Traditional Afternoon Tea

Traditional Afternoon Tea

Crathorne Hall, Yarm, North Yorkshire - Afternoon Tea

The wonderful social gathering and great British tradition of afternoon tea is credited to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, after she complained of having 'that sinking feeling' in the afternoon, after lunch and before dinner.

What better place to enjoy afternoon tea, than in the grand drawing room of this historic country house. Gaze out the ceiling high windows and take in the view whilst savouring each of our carefully prepared pastries, dainty sandwiches and the finest leaf tea, served to perfection. All of our afternoon teas are hand-made.

Available from 12pm - 5.30pm.
