Celebrate Afternoon Tea Week in Exeter

Who doesn’t love Afternoon Tea? A cup of the nation’s favourite brew, some sandwiches and a few sweet treats to wind away a lazy afternoon, what could be better? It’s the perfect way to mark a celebration or to simply treat yourself and a loved one!

We have put together a selection of Exeter’s top spots to enjoy yours this week!

The Terrace has given the much loved classic a unique twist with their Afternoon Tea Plank. Sliders, sausage rolls, macaroons, lollipops and lots of homemade treats adorn a wooden serving plank that is enough to sweeten up your afternoon. Enjoy yours while taking in the amazing view of Exeter’s rooftops and skyline!

Enjoy the French vibes and relax while a selection of sandwiches, mini quiches, scones, cream & jam and your refillable pot of tea are served at your leisure. Conveniently located on the high street, you can pop in mid-shopping for a little piece of heaven.

For a uniquely vintage experience, visit The Hidden Treasure Tea Room on Fore Street. Begin with a choice of savoury teat time sandwiches, followed by homemade scones with clotted cream & jam, finished with an indulgent selection of homemade cakes, sweets and petit fours. All accompanied by locally roasted coffee or loose leaf tea. It’s an afternoon you won’t forget in a hurry!

Starting at 2.30, visit Tea on the Green and enjoy your afternoon tea overlooking the incredible view of the Cathedral. Begin with smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches and a lovely Cornish cheese platter, followed by scones, cream & jam and a choice of locally baked cakes. Sit outside to enjoy the afternoon sun, or inside for cosier setting.

The Cathedral Café is at the very heart of Exeter’s city centre, and what better place to enjoy an afternoon tea? Pre-book the Grandisson High Tea and enjoy homemade scones with clotted cream & jam, cakes and sandwiches with a pot of fresh tea. The stone vaulted ceiling and 18th century stained glass within the cafe makes this afternoon tea a truly unique and special experience.
