Afternoon Tea

Our excellent afternoon tea selection, available from 3.30pm

If you are looking to enjoy the finest afternoon tea in Hampshire then spoil yourself with high tea served in one of our period lounges. What could be more quintessentially English than a selection of blended teas, and home-made sandwiches, cakes and scones smeared with strawberry jam and clotted cream, all served on the finest spode china.

The only choice you have to make is where to enjoy the experience, either reclining in the ornate splendour of the Italian Lounge or enjoying the view of the gardens from the Grey Lounge, or for a more private tete-a-tete the Library makes a cosy hideaway. Smaller portions available for children.
