Afternoon Tea: 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 award winning 18 different types of loose leaf teas from the first supplier of organic and fair trade teas in Europe. All served with a delightful assortment of finely cut sandwiches with classic fillings followed by a delectable selection of home-made cakes. What more could you ask for from a lazy afternoon? Maybe some freshly baked scones served with strawberry preserve and smooth clotted cream to finish it off. For true decadence enjoy a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne with your Classic Afternoon Tea experience.

Our afternoon tea service is available between 2pm and 5.30pm every day, and bookings are highly recommended. Combine it 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. If you are celebrating with us and would like to arrange a special cake, champagne or perhaps flowers, please just ask.
