Literature, glamour and a dash of adventure form the perfect recipe for our new afternoon tea. Anticipate the best seasonal fare from the British Isles, expertly crafted into an imaginative offering – all accompanied by delicious teas and indulgent extras. Our Head Pastry Chef – Pierre Morvan – has been inspired by the famous tales of Jules Verne, a native of his French home town, Nantes, to bring our literary afternoon tea to life.

Whether you prefer afternoon tea with bubbles, a delicious pot of tea or both, there's a journey for everyone. Whichever you choose, we guarantee this will be a definitive experience, full of storytelling, tradition and creative flair.

Opening times: serving afternoon tea from 12pm-6pm
