For afternoon tea in Cornwall, head to The Alverton for the ultimate experience. With views across the manicured gardens, graze on delightful finger sandwiches, home baked scones with lashings of Cornish clotted cream and jam, and divine miniature cakes.

Afternoon tea changes with the seasons. So in the summer, indulge in high tea on the sun-drenched terrace with refreshingly fruity flavours, and cosy up by the roaring fire in the winter months for a festive twist on this wonderfully British past-time. Afternoon teas are served Monday to Saturday from 12pm until 5pm and 3pm until 5pm on Sundays.
