Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea

Little is more luxurious than enjoying a slice of the British tradition of afternoon tea, in the setting of the historic Manor Restaurant.

Treat yourself and the family to a sumptuous afternoon tea, with a selection of savoury treats and sweet fancies. Make it extra special by adding a glass of Waddesdon English sparkling wine.

We are particularly proud of everything we create in the Manor Kitchen to make your tea memorable. Our chefs produce exquisite cakes and pastries, and make their own jam, often with fruit from Eythrope Walled Garden.
