Quintessentially English afternoon tea served in the original windmill.

Afternoon tea is an English tradition dating back to the early 1800’s, when Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, used to become hungry around mid afternoon between lunch and dinner. She used to have tea, cakes and sandwiches prepared for her every day. She started to invite her friends to join her for this ceremony and eventually it caught on and afternoon tea as we know it today was born.

The original windmill building dates back to 1829 and is full of character and history, so we believe as a venue it lends itself perfectly to such a historic English tradition.

With prices starting at £15 pp, you can enjoy freshly homemade finger sandwiches, cakes and scones, all of which are traditionally English in origin, alongside a steaming pot of loose leaf tea. You can also upgrade to Champagne afternoon tea as well as an extensive drinks list being available to enjoy with or after your tea.

Indulge in a slice of English tradition where a warm welcome awaits in the windmill.
