Afternoon Tea

We have resumed our Afternoon Tea service and look forward to welcoming you back. 

Bookings will be available Wednesday through till Sunday, from 1pm - 5pm (5pm is the last sitting).

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone, recently highly commended at the 2019 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

Taste 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.
