“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
– Henry James
Apart from, perhaps, discussing the weather or apologising when someone bumps into you, there can’t be many things more quintessentially English than afternoon tea in the Cotswolds.
- Available between 2pm and 4pm, Monday to Saturday in our Garden Room restaurant
- A classic spread of freshly made sandwiches (including cucumber, naturally), quiche, beautifully crafted cakes and scones slathered in cream and jam. All washed down with a selection of fine teas sourced from China, India, Morocco and Sri Lanka – and, should you be in the mood, a glass of champagne or a cocktail.
- £22.50 per person
You can also jazz up your platter with hearty home-made treats such as sausage rolls or Welsh rarebit, or add a luxury touch with smoked salmon and caviar. Just leave enough room for dinner.
