Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is a speciality of Bailbrook House, Bath and what better place to enjoy it than in the elegant surroundings of the Mansion House lounges?

With two lounges to choose from – the Princess Elizabeth and Queen Charlotte, the historic, feature-rich surroundings, lend themselves perfectly to the great British tradition. Aside from our finest loose teas, delicious sandwiches, handmade cakes, pastries and scones, we also serve the traditional Bath Bun – a large fruit bun, sprinkled with crushed sugar. For that extra touch of indulgence, just add a glass of Champagne. Our tea is served the traditional way using the finest loose leaf teas, strained to your personal taste.

Special offer: please view our two for one afternoon tea special offer here.

Price: from £21.95 per person
