A Quintessential British Tradition

Our Afternoon Teas can be enjoyed either in the stylish surroundings of the Verandah Bar or our unique open-air Verandah overlooking the sea.

More of a charming ceremonious tradition than a mere convenient refreshment, the ritual begins with your choice of our award winning SUKI tea followed by tiers of sumptuous savoury and sweet treats. A glass of Champagne or Prosecco can be added to make your experience extra special.


Our Traditional Afternoon Teas are served from midday to 5pm every day. Our popular plant-based vegan afternoon tea offering is also available upon request.

  • Loose-leaf Suki Teas or Fruit Infusions
  • A range of savoury Finger Sandwiches
  • Home-baked Scones with Clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam
  • Mini Cakes

Served between midday and 5pm daily. Bookings must be made 24 hours in advance. Please advise of any dietary requirements or allergies when booking. £5 non-refundable deposit required per person which will be taken at the time of booking. A discretionary gratuity will be applied to the bill.


We are fortunate to have an abundance of space allowing us to keep our customers safe and socially distanced.  Our tables will be laid out to comply with the current social distancing measures and our menus are available on laminated pages which are sanitised between uses or via our contactless online menus which can be accessed by scanning the QR code on your table.  Customers are encouraged to wear face coverings when not at their table and to check-in when visiting us using the NHS COVID-19 app.
