Best afternoon tea in Bournemouth




Derby Manor

The newly refurbished Derby Manor is pure opulence and excellence – it has that WOW factor from the second you walk through the door.

Their Cream Tea includes finger sandwiches, scones and sweet pastries, served fresh every day in their stunning restaurant. Choose from Traditional, Bubbly or Champagne tea.

What’s more, high tea is the perfect way to taste test this new venue, and make plans to return for their famed tasting menu dinner or Sunday lunch.

Green House Hotel

Bournemouth’s original and best eco hotel is also famed for its food. Arbor Restaurant, helmed by Andy Hilton, has won numerous awards and is ideal for special occasions. Their Sunday roast is particularly popular, with all ingredients sourced within 50 miles of the hotel to boost their green credentials. But now the weather is warming up, thoughts turn to afternoon tea. You can eat in the restaurant or, if the weather is fine, the beautiful grounds.

Say thanks to Mum this Mother’s Day with a luxurious afternoon tea (pictured above) where each Mum is treated to a complimentary glass of Prosecco to accompany their delicious treats. Beth is the brains behind the delicate cakes and pastries, as well as the stunning presentation. Tea is served a three-tiered wooden tree. Your finger sandwiches come with a choice of traditional fillings such as smoked salmon or egg and cress. Cakes, of course, will be prepared by Beth from scratch.

The Orchid Hotel

The Orchid Hotel is one of the leading contemporary Bournemouth hotels and is located in the exclusive East Cliff area. This chic boutique hotel is situated close to the award winning Bournemouth Beach and five minutes’ walk to the cosmopolitan town centre.

Remodelled completely as part of the stunning recent refurbishment, the lounge and bar now form the hub of the welcoming, open-plan space that greets you upon arrival. The gentle buzz of conversation, the civilised clink of glasses, the fresh and at once familiar sights and sounds of the heartbeat of our warm and welcoming hotel… With subtle lighting, the natural, rustic textures of wood and stone offset by a contemporary palette of vivid colours, the ambience is distinctly laid-back and informal. In all, a pleasing fusion of what’s best about Bournemouth’s chilled-out beachy vibe and a subtly sophisticated metropolitan chic.
