Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea

Afternoon tea with a Scottish twist 

As well as a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, warm scones, miniature cakes, pastries and a wide choice of teas, afternoon tea at Norton House also includes whisky infused delicacies, including Dundee Cake and Cranachan Meringue – a modern take on a traditional Scottish dessert. Perfectly combined with a stroll around our 55 acres of spectacular grounds, this has to be one of the most popular venues for afternoon tea in Edinburgh. We also offer a baby shower themed afternoon tea, the perfect way to treat a mum-to-be and gather together friends and family before the new arrival.

Price: from £19.50

Served from: 12 - 5pm
