Afternoon Tea reinvented at the Royal Crescent Hotel

The Great British Afternoon Repast has been given a very elegant makeover at one of Bath’s most elegant addresses, bringing a whole new dimension to an already sumptuous array of gourmet offerings. The Royal Crescent Hotel’s fascinating fresh take on the timeless tradition of Afternoon Tea flaunts a tantalising selection of afternoon delight, including the decadent ‘Duke of York’ (a ‘masculine’ array for lovers of strong flavours, bringing Bath Chap Beignets, Croque Monsieur and Duck Liver Onion Seed and Grape Barquette to the tea table), the classic ‘Royal Crescent’ (“an ode to afternoon tea” utilising the very best locally sourced produce) and the indulgent ‘Elizabeth Montagu’ variation (a substantial collection of dishes including Hot Crispy Kedgeree and Spiced Goats’ Curd and Lemon Profiteroles). The new-look menus were all masterfully created by Royal Crescent head chef David Campbell and head pastry chef Catherine Lock, inspired by the history of the hotel and its illustrious guests. Each of the three teas cost £32pp, can be upgraded with a Champagne Flight for an extra £17pp and are available for your delectation between 1.30-6pm daily (last orders 4.30pm) from Thursday 12 March; once tried, we guarantee you’ll never look a boring old scone in the eye again…
