Summer Afternoon Tea

Join us this summer for Afternoon Tea in the Garden Room

Our chefs have been preparing some new creations for our Afternoon Tea menu, served in the Garden Room at the Royal York Hotel.

Over the summer, you will be able to enjoy a selection of savouries and sandwiches made with local ingredients, such Yorkshire ham and Harrogate Blue cheese. Our freshly baked scones are served with jam and clotted cream – it’s up to you to decide which goes on first!

The highlight of our Afternoon Tea is our selection of fancy cakes, featuring a Raspberry and white chocolate slice, Strawberry and Pimm’s tart, Passion fruit pavlova, Lemon sherbet macaron, Chocolate orange éclair and Battenberg cake.

Afternoon Tea cakes at the Royal York Hotel

Afternoon Tea is for all ages – so we’ve created a special children’s tea featuring a Double chocolate brownie, Mini 99’ ice cream and a Raspberry cupcake.

Of course, the most important element to Afternoon Tea is the tea itself. Along with the experts at the Rare Tea Company we have handpicked a selection of beautiful teas and herbal infusions.

So join us for a pot of tea and a glass of champagne, and celebrate a special occasion – or just a summer’s afternoon.

The safety and wellbeing of our guests and colleagues is our top priority, and ready for when we reopen to the public, we have implemented new hygiene procedures above and beyond our standard protocols, as well as social distancing measures, in line with government and public health advice. We've also introduced the IHG Clean Promise giving guests extra reassurance. Find out more at www.ihg.com/clean
