Spoonful of Sugar Afternoon Tea and learning the Art of Sabrage, all happening this November.


Spoonful of Sugar Afternoon Tea
Throughout November 2018

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone, recently highly commended at the 2018 Afternoon Tea Awards.

A Spoonful of Sugar is a newly introduced afternoon tea concept created by the hotel’s kitchen team that captures the fun and frivolity of the story with a variety of cleverly themed pastries. Menu items includes a chocolate pastry in the shape of Mary Poppins’ iconic floral hat, a black "chimney sweeps" macaron, a cupcake served with a chocolate spoon(ful of sugar) and many other sweet treats. A children’s version of the afternoon tea also includes kite-shaped biscuits covered in cherry ganache. Guests can taste The Milestone's new Little Nip from Every Sip cocktail with their afternoon tea, made with muddled raspberries, peach liqueur, peach purée, orange juice and ginger ale, while little guests can enjoy the mocktail version called the ...Most Delightful Way, served in a special medicine bottle. 

Price: £50.00; £59.00 with champagne; £25.00 for under 12s
