Tynley Hall's afternoon tea is taking on a bit of a Scottish twist in celebration of Burns Night. The Highland Afternoon Tea will be on offer from the 19th till the 28th of January and features the same stunning rooms and excellent service as the regular Tyney Hall afternoon tea, but everything is just a little bit more Scottish.
The menu features chocolate and raspberry cranachan, a Scottish dessert traditionally made with whipped cream, whisky honey, raspberries and toasted oatmeal that has been soaked in whisky. This particular one features Dalwhinnie 12-year. There's also a deliciously sweet Millionaire's shortbread. These join regular afternoon tea favourites like scones and finger sandwiches, and there are some other Scottish treats, both sweet and savoury, to come.
Afternoon tea is served across Tynley Hall's period lounges. It is the perfect environment to indulge a little and enjoy something that's a bit fancy. The Highland Afternoon Tea is available 2.30pm until 5.00pm from Monday to Saturday and from 3.00pm - 5.00pm on Sundays and bookings can be made for up to 8 people. Bookings are £29.50 per person and can be made by calling the reservations team on 01256 764881.
If you can't make it for the special Burns night edition, you can book a spot at Tynley Hall's regular afternoon tea year round. Or, for even more Burns night festivities, book a spot at their Burns Night Supper for a traditional Scottish feast complete with a bagpiper and the cutting of the haggis.
Tynley Hall Hotel & Gardens is located in the small town of Rotherwick, about a 45 minute drive out of Southampton. As well as their afternoon tea, the hotel also has a restaurant and many luxury rooms both in the house and in buildings set out in the sprawling gardens. You can drive down for the day, or make something special of it and book a room for the night.
