Elegant afternoon teas are served in our beautiful conservatory, brasserie or geranium terrace.
The Royal Hotel has been so called ever since Queen Victoria enjoyed taking afternoon tea at the hotel, whilst visiting her friend Sir John Hambrough, at nearby Steephill Castle. This fine tradition of a mid-afternoon spread costs £23.00, consisting of a dainty assortment of sandwiches with fillings such as egg mayonnaise and spring onion, ham and mustard and smoked salmon and chive creme fraiche. To follow, an exquisite selection of cakes, patisseries and freshly baked scones and cream, all lovingly prepared by our talented patisserie chef.
For a special occasion our Champagne Tea at £30.00 features all of the delights of our Royal Tea, served with a glass of our finest Champagne.
We also serve a traditional English cream tea for £7.50 which includes two delicious home-made scones, with jam and cream, or for those of you just after a little afternoon pick-me-up, then cake o'clock at £6.00 is just for you, choose either a slice of banana, dark chocolate and coconut cake or carrot cake with cinnamon icing.
All of the above are served with your selection from Brew Tea Co., for an ideal proper tea brew.
