Afternoon Tea


Whichever hotel you choose, whether under the Florida sun, South African wilderness or by an Autumnal English fireplace, you'll find home homemade treats and delicacies, that will touch, tantalise and delight your palate.

Afternoon tea is a Red Carnation tradition and speciality, served every afternoon with care and style at all of our hotels.  Served from 3pm in florida, Switzerland, and South Africa, it's in England that afternoon tea finds its finest expression.

In our six London hotels and at Summer Lodge in Dorset you’ll be regaled with the full late afternoon experience: a range of teas, a selection of sandwiches, freshly made cakes, pastries, and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and home made strawberry jam. Throughout the year you’ll also have the opportunity to sample some of our speciality afternoon teas including a deliciously indulgent Champagne Afternoon Tea. English High Tea is a ritual that we believe needs to be respected and is an essential part of this wonderful tradition, that revives and satisfies.

Wherever you are, just let us know how you like to take your tea and we’ll do our best to oblige.
