If there’s anything better than enjoying the luxury that is an afternoon tea, then doing so in a tea room which encapsulates the very essence of this popular tradition is just the thing! The Grade II listed building, which dates back to the 14th Century, is even older than the idea of afternoon tea itself, and the sandstone walls and exposed beams would already have been period features when the Duchess of Bedford was pioneering her gatherings of friends for sandwiches and cake between meals. This afternoon tea experience is a chance to sample a taste of the high life with just a touch of wanton extravagance thrown in. It’s a perfect experience for anyone using this as a chance to recharge their batteries after a morning exploring Chester, whether they’ve been seeing the sights or just doing a little shopping in the vibrant town centre.
This afternoon tea has just the right balance of savoury sandwiches and freshly baked cakes to make it feel like a deliciously indulgent way to spend an afternoon. Guests will enjoy unlimited tea or coffee to accompany their selection of finger sandwiches and fruit scones which are served with butter, jam and Rhodda’s traditional Cornish clotted cream with freshly sliced strawberries. There is also a choice of cakes all made from the freshest ingredients which make these mouth-watering morsels truly tempting. With such an array of dainty delicacies and a selection of sweet treats, the addition of a glass of bubbly makes this the perfect way to enjoy a refined celebration or just a chance to spend some quality time together.
