Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea

There is no better place to enjoy this beloved tradition than at this historic country house hotel

At Chilston Park Hotel, Lenham, Kent we delight guests with our afternoon tea, and there is no finer place to enjoy this tradition than in the Marble Lounge with its beautiful chandeliers. This great country house was built for pleasure and it is in the Marble Lounge where this spirit is most prevalent – here you can allow yourself to be outrageously indulgent as you devour our selection of carefully prepared pastries, sandwiches and the finest leaf tea. For that extra special occasion, you can also choose to take afternoon tea in one of our private dining rooms.

Please note parties of 9 and over will be in a private function room and there is a £10 per head charge, alternatively two or more tables can be offered within the Lounge and Restaurant, subject to availability.

PRICE: from £21 per person

Served from: 11am to 4pm
