Afternoon Teas have become amazingly popular in the past 5 years or so. We serve them 5 days a week from 3pm to 4:30pm in the Snug, Drawing Rooms, South Room and outside when the weather allows.
Light teas, as described below, are always available but we require 24 hours notice for the Full Corse Lawn Teas. This is due to the fact that, unlike many hotels, we make all our jams, cakes, scones, tarts and possets on site. They are not ‘bought in’ and thus to ensure freshness we make them on the morning of your visit.

Please Note. For the next six months or so, we are only open from Wednesdays to Sundays, we close after breakfast on Mondays until Wednesday at 10am.
Everything is made in the kitchen, from the canapes and breads to the petits fours, and we use local and sustainable produce.
We serve the same food in the Restaurant and Bistro, but there is a more informal environment in the Bistro.
Our snug bar is open to everyone - not just residents - and indeed is an area where we see many of our friends.
