What better way to spend an afternoon than to indulge in the 19th Century tradition of Afternoon Tea in the historic setting of Bishop’s Gate Hotel, this is what afternoons were made for.

Served in both the elegant Edwardian surroundings of the Hervey Library and the contemporary styling of The Gown Restaurant, you will be transported back to the glamour of a bygone era to enjoy a sumptuous combination of home-baked scones, seasonal cakes, decadent sweet treats and savoury bites, all skilfully prepared fresh each day.   

Soak up the sophisticated and elegant ambience whilst enjoying the finest selection of teas & coffees or a glass of Prosecco for a touch of added luxury.

Afternoon tea takes place in the Hervey Library daily with two seating times: Midday & 3.00pm. 

Family afternoon tea is available Monday - Saturday in The Gown Restaurant from Midday until 2.30pm.

*Please note that during December our Afternoon Tea service will run Sunday - Thursday only. For all reservations made to dine in December 2021 a non-refundable booking fee will be required to secure tables of 4 or more guests. Our team will advise further at time of booking.
