New Afternoon Tea for Summer at Jesmond Dene House
Afternoon Teas at Jesmond Dene House are renowned for being special but we're delighted to say they are now even better. Launching just in time for summer and perfect for a special event, we've changed our cakes and added some savoury additions to the selection. All about indulgence, presented on a traditional tea-stand and a feast of gorgeousness on the eye they now include special sausage rolls and melt-in-the-mouth quiche baked in our kitchen, in addition to finger sandwiches, three types of scone with clotted cream and home-made jams, and a gorgeous selection of wicked cakes.
Served daily, choose from a sofa in the Cocktail Bar or Billiard Room, a table in the Garden Room or Restaurant or, if the sun is shining a table on the terrace. We've also an array of drinks that can be added to the occasion from Prosecco and Palmer & Co Champagne, to a delicious selection of cocktails. Or, if you prefer an alcoholic tea we now also have on our menu 'The Tale of Earl Grey' tea & gin composition and 'The Tale of Tangier' tea & rum composition from local company NOVELTEA.
