Afternoon Teas

Quintessentially British Daytime Party Food


Celebrate your special occasion with a great British tradition

A vintage-style afternoon tea party can be a fun and delicious way to while away an afternoon. Afternoon tea is a perfect accompaniment to an afternoon wedding, christening or other afternoon party or event.

Sweet and savoury party food catered by our experienced chefs

Our traditional afternoon tea includes freshly-made finger sandwiches (crusts cut off, of course), house made scones with strawberry jam and lashings of clotted cream, and a selection of other sweet and savoury treats baked to perfection by our chefs.

Afternoon tea classics with a modern twist

We will design our menu to suit your tastes and will serve our afternoon tea offerings on tiered cake stands, piled with sweet and savoury bites. Afternoon tea can look great served on vintage mismatched crockery, and with decorations including freshly cut flowers, bunting and even floral tablecloths. Afternoon tea can also be lovely as part of an outdoor picnic – simply add a beautiful green lawn and a perfect English summer’s day.
