The plush and cosy bar has a very traditional and opulent feel, with red leather banquette seating and a wealth of antique brass fittings. It offers an outstanding selection of premium whiskies and British gins, Champagne, vodkas and cognacs as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines, including signature vintages from our sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson.

Our traditional Afternoon Tea is composed of a superb choice of loose-leaf teas and refreshing infusions served with an irresistible selection of indulgent treats. Start with our delicious freshly made dainty English sandwiches and seasonal pastries. Then move on to our delectable, hand-baked traditional British scones with lashings of clotted cream and lavish strawberry preserve. This time-honored English tradition will make you feel like a duke or duchess in our intimate library that transports you to a 19th-century stately home. Make the experience even more special with a glass of Champagne to begin to really emulate the British nobility.
Travel back in time to witness this exclusive window in the life of a Victorian lady. Allow your costumed guide to host you for tea and discover the complex and rich cultural history of traditional English tea. Afterwards, you can take a lesson in the mysterious and ancient art of tasseography, or tea leaf reading. Obtain the skills that generations of English ladies have used to entertain and enthral their guests, by letting the leaves forecast the future. This fortune-telling experience is available for groups of 15 or more.
