Afternoon tea at Longworth Hall is a special occasion, as Henry James wrote, “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. Longworth Hall was build in 1783 and so the walls have seen many wonderful Afternoon Tea’s and Longworth Hall are proud to continue the tradition. The menu is freshly prepared each day. Afternoon tea is available for parties of 2 or more and 24 hours notice is required for a reservation.
Longworth Hall pride themselves on serving afternoon tea using only the finest ingredients. The menus range from the classic traditional English to a creative and modern approach.
The extensive range of the highest quality loose leaf teas are expertly served in fine bone china and antique tea sets, staff are trained in perfectly matching the teas to suite your choice of sandwiches, scones and cakes.
The “flower bud” tea is a spectacle to behold. Watch your chosen tea burst into a flower and release its delicate flavours for you to enjoy.
There is a comprehensive range of Champagnes and Proseccos to add a bit of sparkle to the occasion. And a rather surprisingly nice gin-based tea which Longworth Hall are very pleased to be one of the first in the UK to embrace.
Afternoon Tea is served daily from 12 noon-5 pm
