Whimsical & playful

From the theatrical smoking pink lemonade to the surprising and delicious sweetshop-themed cakes – just imagine biting into a Coca-Cola slice – our whimsical Afternoon Tea is created in collaboration with Mr Simms Sweetshop to bring a playful, bygone era to vivid life.

Scrumptious chocolate scones and mouth-watering finger sandwiches, such as finely-sliced smoked salmon on beetroot bread, are accompanied by a gloriously long tea list (including our own loose leaf teas). To elevate the occasion, why not enjoy a chilled glass of Champagne alongside your decadent treats.

We are thrilled to announce that our Afternoon Tea received an Award of Excellence at the prestigious Afternoon Tea Awards 2023.

Mr Simms Sweetshop Afternoon Tea

Inspired by a traditional sweetshop, our Afternoon Tea offering celebrates the joy of rediscovering old favourites and the thrill of finding something new and scrumptious.

Savour freshly made finger sandwiches, homemade scones, and a selection of delicious cakes and pastries inspired by the magic of an original sweetshop!

The tea is suitable for Halal.
