A Quintessential British Tradition

Our Afternoon Teas can be enjoyed either in the stylish, modern surroundings of the Bay Tree Bar, the comfortable and luxurious lounges of the Burlington Hotel's Martello Bar or weather permitting, our patio or garden terrace.

More of a charming ceremonious tradition than a mere convenient refreshment, the ritual begins with your choice of our award winning SUKI tea followed by tiers of sumptuous savoury and sweet treats. A popular plant-based vegan afternoon tea is also available and a glass of Champagne, Prosecco or Chapel Down English Sparkling Wine can be added to make your experience extra special.
