Wimbledon Afternoon Tea at Healing Manor is a luxurious treat to be enjoyed by all.
The tradition of Afternoon Tea dates back to 1840 when Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford would become hungry at around four o’clock in the afternoon. Evening meals were served fashionably late in the 1800’s leaving a long gap between lunch and dinner, so Anna would often enjoy a cup of tea and slice of cake. Friends were invited to join her and word spread until it become highly popular and fashionable in society – and so it continues today.
With a selection of savoury and sweet homemade treats on offer, Healing Manor’s latest Afternoon Tea has been inspired by one of England’s biggest summer traditions, Wimbledon.
With over 320,000 glasses of pimms, 28,000 kg of English strawberries and 25,000 scones enjoyed during the Championship’s our Wimbledon Afternoon Tea served here at Healing Manor Hotel gives a nod to all of the classic Wimbledon flavours with a few twists.
Scaman’s Eggs and watercress
Other savouries include a delicious Lincolnshire pork pie, vegetable crudities served with a pea hummus and a summer courgette, aubergine and tomato quiche.
What would a Wimbledon afternoon tea be with out pimms? An orange blossom scone is served with clotted cream and pimms jam.
Sweets include a strawberry bellini jelly as a nod to all of the strawberries and champagne enjoyed at Wimbledon. A pistachio and elderflower cake made with elderflower grown in the grounds here at Healing Manor is decorated to represent a tennis court, with a miniature white chocolate and coconut mousse tennis ball. To finish is a delicate crafted summer fruit tart with a sweet glaze.
Our afternoon tea is available as a gluten free, vegan, vegetarian or as a children’s menu, to be enjoyed by all.
