Afternoon Tea


Indulge in a Spot of Afternoon Tea

We are delighted to announce that Sopwell House is open!

Our popular Afternoon Tea is available to enjoy either in our Restaurant or on the terrace.

Please note all dining reservations must be pre-booked.  For full details on how we are intending to ensure everyone ‘stays safe’ at Sopwell House please click below.


Our popular Afternoon Tea features a beautiful tiered stand complete with delicious delicacies and pastries baked by our wonderful Chefs, homemade fruit and plain scones with Devonshire clotted cream and Strawberry preserve and traditional finger sandwiches.

You can even top it off with a refreshing glass of Champagne as well as enjoy your choice of luxury Newby loose leaf tea or coffee. Served in our 2 AA Rosette Restaurant or in our Cocktail Lounge, Afternoon Tea at Sopwell House is the perfect indulgent experience to share with friends, family or colleagues. Speciality and themed afternoon teas are also often available throughout the year including Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas.  Please note that during these periods only the Afternoon Tea offering for that occasion will be available.

From 1st August Sopwell House will be taking part in two dining promotions to help support our customers and our industry peers.

Invisible Chips

Invisible chips is a Hospitality Action initiative set up to provide financial assistance to people in the hospitality industry facing poverty due to Covid-19 - focused on keeping a roof over their heads and food on the table for those who have been hit hardest.

We are encouraging customers to buy a portion of invisible chips when they dine with us at the cost of £3.50.  The money from every portion sold is then donated to Hospitality Action. To find out more click on https://invisiblechips.org.uk/

Eat out to help out

We are delighted to be taking part in the governments dining initiative, giving our customers a 50% discount, (up to a maximum of £10 per person) off food and non-alcoholic drinks purchased at the hotel.

Valid Monday – Wednesday throughout the month of August.  No vouchers are required, just pre-book and quote "Eat out to help out" and the correct value will be automatically presented at the end of your meal.
