Those looking for an indulgent Valentine’s gift idea or a decadent treat can partake in a flowering Champagne afternoon tea (usually £39.50 per person). A flute of house Champagne for each person is accompanied by a choice of tea or infusion including flowering amaranth, osmanthus, jasmine and lily.
A selection of finger sandwiches will also be served, featuring the likes of coronation chicken with baby gem lettuce, as well as Gloucestershire Old Spot ham hock with grain mustard mayonnaise. Free-range egg mayonnaise with watercress, and home-smoked Scottish salmon with herb mascarpone round out the options, with all eggs and ham used reared at The Crazy Bear Farm. A vegetarian menu is also available for those looking for alternative ingredients and flavours.
No afternoon tea would be complete without sweet treats, so two tea cakes will be baked on the morning of the visit and served alongside plain and fruit scones with clotted Jersey cream and strawberry jam.
