Afternoon tea is a delicious British institution and the perfect way to celebrate any occasion – but we understand that sometimes all that jam, clotted cream and sugary pastry is just too sweet for those with a more savoury tooth.
Our delicious new savoury take on the traditional tea is perfect for those who prefer a sumptuous savoury feast to a sugary sweet treat.
Thinly-sliced sandwiches are filled with a choice of cucumber and cream cheese, free-range egg with black pepper and chives, honey roast gammon with Dijon mayonnaise, and organic, whisky-smoked salmon with lemon and dill.
Then there are our warm Dorset cheddar and bacon scones, perfect slathered in creamy Dorset soft cheese and fruity homemade chutney.
Sweet pastries are replaced with a hearty Pondhead Farm pork Scotch egg, a warm sage and home-grown apple sausage roll, and a homemade pork pie with a tangy pickle.
Our new savoury tea can be enjoyed in either the cosy Magnolia Lounge with its crackling log fires, or in the airy conservatory overlooking our beautiful gardens.
Both sweet and savoury options will be perfectly accompanied by a selection of the finest loose-leaf teas and Fairtrade coffee.
Our new savoury afternoon tea costs £25, and is available to both residents and non-residents.
