Enjoy Luxury Afternoon Tea in the Lake District

There is nothing more quintessentially English than observing the tradition of afternoon tea.

Cal Byerley the Forest Side’s Head Pastry Chef is a firm believer in remaining faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones and crumpets served warm, and sweet pastries.

Our ingredients are painstakingly locally sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day.

Sandwiches include tasty treats such as Cartmel smoked salmon and sour cream and Cumbrian ham hock, capers and tomato chutney.

There are scrumptious freshly baked scones, toasted crumpets and a range of totally tempting pastries with delights such as rowan shoot éclair and raspberry marigold leaf and apple macaroon.

One thing we mustn’t forget is that the true star of any afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. Our wonderful Jing teas have been carefully selected from the among Asia’s finest teas including…

Organic Bohea Lapsang, Jade Sword, Assam, Chai, Dragon Well, White Peony and Flowering Jasmine and Lily to name a few.

Sample Afternoon Tea Menu

A traditional English afternoon tea doesn’t get more luxurious than when served with a chilled glass of something sparkling – we recommend a glass of Sottoriva Malibran (Brut) from Vento in Italia – a rather moreish dry, light wine with a delicate aroma.

Served with a glass of selected fizz afternoon tea is £29.50 per person

Afternoon Tea at The Forest Side is served from 3pm until 4.30pm Wednesday – Sunday.

(Please note that reservations are required at least 24hrs prior to joining us for afternoon tea).
