An extra-special Afternoon Tea

There’s nothing more quintessentially British than afternoon tea. At The Ickworth, we carry on this wonderful and delicious tradition with our special Wind in the Willows themed Afternoon Tea, inspired by Kenneth Grahame’s children’s classic.

Lovingly prepared

Our award-winning Chef and his team create the tastiest of treats and present them on a beautiful tiered stand so you can view all the delicious offerings. Your mouth will be watering from the moment it’s placed on your beautifully clothed table. Enjoy Ratty’s lemonade posset and Badger’s chocolate and berry swiss roll! This fabulously fun afternoon tea is available until the end of September.

The perfect setting

As summer arrives it brings new and invigorating flavours and fabulous vibrant colours, all of which are celebrated in The Ickworth Afternoon Tea. It’s served in the stunning and tranquil Conservatory which boasts beautiful and scenic views of the garden and on lovely warm summer days this opulent feast can be enjoyed on the Terrace. There’s nothing more enjoyable than eating the delicate sandwiches, beautifully made scones and delectable cakes and pastries matched with the perfect tea, from traditional breakfast to decaffeinated berry. Or why not enjoy a glass of fizz and do it in style?! Don’t be surprised if you can’t eat it all! We’d be delighted to package it up for you to take home – enjoy a little treat later on.

For a celebration or because you just fancy it!

The impressive and awe-inspiring setting combined with the delicious treats are equally suited to a special occasion with friends and family, whether it’s for a birthday celebration or an anniversary, or simply ‘just because’. Or why not buy an Afternoon Tea voucher as a gift for someone special.

Grand architecture, fabulous Afternoon Tea, a stunning setting and impeccable hospitality - whatever the occasion we’ll make it special.
