The classic afternoon tea is served with finger sandwiches that showcase premium British ingredients, including Cumbrian beef, Galvin smoked salmon and Dingley Dell ham. Handcrafted cakes and pastries are also served, including pistachio choux buns, and diners can add in glasses of premium champagnes for an added treat.

    Very good just wished I was told that that was extra sandwiches on offer before I ate the sweets

    Brilliant service, amazing food with additional servings. We opted for the 1.5 hour sitting of prosecco and it really was free flowing. The staff were lovely.

    The waiter has impeccable customer service. My friend has a dish allergy and intolerences, in which the hotel had options for,nothing was a issue. Food was great although a little top heavy on the sweets compared to savoury -even then they offered us more sandwiches as no extra cost. Amazing experience would reccomend.
