Victorian Christmas Afternoon Tea 23 Nov - 30 Dec 2019*Posted 02nd September, 2019
A magical Victorian Christmas. Often customers comment that its like stepping back in time or reminds them of programmes such as Downton Abbey…..
We have studied the tables from the programme and also from visits to places such as Alnwick Castle and Chatsworth House, so the room is decorated in a Victorian style with tables holding tall candelabras with large flower arrangements, antique silver and glassware, holly & greenery adorn the tables. Tasteful Christmas music, staff dressed in Victorian costume, sights and smells of freshly baked scones and mulled wine tantalise the senses on arrival. The Victorian Christmas inspired Afternoon Tea includes mulled wine on arrival (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), a mixed round of sandwiches: fillings consist of delicious slow grown bronze turkey, with home-made cranberry sauce, home cooked ham, cooked in Cheshire apple juice with cloves, then roasted with demerara sugar, then hand-cut, and also our popular homemade potted beef, and award winning smoked salmon and cream cheese, which would also have been popular in Victorian times (vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, dairy free available by request at least 24hrs in advance); mouth watering locally made & home made Victorian Christmas inspired cakes on the top two tiers of your antique tea stand, with freshly baked warm cherry & cinnamon, stilton & walnut or plain with a hint of rose scones brought out separately and served with Devon clotted cream and locally made jam. Also included is a pot of tea per person from our extensive range of loose leaf teas, brewed to your liking or a cafeteria from our range of artisan coffees. All this, plus a gift makes our Victorian Christmas a very special event. It’s no wonder Davenports Tea Room was listed as one of the top ten places to visit at Christmas by The Times. Early booking essential £29.99 per person. (£10 per person non-refundable deposit required) Available between 23 Nov through till 30 Dec (*except Tuesdays and Christmas closure: 25-27; 31Dec - 4 Jan). Due to popular demand we have been asked for a Christmas/ Savoury combination based on our popular Luxury/Savoury combination. This Christmas/Savoury combination version has less cakes on one tier, and instead of the second tier of cakes has a tier of Christmas themed savoury items, such as pork pie, pate, cheeses, chutney, cheese biscuits etc. Sandwiches etc all included as above and the price per person is the same. Please let us know if you would prefer this version.
