Wind in the Willows inspired Afternoon Teas
To coincide with our reopening in May 2021, we are launching two new Wind in the Willows-inspired Afternoon Teas for guests to enjoy at The Ickworth. This special tea will be served from the time of reopening and throughout spring and summer until the end of September.
The Ickworth's Afternoon Tea theme for this summer has been inspired by Kenneth Grahame’s children’s classic, Wind in the Willows, and features some of the favourite food of the famous characters including Mr Toad, Badger, Ratty and Mole.
Afternoon Tea for Adults
The Wind in the Willows adult menu includes a selection of finger sandwiches as well as delights including a truffled cheddar and ham scotch egg with pickles, freshly made savoury and sweet scones, and a number of desserts including Ratty’s lemonade posset and Badger’s chocolate and berry swiss roll.
£27 per person
Upgrade the Adult's afternoon tea to include a glass of award-winning Hambledon English sparking wine.
£35 per person
Afternoon Tea for Children
The children’s tea includes a selection of sandwiches and crudités, ‘Toad in the Hall’ Sausage Tartlet, and a special creation to delight little guests: Mole’s boiled egg and soldiers…..with a twist. Served in an egg shell, the ‘boiled egg’ has been reimagined. Instead of egg white, children will be served a mascarpone whipped mousse with the egg’s yolk being replaced by a mouth-watering mango gel! No boiled eggs would be served without soldiers and for an indulgent twist, children will be able to enjoy a chocolate pastry finger which can be dipped in for a total sensory and taste sensation! Squeals of delight and laughter are expected all round!
£15 per child
