Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is a classically English way to spend a leisurely afternoon with friends and family, particularly when enhanced by our spectacular panoramic view of Ullswater and the surrounding mountains. Sharrow Bay is renowned for the deliciousness of its generous Afternoon Teas; they have been served at the hotel right from its very early days when originally a hearty Afternoon Tea was provided for returning hill-walkers at Sharrow Bay -  including boiled eggs and soldiers! 

Under our Head Pastry Chefs Paula Richardson and Szabolcs Semetka, our teas remain a traditional elegant delight including a selection of open sandwiches, savoury pastries, home-made cakes, scones with jam and clotted cream, plus mini-desserts - served with a choice of teas or coffee. All for £27.50 per person.

We offer Champagne Afternoon Teas at £43 per person for the full Afternoon Tea with a glass of Champagne; and a lighter Cream Tea of scones and cakes with tea or coffee at £17.00 per person. Just depending upon whether you want more... or a little less.

A Scone with Jam & Cream, plus Tea or Coffee, at £8.50; or Homebaked Biscuits with Tea or Coffee at £4.50.

Afternoon Teas are served daily from 3.30pm to 4pm and are always very popular, so we advise early booking to avoid disappointment, please call +44 (0)1768 486301 or email [email protected]

Please be aware we welcome children over the age of 12 years.
