Traditional Afternoon Tea in Mid Devon

Whatever your reason for wanting an ‘Afternoon Tea’ we have you covered here in Mid Devon. Perhaps your celebrating a special occasion or just fancy a bit of indulgence, you can share this memorable event with friends or loved ones at a number of eateries across the district.

For a luxury afternoon for two in stunning grounds, with yummy delights and a range of fizz from Champagne, Pimms or Gin, finished with infusion tea, book a table at The Hartnoll Hotel or Paschoe House. This is a great opportunity to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday or date.

Elsie May’s and The Bakehouse can help groups celebrate by offering alternative afternoon teas with Processco or Pimms alongside their traditional pot of tea. Tiverton Hotel, Bickleigh Mill, The Waterside Café, Padbrook Park or Ashton’s Coffee Lounge offer specialist tea or coffee with their sandwiches and fluffy scones, and can accommodate group bookings for gatherings such as a baby shower. For somewhere unique, the Canal Tea Rooms situated next to the Grand Western Canal offer a quirky garden to enjoy a traditional high tea.

You can expect to be served traditional sandwiches, fresh warm scones with jam & clotted cream (remember in Devon the cream goes on first!) and succulent sweet pastries and cake at each venue offering a traditional ‘Afternoon Tea’.

Each venue has its own unique presentation and menu, therefore, it would be worth visiting their websites to ensure you book the right venue for your occasion e.g. from a quick catch up with a friend to a formal celebration. Check out our eateries for their menus and see how they can help you create the experience you want.
