You will relive the nostalgia of years gone by, enjoying not only the delicious treats but also the incredible interiors, lighting, seating and beautiful panelling all replicated with painstaking attention to detail. 

Sit back, relax and enjoy a decadent and delicious afternoon tea specially prepared for you.
