Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea


There is no better place to enjoy this beloved tradition than in the Great Drawing Room of this historic country house.

Featuring an ornate gilded ceiling, beautiful old tapestries and oil paintings that trace its centuries of tradition and heritage, there really is no finer place to enjoy afternoon tea than the Great Drawing Room. Offering a perfect view out over the 40 acres of beautiful parkland with the River Stour meandering through it and Ettington’s spectacular Norman chapel – you can enjoy irresistible food all while soaking in some of Warwickshire’s finest architecture. Expect handmade sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones, and the finest loose leaf teas, strained to your personal taste.

During the Summer months enjoy afternoon tea al fresco on our beautiful terrace or we can provide blankets with an afternoon tea picnic for that extra indulgence. 

SPECIAL OFFER
