X is for eXtra Special...

At Beatons, we celebrate all things British; the elegance, our heritage and our traditions. One tradition that have embraced to its fullest, is the Afternoon High Tea; from what from we serve, to our service.  If you're familiar with our menu you’ll be aware our Teas consist of delicious home-made cakes, warm scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches; but we believe you deserve more! As of now we're launching our brand-new Afternoon High Teas – The Ascot and The Windsor.

Steeping in elegance and luxuriousness, The Ascot truly captures the best of being British; with exclusive finely crafted cakes - including our signature carrot cake, our renowned scones and both finger and open sandwiches. It's presented purely on our black and white china, as a nod to Cecil Beaton and his glorious costumes and stage set for the race scene in My Fair Lady. From the moment you sit down we hope you'll be captivated by the grandeur and finesse of The Ascot. Including a pre-tea appetizer and an exclusive tea list, this High Tea was designed to not only please your taste buds but to provide you with a memorable experience; perfect for a special occasion. 

''Very tempting and has a certain character... it's rather magnetic!'' Jenny, Beatons Tisbury 
As much we’d like to share the glorious details of this High Tea, we think it’s best not to ruin the surprise and for you to find out what treats await you. Due to the preparation involved in delivering The Ascot, it is available on a pre-booking basis. Please book by 4pm the day before; this way, we know you’ll be receiving the very best.  

Alongside The Ascot is The Windsor, the classic Afternoon High Tea but with a Beatons twist. Available every day in our tearooms, it Includes a selection of home-made cakes, warm scones with jam and cream, mini quiches and finger sandwiches; allowing you to experience English elegance any time you please. Free top-ups of your tea are also available. Like our previous option The Ashcombe, this is the perfect sharing High Tea, so whether your appetite is big or small, you can still enjoy it.  

To cater for as many customers as possible, both our Ascot and Windsor teas are available gluten free and can be made suitable for vegetarians.
