Coventry and Warwickshire have some amazing places for afternoon tea and it’s the perfect treat for a loved one, whether you’re celebrating a hen do, birthday or just fancy something a little bit special. Here are some of the top places in Coventry and Warwickshire for a sumptuous afternoon tea.
The Cosy Club
The Cosy Club is just a stone’s throw away from Old County Court Hotel and situated near the Cathedral Quarter. It’s the perfect place for a graduation celebration due to its location. The Cosy Club has an opulent decor and has a balcony terrace so it’s the perfect place to sip some prosecco with your afternoon tea.
Cafe Rouge is a matter of seconds away from the Belgrade Plaza serviced apartments and situated directly below. You can have a choice of indulgent afternoon teas with a French twist. You can even get a cheese afternoon tea with three tiers of cheese - think gooey camembert and croque monsieur and you can complement it with a glass of French wine.
Afternoon tea is around £30 for two people and there’s even an option for children too.
The Rising Cafe is a little gem situated by the Cathedral. It feels like a cafe that’s straight out of the forties with the memorabilia and decor from yesteryear. All proceeds of the cafe go to the Betel charity which is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment. So you can eat cake and also know you’re doing something good! The afternoon tea’s feature scones with proper Rodda’s clotted cream, jam and a selection of sandwiches and cakes.
The afternoon tea is delivered in the Orangery at Stoneleigh Abbey overlooking the stunning grounds of the Abbey and is set in the perfect place for a lovely afternoon tea. You can also go for a walk through the grounds and sit out along the waterfront and watch the world go by. You can choose from a selection of sandwiches and cake and the scones are warm with oodles of cream and jam. The question is, which one do you put on first?
The Undercroft at St.Mary’s
Situated on Bayley Lane on the same street as Old County Court, its a quirky cafe in the Cathedral Quarter. The cafe is situated in the medieval undercroft of St.Mary’s Guildhall. The food is even prepared in medieval kitchens that have catered in the past for royalty. Sit in the courtyard area or within the atmospheric cafe and indulge on dainty sandwiches, cakes, scones and speciality teas.
