We are unable to accept reservations with less than 24 hrs notice.  You can book directly for groups of 8 or fewer.

If you have a voucher, discount or loyalty card please book as normal and notify your waiter/waitress on the day of your visit.

Guests can enjoy Afternoon Tea on our sunny Terraces and, during the colder months, our afternoon tea is served inside the house in front of roaring fires!  The grand lobby with its enormous antique chandelier, comfy chairs and gilded cornices is a welcoming and relaxed space with smaller rooms to each side also used for informal dining.

Afternoon Tea is usually served in the cosy, red Library, stylish Cocktail Bar and Lady Anne dining room – pristine white walls, with historical artwork telling some of the history of this handsome Grade 1 listed house (built in 1722 – over 100 years before Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840).

With beautiful architecture, attentive staff and great food, enjoy our delicious fruit scones made freshly in house and served warm.

In the warmer months, Afternoon Tea is also served from the private gardens and terrace. A peaceful sun-trap complete with small, wooded play area for children. Why not add a glass of prosecco or a bottle of Champagne for a special occasion? Dogs are permitted in some areas of the house.


If you have a VOUCHER, discount, loyalty card, gift voucher etc, please book as normal and your discount will be applied to your final bill on the day of your visit.
