What better way to indulge over the festive period season than with a lusciously refined afternoon tea in the grand environment of Port Lympne’s mansion, bathed in a glow of a crackling log fire.

Settle down to enjoy this quintessential British classic in the historic surroundings of one of England’s finest Grade II listed country houses, once a favourite retreat for royalty, aristocracy, prominent politicians, authors and playwrights.

The hotel’s masterly pastry chef has designed a delectable festive menu, featuring seasonal takes on tantalising traditional delights, such as elegant bronze turkey finger sandwiches, buttery scones with spiced cranberry and orange preserve, candied chestnuts, rich chocolate Yule logs and mice pie cheesecake.

Accompanied by a wide selection of loose-leaf teas and coffees, these delicately crafted savoury bites, pastries and desserts, served on traditional tiers, will delight the palate and ensure the experience is truly the cherry one the decadent Christmas cake.
