Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is a fabulously British tradition that we take very seriously indeed! We have the perfect setting – an enchanting Grade II listed Country House with pretty gardens and brimming with old English charm, so the magic begins as soon as you travel down our tree-lined driveway, leaving the hubbub of every day life behind…

Step inside, and your table awaits! Bedecked in crisp white linen with fresh flowers, English vintage china and gleaming silverware; this is where your romantic journey back in time begins. Choose from our exquisite afternoon tea menu to enjoy a selection of speciality loose-leaf teas, elegant finger sandwiches, freshly baked sweet delicacies and warm scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and preserves. For added glamour, our Celebration Afternoon Teas include a flute of Laurent Perrier champagne.

Traditional Afternoon Tea: £18.95 per person
with a flute of Champagne: £29.45 per person

Afternoon tea is served daily from 1:00pm – 5:00pm in our intimate dining room or, on fine days, in the gardens. Last sitting is at 3:00pm; booking is essential. Please note that every Wednesday is Ladies Day – enjoy a Traditional Afternoon Tea with a Bucks Fizz aperitif on arrival for just £18.95.

Afternoon tea gift vouchers are available; they make a wonderful gift whatever the occasion!

We believe Netherstowe House offers the widest range of afternoon teas in Staffordshire and have lovingly-designed our menu to ensure there’s a tea for every taste!
