Afternoon Tea at Holdsworth House
For 60 years Holdsworth House has been the place to celebrate milestone birthdays and special occasions with a delicious afternoon tea. Take a seat in one of our historic rooms and soak up the cosy atmosphere of our Jacobean manor. Original wood panelling, large open fireplaces, antique furniture and vintage china all set the scene for a quintessentially British experience.
On warmer days take your tea and a glass of fizz on the garden terrace or in the Colonnade Courtyard. Wherever you sit, you'll have an interesting, feature-packed view.
Holdsworth House afternoon tea is served 1.00pm-5:00pm daily in the restaurant, hall or bar.
"My husband bought an afternoon tea voucher for our wedding anniversary. What a beautiful old house! With the old paintings and mullioned windows it feels almost like being in a small stately home! We've watched the hotel on Last Tango in Halifax and it looked even better in real life. You choose your type of tea first and you're brought a massive teapot, then your cake stand appears. We ended up having a couple of items boxed up to take home, it was so filling. Honestly the scones were the best we've ever had!!!"

The Abraham Brigg Room is a ground floor room for large afternoon tea events. The Stuart Room - our main banqueting suite - has a private bar, cloakrooms, dance floor and adjoining Colonnade Courtyard for events up to 150 guests.
