In Detail: Afternoon Tea

Our afternoon tea was a finalist at the 2019 EAT Norfolk Food & Drink Awards for 'Best Afternoon Tea' and it is easy to see why. It is the best possible quality – all homemade on site with traditional sandwiches, fruit or plain scones, Norfolk strawberry jam and local clotted cream, cake including macarons, pavlovas, cheese cake, ginger cake and lemon drizzle cake, and special touches including our secret recipe chocolate brownies, bottomless hot Tea-pig teas, and a glass of champagne or prosecco. 

But what sets us apart is the use of our Country House venue for all the guests enjoying afternoon tea with us. It really is the perfect place to escape from it all for an afternoon in relaxed luxury.

Guests can take their tea in our private walled garden with lush lawns, rose bushes and a large sheltered terrace, bar or lounge areas with comfy sofas, candles and roaring log fires, or stylish and atmospheric dining room or private Georgian Room. They can combine with bespoke spa treatments on site in our Treatment Rooms; go for a relaxing stroll through our eight acres of lovingly kept private grounds right down to the banks of the River Bure. They can spot the swans, geese and other wildfowl on our private lake. They can even request to have their afternoon tea picnic-style and take it out in our six seater English Harbour Yacht and enjoy a relaxed afternoon boating on the Norfolk Broads.

We cater for all dietary requirements – including diabetics, gluten free and dairy free.

We’ll even box up leftovers! Nothing is too much trouble for our attentive staff. 

For a cost of £18.50 per person it really is the best afternoon tea in Norfolk!

Available Monday - Saturday, 2-5pm, and Sunday 4-5pm. Please book 24 hours in advance via 01603 737 531 or email info@norfolkmead.co.uk.
