Make the most of sunny afternoons and warm evenings, and feel miles away from the city, within the landscaped gardens of North London’s Hendon Hall Hotel – the perfect setting to enjoy ‘al fresco’ dining.

The former country house was originally built in the 16th Century for David Garrick, the famous actor and manager of the Drury Lane Theatre. 

Today, the hotel is renowned for its afternoon teas, which include carefully prepared pastries, dainty sandwiches and the finest selection of teas and Champagne.

Offering a menu of light salads, tarts and sorbets, the hotel and its gardens are sure to provide a delightful dining experience for those looking to enjoy the fine weather this season. The hotel’s wine list includes a collection of fine white, rosé and sparkling wines, the perfect addition to a sunny day. 

With a number of historical gems nearby, including Hampstead Heath and Kenwood House, guests of the hotel also have the choice of a take-away picnic which they can enjoy whilst exploring all the area has to offer.  

Hendon Hall Hotel is offering its Royal Afternoon Tea from £28.50 per person, including homemade cakes and scones, a selection of finger sandwiches and a glass of Champagne.
