“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” ―  Henry James

To idle away hours by water is always a relaxing experience. A cup of tea in hand and delightful cake to complement though, is the definition of quiet indulgence. Contemplate life in peaceful solitude or chatter with friends and loved ones. Afternoon tea is to savour or share. Served in our Orangery Restaurant Thursday - Saturday.

Classic Afternoon Tea

An English Tradition

Savour afternoon tea overlooking the serene Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. Choose from a range of Teapigs loose leaf teas or hand roasted coffee supplied by Chartley Coffee, specialist coffee roasters since 1979.

A classic afternoon tea wouldn't be complete without sandwiches and home-baked scones with clotted cream and preserves. We offer a range of other savoury treats and delicious tempting desserts.


For Special Occasions


For the ultimate idle afternoon, enjoy our classic afternoon tea accompanied by a glass of the finest British sparkling wine, Nyetimber.

A Savoury Twist

Enjoy three servings of real ale of your choice from our cask and craft beers supplied by small independent brewers Joules Brewery and long experienced Marston's to wash down our snacks and savouries.
