Nestled in the beautiful village of Glynde within the South Downs National Park, our aim is to provide a delightful setting for indulging in a traditional English afternoon tea, served on pretty vintage cups, saucers and teapots. Ideal after a walk in the country side, a visit to Glynde Place or before the opera at the famous Glyndebourne Opera House or for a long awaited catch up with friends and family.

The Tea Room has a beautiful spacious garden to the rear and the premises are fully licensed and is available for private parties and functions whatever the occasion. So, whether it’s an anniversary, birthday party, engagement, baby shower, hen party or any other special occasion you can be sure it will be an elegant occasion with exceptional service.

The Tea Room will open it’s garden during June, 2021 on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11.30 am until 4.30 pm. We are now operating on a booking only basis but if you are passing please always ask as we may have the capacity to accommodate you.

During the Easter, May and summer school holidays we open every day except Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dog’s are welcome in our garden and must be kept on a lead. During inclement weather we have a gazebo with blankets and hot water bottles available to keep the owner’s snug!

  1. Had afternoon tea with my daughter and parents yesterday and just wanted to say how delicious it was. Looking forward to coming back in the summer and sitting in your lovely garden. Thank you.

  2. Hello Debbie and David, We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our Afternoon tea today. The food was amazing and very tasty, your garden is beautiful and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed just chatting away in the sunshine with no feeling of being rushed. David you were a brilliant host serving us our goodies. We especially enjoyed the bubbly. Thank you for the information about the walk from Lewes we will look into this further. We will most definitely be back. Kindest regards Jan, Lynne, Sarah and Dawn.
