Afternoon Tea Catering
What We Offer
As afternoon tea caterers, we have lots of experience in providing a wide range of afternoon teas. Whether it’s an afternoon tea platter available to order for a small gathering or an afternoon tea wedding reception we are able to offer something for everyone.
Afternoon tea and of course High tea is such a great way to feed even the most picky of people. An afternoon tea party makes sure that all your guests are catered for.
A few details
What You Can Expect
Our afternoon tea selection has been created to make sure that all dietary needs can be catered for. In catering it is one of the most important things to make sure that the food provided ticks all the boxes.
Finger sandwiches, cakes, homemade scones, cream and jam are the starting catering point and then we can build your menu to your wishes to include savoury items and making a high tea.
Afternoon tea weddings are very popular and our vintage china on crisp white linen really does make a statement. Of course, there are so many other ways to enjoy it. Why not organize an afternoon tea party with family and friends in your garden or home ? Or as a final farewell tribute at a wake, an afternoon tea is always welcomed.
We'll take care of it
What You Don't Have to Worry About
If you like the sound of finger sandwiches with the crusts cut off, but worry about all the china needed. Please don’t ! We provide all your linen, vintage china, including 3 tier cake stands, tea pots, sugar bowls and milk jugs.
Just because you may have a dairy intolerant or gluten free guest or indeed you are yourself – again we will make sure that our catering takes care of that without a separate catering menu being needed.
Our staff will take care of your needs, and if it’s a wedding afternoon tea, then we will make sure that your tea pots are full and you have plenty of milk – so that you and your guests can relax and enjoy the easy style of afternoon tea party catering offers.

This is the second time that we have used your company for our family's wake catering arrangements. You truly are now like one of the family. I cannot thank you enough for the care and consideration and time you gave to us. It was a great comfort to us to know that you were there to take care of all the little things we hadn’t even thought about and I know that you did far more than any other catering company would have done.
Thank you, Dawn.
Thank you Dawn for helping us make my Mother's gathering such a very special occasion.
