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 for our residents is served in our Conservatory, Geranium Terrace or Pool Gardens daily, from 3-4pm. Afternoon Tea is served for our non-resident guests in our main restaurant and restaurant gardens. Prices start from just £9.50 per person for a Cream Tea. We also offer the more indulgent Royal Afternoon Tea at £23 and the option to add some fizz with our Champagne Afternoon Tea at £30.
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 24 hours in advance.
