A treat for all the senses

Royal Parks-Inspired Afternoon Tea

Our Royal Parks-inspired afternoon tea takes its lead from the local flora. Tuck into delectable sandwiches, from Burford brown egg mimosa and rocket mayonnaise through to Goldstein Scottish salmon, cream cheese, and lemon butter. The patisserie selection is equally irresistible, with delights such as Raspberry Posy, a raspberry pistachio and Chantilly cream tart, and Toadstool, a delicate strawberry and cream sponge. Finally, enjoy freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and preserves.

£65 per person, including a glass of Champagne. Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-free afternoon teas are also available. Our Royal Parks-inspired afternoon tea is available 7 days a week from 12 noon till 5 pm. Must be booked in advance.  From the 1st December - 2nd January - we will be serving our Festive Afternoon Tea.
