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 Afternoon Tea Awards, 2016. Served in Chenestons Restaurant, the Park Lounge or the Conservatory, it is a treat in more ways than one - a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches is accompanied by warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, as well as a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macaroons. 

Accompanied by a vast tea menu or perhaps a glass of champagne, enjoy tea at your leisure in fine surroundings and experience the superior service for which The Milestone is renowned.

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

High Tea


We are now serving our version of High Tea - a savoury feast fit for a king or queen served daily at 5pm. High Tea first became popular during Britain's industrial revolution in the 19th Century, when workers had to wait until the end of the day to enjoy their "tea time." After a hard day's work, the usual tea sandwiches and scones weren't substantial enough, thus transforming into the more filling High Tea which, for many, was their nightly supper. Dishes include Welsh Rarebit, warm mini pies, chicken noodle soup and maple syrup cured bacon scones with truffle butter and more.
