What Can I Expect

This vintage afternoon tea in Leicestershire is a very civilised affair! Guests tell us they love the traditional setting, the service and the excellent range of loose-leaf teas on offer at this well-known tea rooms in Melton Mowbray.

As Leicestershire's official 'Rural Capital of Food', the market town of Melton Mowbray is already famous for its Pork Pies and cheeses and is a thoroughly lovely place to take your afternoon treat for two. 

The tea room is upstairs in a beautiful Grade II Listed building overlooking the town's main market place - a hub of culinary and agricultural activity for centuries. The room is elegantly decorated with period furniture, traditional chintz and china crockery. And, as everyone knows, drinking tea out of a proper cup and saucer makes it taste even better.

Seeing as it's Melton Mowbray, this luxury tea for two includes a slice of pork pie (or quiche if you'd rather), as well as a serving platter of delicate sandwiches. A selection of homemade cakes is also included, in addition to that time-honoured treat; scones with clotted cream and jam.

Your tea is served in antique style, with a teapot, tea strainer and sugar cubes with silver tongs on crocheted doilies. With over 30 blends and infusions to choose from, including a variety flavours from Earl Grey and Darjeeling, to Chai and Fruit Frenzy blends, afternoon tea tucked away inside this Leicestershire parlour could last longer than you think!

Having been awarded the Tea Guild Award of Excellence in 2012, it's no wonder that an afternoon at this lovely traditional tea room is proving to be really popular. There's nothing quite like settling into a comfortable chair and watching the rain lash the windows outside while you tuck into a range of freshly-made sandwiches and cakes, a steaming pot of tea infusing gently on the table.

A great way to spend an afternoon whatever the weather, or to make a foodie trip around the East Midlands even more enjoyable, afternoon tea at Leicestershire's gourmet capital is the perfect gift.

We were well looked after and the quality of the food was varied and excellent. However I do think it was rather pricey and would not be willing to pay £15 per head for what was served

Lovely experience and one of the best afternoon teas I've had. Fabulous selection of teas and not in a bag :-)
