Enjoy Afternoon Tea at Sandringham
Following refurbishment, Sandringham's restaurant will reopen tomorrow, to serve pre-booked afternoon tea on beautiful Chelsea botanical porcelain - a design closely derived from a large collection acquired by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
Afternoon tea at Sandringham will showcase produce grown on the estate, using many locally sourced ingredients and traditional recipes.
The menu includes hand cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones using flour milled on the Estate, with clotted cream and Sandringham jam and an array of sweet treats: individual Bakewell tarts, mini chocolate brownie cakes, classic Victoria sponge and Viennese raspberry creams, accompanied by speciality Sandringham blend teas and coffees or with a glass of Prosecco or a Sandringham Gin cocktail.
The Chelsea botanical collection porcelain is inspired by original pieces dating from c.1750 which can be seen today on display at Clarence House.
Made entirely by hand by skilled artisans in Stoke-on-Trent using traditional methods unchanged for over 250 years, using English fine-bone china, the porcelain features intricate patterns of graceful butterflies, fruits and colourful florals.
Alternatively, visitors can enjoy an al fresco picnic afternoon tea, at Sandringham from July, with a speciality takeaway afternoon tea developed for picnicking in the royal parkland.Takeaway afternoon tea-for-two picnic boxes cost £30.
The restaurant for 2021 will serve pre-booked afternoon tea and is open everyday and bank holidays.
Two sittings are available between 12-2pm or 3-5pm for a classic afternoon tea at £30 per person. Visitors can upgrade their experience to a sparkling tea with a glass of Prosecco or a Sandringham Gin cocktail for £35 per person.
