Down Hall Roald Dahl Afternoon Tea HR

Inspired by Dahl’s iconic childhood books and in honour of his 100th birthday on the 13th of September, this creative afternoon tea is a playful retreat from city life and will run throughout the month. Available daily from 2pm to 5pm and priced at £21.50 per person or £28.50 including a glass of Champagne, guests can while away the afternoon in chic country style.

Delight in a fun-filled chocolate Wonka Bar on arrival, then tuck straight into to a Peach Jam Tart inspired by James and the Giant Peach and a mini chocolate fudge cake from Matilda. Delectable finger sandwiches include fillings of Coronation Chicken (Fantastic Mr Fox would approve) and Snozzcumber that the BFG would love. No afternoon tea would be complete without warm scones with lashings of sweet jam and clotted cream.

A wide variety of tea, served by the pot, includes choices of Earl Grey, orange spice, wild raspberry, Meyer lemon and Moroccan mint whilst gourmet speciality coffee is also available.

Will you find the golden ticket? Every week one lucky winner will enjoy prizes including an overnight stay at the hotel for two with a three-course dinner and full use of the spa with treatments.

Served in the historic splendour of Down Hall, the delicious Roald Dahl Afternoon Tea makes for an unforgettable afternoon for kids and adults alike. Following a £7million refurbishment this year, the gorgeous hotel boasts a brand new spa, an AA-rosette awarded restaurant and cosy new rooms, all set within 110 acres of gardens and woodlands to get your imagination flowing.
