Afternoon Tea

A ritual fit for royalty 

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. Served in Cheneston's Restaurant, the Park Lounge or the Conservatory, it is a treat in more ways than one – indulge in a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches, accompanied by warm freshly baked scones piled high with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macarons. 

Enjoy a vast choice of teas at your leisure in fine surroundings, or perhaps a glass of Champagne, and experience the superior service for which The Milestone is renowned.

Top tip: Let us know which treat you like best and we'll be happy to bring you another, as well as free flowing top-ups of your selected tea or coffee.
