Afternoon tea is special at the 15th century Swan at Lavenham Hotel and Spa all year round, but add beautiful decorations, roaring open log fires and some Christmas spirit to the mix and you have the perfect festive treat full of seasonal delights.
Served course-by-course on bespoke Royal Worcester fine bone china, The Swan’s Festive Afternoon Tea begins with a selection of delicate finger sandwiches including smoked salmon and cream cheese and a turkey and cranberry wrap. Festive cranberry and plain scones follow with clotted cream and strawberry jam plus a delicious selection of cakes including a Christmas fruit slice and macaron snowman.
Make your choice from a selection of Newby’s of London teas and infusions, which ensure there is a brew to suit all tastes, and add a celebratory glass of sparkling Champagne for an extra treat.
- The Swan’s Festive Afternoon Tea is served in either the elegant, beamed Gallery restaurant or cosy lounge throughout December from 12noon until 4pm Monday to Saturday, and 3pm until 5pm on Sundays, priced at £25 per person or £36.50 with the champagne.
