Afternoon tea venues in Norfolk
A uniquely British pastime, there’s nothing like settling down to afternoon tea while you’re on holiday – and Norfolk has some great hotels, tearooms and cafes. A view across the Broads is only enhanced by a fully stocked tea trolley, a plate of exquisite cakes and fantastic company. We strongly recommend that you treat yourself during your next self-catering holiday in the county.
There are numerous venues providing this afternoon treat, including a number of stately homes and halls, allowing you to admire Norfolk’s history as you enjoy your tea. Have we whetted your appetite? Here are just some of the locations offering the creamiest teas in the whole county…
The River Kitchen, Wroxham
In the Broadland town of Wroxham the River Kitchen has an outside seating area that overlooks the river. There is free mooring and car parking for customers. The chef uses only the freshest ingredients and those in season to prepare enticing cakes and tasty meals.
The Grove, Cromer
This tranquil Georgian guesthouse has some truly indulgent items on its afternoon tea menu, including Jasmine tea, homemade sandwiches, freshly baked scones with specially prepared preserves and an array of other teas and fruit drinks. In addition, guests can add a little decadence to their dining with a glass of Prosecco.
Heacham Manor Hotel
The Mulberry Restaurant at the beautiful Heacham Manor Hotel has four afternoon tea menus, including traditional, savoury, sweet, and Mulberry Royale, each offering an array of homemade and freshly prepared snacks in a pleasant setting, as well as more types of tea than you’re ever likely to see again in one place.
Barnham Broom Hotel
An idyllic countryside setting lends itself perfectly to taking afternoon tea, and it’s all on offer at Barnham Broom Hotel. Take tea on the lounge or in a cosy sitting room, and enjoy a huge range of traditional and more indulgent teas, cakes, and savoury snacks.
The Hoste, Burnham Market
Taking place in a boutique hotel rather than a grand hall or hotel the afternoon teas at The Hoste are luxurious. Indeed, this more intimate setting is ideal for those looking to catch up with friends or family, or anybody taking a break from exploring the Broads. Guests can enjoy a wide variety of teas, sweet and savoury treats, and a calming atmosphere.
Don’t forget Norfolk’s National Trust properties in the county. Visit Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall and Sheringham Park: a good cup of afternoon tea, accompanied by cakes of course, is always available at National Trust properties.
