What could be more quintessentially British than a delicious afternoon tea served in charming surroundings? Give in to tea and cake cravings at one of a range of hand-picked venues, including charming hotel restaurants and lounges. What's included will vary according to the location chosen - for example be served a traditional English cream tea, a tea with finger sandwiches and homemade cakes, fancy pastries and champagne, or cakes and cocktails, and some venues offer the experience for more than two people. Whichever it is, find the perfect spot to relax on any occasion from Mother's Day to 40th birthday celebrations, and indulge and while away an afternoon. Tuck in!
Bookings are offered seven days a week at most venues (bear in mind that hotel venues can be much busier during summer months).
Everyone is welcome, but at least one guest must be an adult (18 or over).
Tea is served in the afternoon, usually between 11am and 6pm.
The majority of venues offer this experience for two people, although there are options included within our range for three and for four.
Most hotels request smart casual dress.
Nice place with good service, tea weak & in thick glass mugs not china cups. Cakes & sandwiches nice but few, The scones were undercooked & like dough in the centre, very small portions of jam & cream, jam poor quality, more like jelly. Having said this we did eat most of it. Sorry just disappointing.
I took my friend to Farringdon Lodge Hotel as a Birthday treat and it was excellent from start to finish. We were shown into a beautiful room which was set aside for afternoon teas with crisp white tablecloths and napkins on the tables. The tables were in plenty of space rather than crowded.
We were asked which sort of sandwiches we would like from an adequate selection on the menu and while they were freshly prepared we were offered tea and coffee. We enjoyed this as well as the view of the lovely gardens from the window. Our afternoon tea soon arrived on a three-tier china cake-stand - 6 finger sandwiches each which were thick with filling, three dainty cakes each plus a scone, jam and cream. More than adequate! Also more tea whenever we wanted it. It was a very relaxing afternoon in an elegant setting.
It was very traditional which I prefer to all the latest gimmicks which are offered these days at other establishments. Also nice to be offered choice of sandwiches. Also I prefer a separate room for afternoon teas rather than cooked meals being served in the same room.
Altogether very satisfactory
Delicious cute sandwiches, wonderful scones and beautiful surroundings. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Attentive friendly staff. Thank you Hatton Court Hotel :)
Afternoon tea was a great way to spend an afternoon. Service was great and the Langtry Manor a beautiful setting. Sitting in the garden would have been beautiful as stunning . Langtry Manor full of history.
This hotel was situated in what seemed the middle of nowhere in the New Forest at Burley. The hotel was beautifully presented inside and we were led to a room over looking the garden. A good selection of sandwiches and cake were presented with Champagne and earl grey tea to wash them down. The staff were attentive but not pressing-great.
A treat for my birthday afternoon tea, the food was lovely and the choice of tea fantastic, the young man who served us was very nice and when we had a pot of tea each with the food he went away and said he would be back, the downside we never saw him again, we had to go and find someone to get more tea, nobody asked if we were ok, such a shame, as the place was nice and the food good, after service was rubbish, because it was quiet we felt we were just ignored.
I think the red letter day high tea is a bit expensive for what you get for 2 people.
I only paid an extra £10 to include a 3rd guest and got exactly the same for them as I got with the voucher for the red letter day . Never again its more cost effective to book direct with the hotel
Very disappointing. pine table, stainless steel tea pot, thick coffee cups from the bar. no table cloth. Paper napkins, plastic ham, dry fruit cake, won't be recommending hallmark hotels at all, wished we'd chosen a different venue. You can only have the china and tables cloths if you if grade to £25 per head. For £36 you slump it in a corner on a pine table.
This was afternoon tea as you wouldn't know it!! First we had choice of sitting in the bar with a large screen TV that was showing football or sitting in the cold reception area that was very noisy. This in itself was off putting as the experience is advertised as taking your seat in the hospitable dining room! The food that was served was rather large sandwiches on a bed of salad covered in a dubious dressing, followed by warm pastry items that didn't taste too nice followed by very soggy scones and a couple of pieces of cake!! This had been a Christmas present for us and we had saved it for our wedding anniversary but unfortunately were a bit disappointed in it.
So disappointed with my very first Red Letter Experience. Would not recommend any body i know to buy this as a gift.
Nice setting. Staff friendly and helpful. Top up of tea/coffee if you want it. Very generous platter of finger sandwiches (5 fillings), fruit and plain scones, cakes (which were not too fancy so easier to get through them) plus a mini desert. Don't eat beforehand or you won't get through it. Excellent value and all fresh. and clean dining/bar area. Definitely recommend this location.
Unfortunately have had to postpone our afternoon tea to a later date to be agreed with the hotel,
Wonderful venue and a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes. The staff were warm and friendly, thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea at Hey LittleCupcake it was a lovely afternoon tea the prefect end to a lovely day out with my daughter.
Most enjoyable Afternoon Tea (with glass of wine).Sandwiches freshly made & delicious selection of cakes & scones served in a lovely location overlooking Bournemouth beach. Staff at this hotel are excellent- smart, friendly & efficient. 2nd time we have been treated to this & both occasions have been really enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend this experience if you want something special.
Food was good, as was the service
The Beechwood Hotel gives a warm welcome and a tea that is more than sufficient for two people. Sandwiches and cakes were excellent though wasn't impressed with the scones. Overall a very enjoyable experience
good food well served
Lovely place and very nice people and service was fantastic
Will recommend to friends and family.
