Afternoon tea at The Montagu Arms in the New Forest

Afternoon tea

We're no strangers to tradition. Our tranquil corner of the country is rooted in centuries of quirks and oddities, but this timeless treat is up there with our favourites.

Quintessentially British indulgence

Set against the backdrop of our picturesque English country garden, a traditional afternoon tea unfolds - undisturbed, except for the gentle hum of bumblebees and the clinking of china cups. Served over three tiers, our afternoon tea comes with dainty finger sandwiches, delicate pastries, warm scones fresh from the oven, and lashings of homemade jam and clotted cream.

The perfect gift

Gift vouchers
