Afternoon Tea

For more than a decade we have served homemade Afternoon Tea at Matfen Hall. Our Executive Pastry Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, homemade scones, and sweet pastries. Our ingredients are sourced locally, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day.

The centerpiece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. In keeping with our ethics of sourcing as many products locally, our loose leaf teas are provided by Newcastle based company Ringtons, who have been in the tea making business for over a century. Working hand in hand with our Executive Pastry Chef’s they have carefully selected teas that will complement your food perfectly.

Gluten free afternoon teas available, please advise our team when making your reservation.

If you would like to visit us for afternoon tea we
