Duchess of Bedford introduced afternoon tea to England in 1840, making time for tea has been one of life’s great pleasures.
Our beautiful English country garden is the perfect backdrop to a traditional afternoon tea, with nothing to disturb the peace but the lazy hum of bumblebees and the chink of china cups.
Our afternoon tea is served on a traditional stand which showcases thinly-sliced finger sandwiches to delicate pastries and warm scones smothered with fruity jam and thick, soft clotted cream.
Served from 1pm-3.30pm
All afternoon teas during December will be our festive menu
