The Tea Party

£175 per person

Old meets new in this quintessentially British occasion. Following in the great tradition of the Captain Marryat afternoon tea in the main hotel drawing room and terrace we embark on a journey through sweet and savoury treats. Bake, slice and dice your way to the grand finale at the end of the class where you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass of fizz. We will take a break during the middle of the class for a delicious light lunch from our restaurant.

Due to the nature of the recipes used in this class we are unable to accommodate guests with an allergy or intolerance to gluten. Please contact our reservations team for details of classes which will be suitable or can be adapted for guests with this dietary requirement.

  • Watercress scones with salmon and lemon and dill cream cheese
  • Savoury choux buns: mushroom, chestnut and tarragon
  • Stem ginger shortbreads
  • Mini spiced apple loaf cakes
  • Lavender madeleines with elderflower cream

Dishes may be subject to slight change to reflect the seasonal produce available.

Arrive – 9.30am for refreshments, meet and greet with your Chef Tutor and enjoy a run through of the day.

In the middle of the day we will break for lunch around the chef’s demonstration area. With many of the classes you will be tucking into the food you have cooked and for some we will provide dishes from The Kitchen restaurant, all accompanied with a glass of wine. During the day we will show you around our kitchen garden and pop into our beautiful greenhouse, introducing you to our gardeners if they are tending to the beds at the time.

Finish – 3.30-4.00pm, take home your creations and The Kitchen apron leaving the washing up for our cookery school team!
