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.

The journey to the Red Planet has become one of the great challenges of our time. In a ground-breaking exhibition at The Design Museum which opens on 16th October, discover how every detail in this extraordinary endeavour must be designed.
The Afternoon Tea will be hosted by Eleanor Watson, curator of ‘Moving to Mars’, who will give an exclusive insight into its design fiction, immersive experiences, new commissions and collaborations with contemporary designers. Discover how a Mars colony might evolve, from the spaceships to be used for the eight-month journey to the habitats that people will live in.
You’ll enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea, with a delicate array of finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of space-themed pastries.
