Afternoon Tea

There is nothing as quintessentially English as afternoon tea, and nothing quite as special as an Afternoon Tea by the Sea at Hotel Miramar.

Our traditional tea features a delicate selection of sandwiches and dainty savouries, sweet treats and pastries and of course fluffy scones with jam and cream. Select your preference of tea from over twelve different types (or coffee should you prefer).

For those who don’t have a sweet tooth, you can still indulge in the experience with our Savoury Tea by the Sea. A platter of savoury deliciousness including cheese scones, open sandwiches, tempura prawns, mini pork pie, and stilton and pickle. Choose from our tea range or coffee, or why not pair with a fruity local cider.

There’s always time for tea, and a perfect excuse to indulge in some bubbles with our Champagne Tea by the Sea, or you may prefer BH1 Gin Tea by the Sea featuring a locally crafted small batch gin using a combination of 13 botanicals.

For smaller appetites, the Dorset Cream Tea means you can enjoy a hot cuppa accompanied by warm scones, jam, and cream. Gluten free and vegetarian options are also available.

Some things are meant to be savoured, so sit back and relax in the summer sunshine on the deck or the terrace, soak up breathtaking views, and enjoy every moment.

Afternoon Tea at Miramar is also served in the Drawing Room and The Library and is available every day of the week. Bookings are advisable.

We can also arrange a bespoke afternoon tea party in The Library for a larger group of guests for a wedding party, baby shower, birthday treat, anniversary or celebration of life.
