Overview

Introduction

The origins of Afternoon Tea in Britain can be tracked back to the early 19th Century and is a tradition that continues to be enjoyed today.

Afternoon Tea at Royal Ascot is truly special. We partner with world-renowned tea experts to create bespoke loose-leaf blends. Our experts work with small tea gardens, from Malawi to the foothills of the Himalayas, securing unique harvests using sustainable practices. We then match the fragrant teas to our delicious range of sandwiches, scones, strawberry and Champagne preserves. Plus not forgetting handmade cakes of course.

We would be delighted to showcase our Afternoon Tea to you in March. Please register your interest using the form above.

We have the expertise and flexibility to cater for an executive meeting for 10, or an exclusive event for up to 3,000 people and our 300 meeting rooms (including 247 private boxes) will ensure that your objectives are fulfilled.
