Afternoon Tea

A Red Carnation Ritual

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form at each of our elegant hotels. Indulge in a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches accompanied by warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, as well as a selection of pastries, tartlets and cupcakes. 

Accompanied by a vast tea menu or perhaps a glass of champagne, enjoy tea at your leisure in fine surroundings and experience the superior service for which The Red Carnation Hotel collection is renowned.
