Afternoon tea is the ultimate quintessentially British experience and tradition, something that everyone always really enjoys. There really is no better dining experience or food.
Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday, Mothers Day or just an excuse to catch up with friends, afternoon tea is always such an occasion and something indulgent to look forward to. It’s a real treat.
I’ve put together places where you can enjoy afternoon tea or high tea in Surrey. From hotels and restaurants to cafes, tea shops and afternoon tea options to enjoy as part of a bigger day out. I hope it inspires you to book your next afternoon tea experience – and find the best Surrey afternoon tea!
Afternoon tea experiences as gifts
Most places offer afternoon tea gift vouchers for all their different afternoon tea experiences available. So if you have a gift to buy, consider a voucher for a sparkling afternoon tea for two!
This post focuses on places that do afternoon tea for adults but if you’re looking for afternoon tea specifically for children, or really family friendly afternoon tea, take a look at our 12 Options For Children’s Afternoon Tea In Surrey.
One thing to be aware of is that many afternoon tea suppliers add on a discretionary service charge and they also often have multiple afternoon tea menus available = it’s not unusual for one hotel to have three different afternoon tea options available at any one time as well as an extensive tea menu available. If you need help deciding the staff are always happy to help and make suggestions.
