Heavy silver cutlery, crisp white linen and the “clink” of a fine bone china tea cup being returned to its saucer, all help to make afternoon tea at Luton Hoo very special.

So too are the High Tea menus which include tiers of plates piled with sandwiches, cakes and scones, with side dishes of strawberry jam and clotted cream. We offer a choice of blended teas from different parts of the world, and to make it an extra special occasion why not opt to enjoy our champagne high tea.

Tea can be enjoyed either in the regal setting of one of our period lounges or drawing rooms, under gleaming chandeliers and in the comfort of period sofas and armchairs.  We also serve morning coffee, Tea and light bites in the lounges from 11am to 10.30pm.  See our lounge menu for more details.
