Afternoon tea goes down a treat in the sumptuous settings of Harrogate

13th August 2015

Categories: News

It doesn’t have to be Afternoon Tea Week (10-16th August) to enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea in Harrogate.

The spa town is savouring being voted the happiest town in Britain for the third year in a row, which is unsurprising when you consider the delectable treats on offer at picturesque venues across the district.

Some of the best afternoon teas include:

Ripon Racecourse – on Tuesday 18th August, Ripon Racecourse are hosting a family race day to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. Among other activities such as face painting, storytelling and interactive games, there will be a Mad Hatters Tea Party for children and an adult afternoon tea in the dining room.

Newby Hall – their afternoon tea is served with freshly baked scones straight from the oven, and the settings are just as special as the food. Customers can sit inside, on the terrace, or on the lawn while children play – there aren’t many places where you can take tea with a stunning display of Dahlias on one side and Zimbabwean Sculpture and a Dolls house Exhibition on the other.

Studley Tea Rooms – in the beautiful setting of Fountains Abbey, Studley Tea Rooms use local suppliers to create seasonal menus all year round. Stop by the shop on your way out to take some of their delicious local jams and preserves home.

Cedar Court Hotel – served either in the Brasserie or al fresco, Cedar Court’s freshly made to order afternoon teas are currently on special offer at two for one daily.

Fodder – a delicious mix of sweet and savoury, the Fodder afternoon tea includes finger sandwiches, choux buns, scones, millionaires shortbread and much more – and of course a pot of Yorkshire tea. Fodder’s local farm philosophy means that you’ll be enjoying fresh produce from the Harrogate district.

The Sawley Arms – located in the picturesque village of Sawley, the Sawley Arms serve a full afternoon tea with Yorkshire tea, prosecco, or even a jug of Pimms if you’re feeling really summery.

West Park Hotel – enjoy decadent delights and tiers of treats in a truly fabulous location at the West Park Hotel. You can take your tea (or your bubbles!) overlooking the Stray in the centre of Harrogate.

Goldsborough Hall – take your afternoon tea in true royal fashion, in Princess Mary’s drawing room or, when weather allows, on the terrace. Included with every afternoon tea is a tour of the magnificent gardens – and during afternoon tea week you will also receive a complimentary glass of champagne.
