There is something quintessentially British about afternoon tea, a tradition steeped in history. When people think about afternoon tea, they often think about multi-tiered cake stands that are filled to the brim with authentic treasures.
These treasures range from tiny finger sandwiches to homemade baked goods. Here at the Ponsbourne Hotel, we take a great amount of pride in the quality of our afternoon tea. To complement our idyllic surrounds, we factor in traditional goods and offer a full selection of sandwiches, cakes and drinks, inviting all of our guests to partake from the comfort of our historic manor house. Naturally, the evocative scenery that can be found here will take you back to a time that has long since been lost to the modern world.
And we’ll have your table ready when you arrive!
On the first tier of our multi-tiered stand, you will find our finger sandwiches. Each of our sandwiches are hand-crafted by the experts in our kitchens. We offer a wide selection, including classic cucumber sandwiches, mature cheddar cheese sandwiches and Scottish smoked salmon sandwiches.
On the next tier, you will find a selection of freshly baked cherry and plain scones. These are served with traditional clotted cream and a rustic strawberry preserve. Alongside them, you will find a number of cakes, fancies and tarts. These include Battenberg cake, white chocolate profiteroles and berry fruit mousse.
Remember, it would never be afternoon tea without a warm beverage. Our helpful members of staff will be on hand to complement your finger bites with tea and coffee that will be swiftly brewed to meet your tastes.
If you do have any specific dietary restrictions, then please have a chat with our reservations team when you make your booking. We want all of our guests to have the opportunity to enjoy the many delights of afternoon tea and we are more than happy to try to accommodate most requests.
