Afternoon Tea is an established part of any fine hotel’s hospitality: a time-honoured British tradition enjoyed by scone-lovers everywhere. For those who like their tea served with a dash of eccentricity, we invite them to become Charlie in the Chocolate Factory with a very different sitting inspired by Roald Dahl’s famous story and served in our downstairs lounge. Fizzy lifting drinks, snozzberry jam, chocolate swudge milkshake and fluffy floss come on boxes stacked high with wondrous treats which seem to be never-ending in our tastiest tale of all.
