Afternoon tea at our Durham hotel

Tickle your (French) fancy

We've put our afternoon tea on pause for a while. But you can rest assured we'll be back serving tempting selections of teatime treats from 6th January 2022.

A delicate selection of sandwiches, sweet treats, and pastries served outside in the sunshine or in our lounge filled with sink-into sofas. Sounds like a pretty good way to while away an afternoon to us. Oh, and if you're in the mood for bubbles too, just say the word.


A frightfully British ritual (that's just a touch rebellious)

Some things in life were made to be savoured, and afternoon tea is definitely one of them. Take your pick from a bitesize selection of our chef's take on the best of British sweet and savoury treats, all accompanied with your choice of loose leaf tea, artisan coffee, or even a glass of fizz if you fancy.

And for those who simply love the finer things in life, there's our Champagne Taster Afternoon Tea. It comes with a selection of tempting teatime classics and 50ml glasses of Taittinger Nocturne, Rose and Brut. Bliss.
