Whether you are looking for that perfect gift for a birthday or just an afternoon catch up with your friends, a selection of tea treats is what you need. Choose from our bespoke tea menu, a beautiful selection of loose leaf tea's from the first supplier of organic and fair trade teas in Europe, Les Jardins de Gaia. Or our coffee is Café Cuidado, a blend of 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ beans.
All served with a delightful assortment of finger sandwiches and home-made cakes, what more could you ask for from a lazy afternoon? Maybe some scones served with jam and smooth clotted cream to finish it off.
All this can be served to you in the calm and relaxed environment of Cerise or in our more private areas of the library or lounge. Our afternoon tea service is available between 2pm and 5pm every day, bookings are highly recommended. Combined with a shopping trip to the centre of Reading, only a couple of hundred meters away, and you have the makings of the perfect day.
