It is no secret Boringdon Hall adores an Afternoon Tea and their guests love it as much as they do. With care, time and passion the team create indulgently wonderful Afternoon Teas, from the signature three tiers, to their ever-popular Special Edition masterpieces.

A quintessential English tradition, Afternoon Tea began in 1840, 200 years after Boringdon Hall came to be, when Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, would become hungry in the afternoons. With dinner being served later in the evenings, a tray of tea, bread and butter would be bought to the Duchess to stave off hunger. Afternoon Tea has since moved on from bread and butter and now features all manner of decadent sweet treats.

Over the past year Boringdon have proudly presented a charming Beauty and the Beast Afternoon Tea - complete with bell jar and fondant rose - and a sassy Sex and the City treat, served with a Cosmopolitan jelly and stiletto shaped biscuit in true Carrie Bradshaw style.

2018 started with a whimsical Beatrix Potter Afternoon Tea, served with an edible McGregor’s cabbage patch and since then there’s been Sleeping Beauty, Robin Hood, Wimbledon and more. Their newest offering is celebrating the release of Disney’s new Christopher Robin film. The Winnie the Pooh Afternoon Tea will be served until 31st August. Guests will be treated to a spread of delightful sandwiches, scones with preserves and clotted cream, themed treats, and plenty of tea all in the beautiful surroundings of the historic 16th century manor house hotel.

Winnie the Pooh will be joined by all his chums for a truly ‘tiggerific’ tea time. Head Chef Scott Paton and his team have created a scrumptious Honey Carrot Cake ‘Honey Pot’ which will be joined by ‘Winnie the Pooh’ and ‘Piglet’ Cookies, ‘Rabbit’s Vegetable Patch’ Brownie and ‘Tigger’ Macaroons, all alongside the most delicious savoury treats including ‘Eeyore’ Sticks and ‘Rabbit’s’ Vegetable Tart.

What do we love about Afternoon Tea? Is it the delicate cut of the finger sandwich?  The warm, fluffy scones topped with rich clotted cream and fruit preserves? Or the mouth-watering delicacies created to gratify and delight…
