Make time for afternoon tea in our stunning Samphire restaurant

Cornwall's most decadent afternoon tea

It can be such a long time between lunch and supper. In summer, when the sun’s starting to dip, but the evening hasn’t kicked in, or in winter when you return tired from your coastal stomp but that dinner seems such a distant prospect.

Enter afternoon tea, invented for those foodless hours, designed to sweeten the soul. And at The Headland it’s an occasion to savour and linger over. A grand tradition in Cornwall’s grandest hotel with iconic Atlantic views: it’s charming, elegant, frivolous, and just plain fun. Don't forget to add a little extra indulgence with a glass of Champagne too!
