Incredibly popular at Holdsworth House afternoon tea is a leisurely way to spend an afternoon or a fabulous way to party with friends (see our Afternoon Tea Party Package 30 guests). Served daily from 1.00pm – 5.00pm (excluding December)  in the Panelled Restaurant or in the historic Hall.

At all other times our traditional afternoon tea is available as follows:

A selection of sandwiches: egg and watercress, smoked salmon with cream cheese and chive, cucumber and dill, ham and tomato, Chef ’s selection of handmade pastries and sweet treats Freshly baked scones, Chantilly cream and Yorkshire preserves, tea or coffee served from vintage bone china crockery.

Our teas are prepared to order and we use lots of Yorkshire ingredients, such as preserves, eggs, beef and ham keeping everything as fresh as possible. Our pastry chef prepares the sweet treats and our famous scones from scratch, so pre-booking is required. If you have special dietary requirements, such as vegetarian, gluten free or other preference, just let us know in advance and we’ll prepare a special batch just for you.

“Afternoon delight -Booked an afternoon tea. Was warmly greeted and shown into one of the lovely rooms. Very attentive staff took our order, all three wanted a different tea, but the waitress didn’t blink an eye. The drinks arrived and whenever we needed either hot water or more tea – no problem. The three tired stand arrived with a variety of sandwiches, cakes and scones all elegantly presented and tasted fantastic. After a very leisurely meal we wandered the grounds and thought of when we would be returning. Tripadvisor Review 2014″

“Thank you very much for looking after my party of 10 yesterday.  The service, food, atmosphere were just amazing.  We certainly will be returning. Thanks again. Ms Beardshall, April 2015″
