Enjoy afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is a great British institution – some tempting cakes, satisfying sandwiches and a large pot of tea just can't be beaten.

This traditional treat is a great way to spend one of our Dining Out Cards, and you'll find plenty of ideal establishments in which to enjoy it.

With their understated post-colonial elegance, Browns Bars & Brasseries are just the place for a spot of afternoon tea. Here it's served throughout the year.

Afternoon tea in the city

Rub shoulders with the academics at a classic Browns in Oxford, Cambridge or Bristol, as you enjoy the finest teas, cake and sandwiches these university towns have to offer.

Or enjoy a rejuvenating infusion alongside weary shoppers at Browns on Spiceal Street, just outside the Bullring shopping centre, or at The Light in Leeds or even on St Martin's Lane in the heart of London's West End.

Come spring, the pubs and restaurants in our Vintage Inns and hidden gem collections replace their mulled wine with a refreshing take on the classic afternoon tea. Sign up for our news and offers and we'll be sure to let you know the second they put the kettle on.
