Afternoon Tea

The Edbaston Afternoon Tea

English afternoon tea is an irresistible concept and you can indulge in town or country in tea rooms, cafes and farm shops. Hotels make afternoon tea a destination feature – and you don’t have to be staying to indulge, choosing from menus including champagne afternoon tea and more.

At The Edgbaston boutique hotel, Birmingham, choices include Moet et Chandon Afternooon Tea, Laurent Perrier Rose Afternoon Tea and more along with savour and sweet treats and yes, scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. The Moseley Serve is another cut above with gin and tea-based cocktails. The teas are so popular you should book 48 hours ahead.

The Feathers Hotel and Fishmore Hall are just two of the notable afternoon tea venues in foodie Ludlow, Shropshire.

Around Broadway find Dormy House, with a vegan afternoon tea option available, the Lygon Arms and Buckland Manor. Stratford-upon-Avon’s Arden Hotel and The Welcombe are among the noted afternoon tea spots.
