Afternoon Teas to Take Away!

Are you, like me, very excited about seeing your family and friends again and being able to hug, cry, share thoughts and just have a cup of tea together? That moment when you can remove a face mask and see each other smile… I relish that day and I honestly can’t wait!

In the meantime, I have been dreaming about Sunday lunch with my mum but then thought of the queues at the shops, all the work that goes into the prep, and the warm weather; which really means I’d rather have a salad.

I pondered this a little more, and suddenly though about my favourite style of dining, and probably the most enjoyable meal I could wish ever for – Afternoon Tea of course! To me nothing screams British Summertime louder than Afternoon Tea.  It is the epitome of all things British, and the perfect way to celebrate any special occasion. I long to hear the tinkle of a piano in the distance, the gentle sound of a teaspoon against good quality china as you stir tea, and of course the sound of champagne corks popping!

As always, we only offer a very high-end handmade menu using the absolute best in seasonal, organic, sustainable ingredients sourced locally, from independent artisan companies. These values have never been more important to us than they are right now and buying from us will see small family run businesses like mine, succeed and thrive going forward.

Sadly, I can’t provide the pianist or cups of tea in fine bone china, but we do have finger sandwiches cut with precision, cakes to pile high and freshly baked scones – the rest is up to you. You bring the basket and we will do the rest… We will even include a bottle of chilled Fizz for you to share along with a couple of fully compostable glasses!

One thing is for sure, this is a very special offer, and after lockdown life you definitely deserve a treat!
