There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as Afternoon Tea.
- Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady
The Alverton Afternoon Tea is something to be savoured. Take High Tea on the terrace, by the glowing embers of the fire in the lounge or in our cosy library. Gather your friends, add a glass (or two!) of champagne and tuck into delicate macaroons, rich brownies and light cucumber sandwiches.
All the cakes are homemade, including the scones, and the selection of sandwiches are freshly made. The tea, the only grown in the UK, is from just down the road at the Tregothnan Estate.
Served everyday from 3pm to 5.30pm, please book your Afternoon Tea in advance so we can ensure that each element is homemade. 24 hours notice is preferable.
Afternoon Tea at The Alverton is £15 per person. Add a glass of Prosecco for £5.50 or Champagne for £10.50. We also offer a Children’s Afternoon Tea for £5.
