Afternoon Tea

What better way to spend an afternoon than to indulge in the 19th Century tradition of Afternoon Tea in the historic setting of Bishop’s Gate Hotel. Definitely one for the ladies… this is what afternoons were made for!

Served in both the elegant Edwardian surroundings of the “Hervey Library”  & contemporary styling of "The Gown Restaurant" you will be transported back to the glamour of a bygone era to enjoy a sumptuous combination of dainty finger sandwiches, home-baked scones, pastries, seasonal cakes and decadent sweet treats, all skilfully prepared fresh each day.   Soak up the sophisticated and elegant ambience whilst enjoying the finest tea and coffee selections or add a glass of prosecco for a touch of added luxury.



During December & January we will be offering a special Festive Afternoon Tea menu which will include both savoury & sweet options


Festive Afternoon Tea: £25 per person (includes a glass of Prosecco per guest)
