Introducing our Beatrix Potter-inspired afternoon teas

An afternoon tea with sandwiches, pots of carrots and a bunny on the table beside it.

We’ve designed an 'edible garden' afternoon tea to celebrate Beatrix Potter’s wonderful stories and illustrations.

We're offering one afternoon tea made especially for children, and one for adults, both incorporating Potter’s best-known characters and drawing on her life as well as her classic tales for inspiration.

Adult's afternoon tea

The adult menu celebrates Potter’s life outside her writing, with a Herdwick lamb pie to reflect the years she spent breeding Herdwick sheep on her Lake District farm and a gin-based drink called Hill Top Hurrah! It also honours the wonderful characters from her stories, from Benjamin Bunny’s carrot cake to Mrs Tiggywinkle’s rhubarb and custard crunch.

Children's afternoon tea

The children’s tea includes healthy options of a hummus and crudités flowerpot and fresh carrot and orange juice, together with a selection of sandwiches and a fresh baked scone.

Peter Rabbit is one of children’s most beloved and iconic characters, and kids will love the gingerbread biscuits shaped like him and made using the 168-year old recipe that was discovered in Potter’s very own recipe book.

This limited edition afternoon tea is £25 per adult and £12.50 for children. The 'edible garden' afternoon tea is available until 20th September.
