Tea is served in our main indoor tea rooms at your own table which is surrounded by lovely items from Britain and a lovely garden setting, with the sound of clinking bone china cups and saucers; the fragrance of freshly baked hot scones; the aroma of fresh roses and the soft dulcet tones of ‘Tea Time’ music - close your eyes - and you will think you’re in another time and place far, far away from the noise and hustle and bustle of modern day living. All this and more, plus the pleasure of having your tea served to you on the finest Royal Crown Derby and Royal Doulton Bone China.
