A quintessential English experience -

afternoon tea that fulfilled all our expectations and more.


This delightful oasis of calm is just outside the seaside town of Sheringham, situated just off a winding leafy country lane.


On a brilliant sunny August afternoon we were served our tea on the terrace overlooking the extensive wooded gardens – there is even a giant chess set should you feel like a game.


Tea - ours however was a chilled bottle of English sparkling wine - consisted of little finger sandwiches (smoked salmon, egg and cress, and ham), a huge selection of pastries and warm scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream – eat your heart out Devon!


Nothing was too much trouble for the young attentive staff and the surroundings were idyllic – a truly magical afternoon!
