Relax and rewind with a delicious Afternoon Tea in Essex here at Prested Hall.

Undeniably a quintessentially British institution to be enjoyed with friends or family at your leisure.

Your afternoon tea is served on crisp white linen tablecloths with Tea in a tea pot, not just any teapot but our renowned glass teapot, with over a dozen different leaf teas to choose from including Organic Darjeeling and Egyptian Mint. Conversely, if you prefer Yorkshire Tea, please ask, we do that too!

Afternoon tea at Prested is freshly prepared by our talented chefs, thus our menu changes according to the season.  Afternoon tea is served with style in The Hall in one of our lovely reception rooms between 12.00noon -4pm. Alternatively it can also be enjoyed on the decking or lawns outside (weather permitting).

We change our afternoon tea menu regularly throughout the year, please see below our current menus that we have in place.

“I booked afternoon tea for nine. A special 80th birthday treat for a special friend. We had a wonderful time. Excellent food. Service. Especially our waitress Emily. Our table was in the window overlooking the lake. So peaceful. I would definitely book again. Highly recommend afternoon tea.” Tripadvisor review.
