AFTERNOON Tea Week, this year from 8th to 14th August, is an excuse to indulge in cake, and scones and cream, and wonderful jam and, well, cake! And you get them all at The Queens Arms at Corton Denham.
The award-winning pub will be serving afternoon teas brimming with berries, Battenberg and bubbles, offering an irresistible combination of traditional British deadence and hand-picked home produce.
Whether it’s a traditional Full Afternoon Tea, a Royal Treat Champagne Afternoon Tea or a G&TEA (served with gin and tonic), visitors can tuck into a triple-tiered tower that measures its ingredients in metres, not miles.
From finger sandwiches filled with cured ham from the pub’s smallholding or salad from the kitchen garden, to handpicked berries and scones baked by the kitchen team, you can look forward to a tasteful tribute to the Somerset countryside, served with lashings of Chantilly cream.
