Traditional afternoon tea

Traditional afternoon tea

There is no better place to enjoy this beloved tradition than in The Lounge Bar or al fresco on one of the terraces of this historic country house.

Set in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire, in 40 acres of private grounds afternoon tea at Rhinefield House is perfectly accompanied with a stroll around our beautiful garden featuring ornamental ponds, fountains and terraces. Known locally as the 'Jewel in the Forest', Rhinefield House is the only AA four red star hotel in the New Forest. Add to the country mansion’s exquisite surroundings, its distinguished reputation, impeccable service, delicious handmade food and Taylors of Harrogate tea strained to your own taste, afternoon tea at Rhinefield House makes for a memorable occasion.
