A taste of England

The tradition of Afternoon Tea was started by the English aristocracy in the mid-19th century. The purpose of this between-meals snack was to assuage growling stomachs between lunch and dinner, and it originally consisted of bread, biscuits and cakes, accompanied by a cup of tea. Afternoon Tea eventually evolved to consist of a plethora of dishes, and the ritual spread throughout the world.

Finger sandwiches

Afternoon Tea is served on a tiered tray. One typically starts with the bottommost dish. There you will find a variety of finger sandwiches.

Fluffy scones and homemade jams

On the middle dish you will find tasty scones, baked in the Bristol's own bakery. The scones are accompanied by our homemade jam, made from seasonal berries.

Sweet temptations created by our pastry chef

It’s up to you to decide whether to save the best for last, but we can promise that the top level of the tiered tray is something to look forward to. Here you can expect a selection of sweet, exquisite pastries from the hotel's own patisserie.

Don’t forget the tea!

As the name suggests, you will also be offered a selection of teas when you order your Afternoon Tea. We recommend Earl Grey or English Breakfast Tea, as these do not compete with the flavours of the food. Should you fancy another tea, we offer a wide assortment of teas – including our house blend.

The luxury version

For a particularly extravagant Afternoon Tea experience, you have the option of ordering champagne. For an additional charge you can enjoy a glass of luxurious ‘R de Ruinart Brut’ – a tart and fresh champagne with creamy foam.
