Afternoon Tea

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to

the ceremony known as afternoon tea”

Henry James – The Portrait of a Lady

Served between 2pm and 4pm, our Glynde Afternoon Tea is a delightful way to enjoy a pre-opera treat before visiting the famous Glyndebourne Opera House or it can be a way to celebrate birthdays, engagements, a get together with friends or even serve as a wedding breakfast.

  1. My wife and I were taken today, as a present from our daughter, to the Little Cottage Tea Rooms in Glynde for a celebration tea. We had the Verona selection and first enjoyed the savoury snacks on Italian
    Cebatta bread, including Parma ham ,olives, soft cheese, chopped tomatoes, two diferent salami’s
    and green salad. A glass of sparkling wine plus tea in a pretty tea pot was most welcome. Next came a selection of scones ( fruited or plain) with strawberry jam and delicious clotted cream. followed by a choice of home made sponge cakes, absolutely mouthwatering. Our afternoon tea was equal to any “posh” hotel , probably better. Service was excellent with aplomb that only comes with loving what you are doing. My personnel score is .9.5 out of 10 . Love to return in the summer and sit in the garden.
