Afternoon Tea

Have you ever felt that ‘sinking feeling’, you know that emptiness that occurs in the late afternoon with dinner still some way off?

The 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th Century came up with a solution that we all enjoy today, a pot of fragrant tea with delicious light cakes, pastries and sandwiches. Today, as then, social hostesses enjoy afternoon tea as a way of gathering to enjoy a little social gossip whilst sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.

At Knockderry we like to mix the traditional and the contemporary.  You can choose to join us for a traditional afternoon tea or indulge in our more modern approach with a Scottish Gin afternoon tea. Our Gin tea includes a selection of 3 Scottish gins with a modern twist on the traditional afternoon tea menu. Prices for our Gin tea start at £24 and can be booked any day of the week with 24 hours notice.
