Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea

As the country prepares to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s remarkable 70-year reign, there is no better time for an Afternoon Tea. The Headland Chefs have adapted the menu for May and June to reflect The Queen’s longevity and stature, and our treats and sandwiches include the quintessential British dishes we are renowned for.  

Taste the quintessential cucumber and cream cheese, British salmon enrobed in a lemon infused dill sauce and of course, the historic Coronation Chicken. Sample the Jubilee shortbread biscuit with a platinum finish, the delicate Victoria Sponge and of course Her Majesty The Queen's favourite; The Queen's Chocolate Cake. Not to forget our scones topped with oodles of Cornish clotted cream and lashings of jam.
