South Wales Afternoon Tea

Perfect for anniversaries, Christenings, baby showers, hen parties and get togethers, afternoon tea is a great way to celebrate and a real treat. Served on vintage china, our afternoon teas offer a delightful selection of home-made cakes and savouries.

Afternoon Tea

We are currently offering Afternoon Tea Tuesdays - Saturdays (subject to availability) between 2pm and 4pm.  We regret that Afternoon Tea is not available during December.  Booking in advance is essential.

Afternoon tea was introduced in 1840 by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford who would become hungry around four o'clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o'clock, leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.  To satisfy her hunger, staff prepared a selection of sandwiches, cakes and fresh tea - hence Afternoon Tea was born!

Enjoying a little indulgence is well worth it now and again - and what is more indulgent than an exquisite afternoon tea of savouries, fancies and scones washed down with a speciality tea or even a glass of bubbly.

For guests wishing to treat themselves, someone special or indulge in some 'time out' with colleagues, an Afternoon Tea can be just the tonic you need.  With the most delightful selection of sweet and savoury options, our popular afternoon tea menu can also be provided for larger groups celebrating a special birthday, a retirement, a baby shower afternoon tea, a reunion or perhaps a family gathering prior to, or following a wedding celebration

If you can't manage it all on the day, you are welcome to   take away any remaining cakes and savouries to enjoy later!

Served on vintage china, afternoon tea is generally served in our Clarkes Restaurant  although we have a variety of venue rooms available including our cosy Lounge overlooking the lawn at the front of the hotel where guests are made to feel very much 'at home'.   If you have a preference to which room, please ask upon booking.  Due to the popularity of our afternoon tea, prior booking is essential to avoid disappointment.  Afternoon Tea is perfect for Hen parties, baby showers, birthdays or just because you can!

Due to the nature of the afternoon tea, we do our very best to cater for special dietary requirements i.e. gluten-free,  if notified at least 48 hours before you attend.
