Traditional Afternoon Tea

We plan to reopen the hotel from 17th May, subject to any changes to Government ruling. We are delighted to confirm that we are now taking bookings for afternoon tea after this date. Please see service times below.

This traditional English ritual takes place in one of the grand public rooms of the historic hall or on warmer days on the south terrace.

Afternoon Tea also makes a great gift!

We have taken the best advice to ensure everything is in place for a visit that will be as safe as it will be comfortable and enjoyable. Please click here to download the Covid-19 Safety Measures for dining guests.

A delightfully indulgent experience

Afternoon Tea at Middlethorpe is a long-lasting tradition enhanced by a luxury connection with Hoogly Tea.
