Afternoon tea is a sacrosanct tradition at The Royal, ever since Queen Victoria enjoyed taking some afternoon refreshment at the hotel when visiting Ventnor.
Afternoon Tea is served 3-5pm in our conservatory and brasserie, with outside dining subject to table availability on the day. Our Royal Afternoon Tea includes finger sandwiches and savoury bites, cakes, patisseries and scones at £25 per person or choose to add some sparkle with our Champagne Afternoon Tea at £33.
Please note: Due to current demand, we advise bookings are made at least a week in advance.
Gift vouchers are available upon request.
Our Traditional English Cream Tea includes freshly baked scones, home-made strawberry jam, clotted cream and a choice of artisan herbal or black teas. Or treat yourself to an afternoon pick-me-up with our special Cake o’Clock option: a slice of your favourite cake and barista-made coffee.
For a truly indulgent treat, the Royal Afternoon Tea consists of a delectable spread of freshly made finger sandwiches, warm scones, miniature pastries and cakes, accompanied by tea, coffee - or Champagne if you prefer. The Royal Afternoon Tea or Champagne Tea should be booked one week in advance.
We are experiencing an unprecedented demand for bookings at the current time.
When booking rooms online, please be advised that if our Dinner, Bed and Breakfast or Ferry Inclusive Packages are not available, our restaurant is fully booked for your chosen dates.
