a truly English delight
There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour
dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea...
So wrote Henry James, author, anglophile and – eventually – British citizen, and we must say we agree with him. Afternoon Tea is a proud and historic English institution, and here at Elvey Farm we make sure it's something truly special, with crisp white linen, dainty vintage china and perfect home-made cakes, scones and sandwiches.
Afternoon Tea is served from Wednesday to Saturday between 3pm and 4.30pm. It can be taken on the lawn, or, if the weather refuses to cooperate, in the restaurant. Afternoon Tea must be booked in advance.
