Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea

What better place to enjoy this fine tradition than in the lounge of this historic country house?

What better place to enjoy this British tradition than in the grand Drawing Room of this historic country house? Crathorne Hall, North Yorkshire is the perfect place to sit back and relax and take in the far reaching views of the estate offered by the ceiling-high windows while savouring our carefully prepared dainty sandwiches, cakes, pastries and fruit scones, served to perfection. All afternoon teas are handmade, change with the seasons, and we offer it a local twist too, with our Yorkshire curd tart – traditionally baked for Whitsuntide, when many Yorkshire villages held feasts and fair days, and Taylors of Harrogate Tea.

During January enjoy afternoon tea for two at our special offer price.

Served: from 12-5.30pm
