Whats happening at Davenports?....
The tea room remains temporarily closed until the end of September. We are however offering either a delivered or collect afternoon tea service Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun but please ask for other days as we may swop depending on demand or for family or bubble groups you can book a private afternoon tea cruise 4hrs, a cream tea cruise 2hrs or our popular fish & chip 2hr evening cruise is back.
Behind the scenes we are concentrating on making sure that customers, some regulars, some new, can still stay safe and celebrate special occasions or enjoy a special treat and we now offer a Savoury version too! by having a Davenports Afternoon Tea @ Home We are also busy working on a brand new website which will enable you to purchase more items online, such as some beautiful inexpensive new afternoon tea stands, and add individual items such as a bottle of Prosecco or Champagne or a bouquet of flowers to make a treat even more special. Importantly it will be more user friendly enabling you to use normal card payments.
Davenports Tea Room Re-opening
We aim to open the tea room part time at the end of September, subject to public health continuing to improve, however this will initially be for bookings only to enable us to track & trace. In the meantime, we invite those holding gift vouchers or who have deferred deposits to start booking in as we do expect high demand. From Mid-Nov to end of Dec is when we normally operate our Victorian Christmas and we hope to do this both part-time in the tea room, but also packaged in a box for you to enjoy at home, complete with themed cakes, mulled wine, crackers and our quiz and we hope to be able to bring back our popular combination version by then too. Belinda may even deliver it to your door in Downton Abbey style costume!
A full risk assessment has been conducted for both the tea room & the boat. We have researched extensively as many of you would expect Belinda to do & already hold a Cheshire West & Cheshire 5 star food hygiene rating, so we are completing extra cleaning to minimise the risk to customers & use appropriate PPE for the delivery or for welcoming you onboard narrowboat Duke Narrow boat Duke has advantages over the tea room, such as excellent air circulation as we can lift all or some of the sides, sole use as it is for private party bookings only, so until the end of September, we are concentrating on these options.
Cream Tea 2hr cruise at £25pp (includes cruise, scones & tea, fully licensed bar available)
Full Afternoon Tea 4hr Cruise £60pp (min 5 or £300) includes cruise, full afternoon tea & tea/coffee/soft drinks
