High Tea Menu

All jokes aside, your high tea menu is obviously one of the most important parts of your event. We’ve been in the business of high tea for long enough now to know what works and what doesn’t in terms of food so we’ve worked super hard to put together our selection of scrumptious high tea menu options for you to choose from. 

 

All of the classics are in there, from cucumber sandwiches and scones with jam and cream to citrus tarts and raspberry Bakewell slice with a dash of more modern high tea treats to keep things fresh and exciting. 

 

Our high tea menu is offered in conjunction with our full service high tea catering packages. We do not offer a catering only option. If you only require food and not crockery hire we highly recommend our good friends at Petit Beurre Co
