At those times, we will be serving evening meals, such as farmhouse and cheese platters, baked camemberts and moroccan salads. The menu for this year has yet to be finalised, but keep your eyes peeled on this page for an update when late night openings begin!
A selection of cakes, scones, ice cream and other goodies are all awaiting you here. The range does change throughout the season but some of our favourites that are usually on offer are:
- Honey and Lavender
- Lemon and Lavender
- Blueberry and Vanilla
- Courgette and Avocado
- Vegan Chocolate
- Coffee and Pecan
- Lemon Curd
We always have Vegan, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free sweet treats available!
For a more refined experience, you can now book in to have afternoon tea in the barn! For £20 per person, you will be served a selection of finger sandwiches and mini rolls, mini cakes and scones and as much tea or coffee as you would like. For just £5 extra per person, you can add a glass of prosecco to your afternoon tea to complete the package!
If you would like to book a group in for afternoon tea, please get in touch with us a minimum of 5 days in advance of your intended date. As always, we can always cater for dietary requirements, just let us know when you book!
