Luxury Afternoon Tea

Let time stand still

What a relaxing way to while away an afternoon with friends or with your family, enjoying tea, coffee, beautifully crafted sandwiches, cream cakes, and, of course, scones with clotted cream and home-made jam. Perhaps even add a glass of Champagne.

Afternoon Tea at Glenapp is a special occasion. Views from our dining rooms over to the Ailsa Craig and beyond are simply breathtaking, these locations to enjoy your afternoon tea offers relaxation, where time feels almost suspended. We invite our afternoon guests to breathe in the spectacularly clean air and explore the castle grounds including our unique Victorian Walled Garden, beautiful throughout all seasons, and the Italian garden, designed by the amazing Gertrude Jekyll.

Our Afternoon Tea is created daily by our talented team of Chef's who will utilise the best in season local produce.

Afternoon Tea is served in our Castle drawing room or The Azalea Glasshouse Restaurant from 12 noon until 5pm, everyday.

Private dining areas for afternoon tea can be offered for groups of 8 or more people.

What our guests say

"The castle is in perfect condition and the gardens are absolutely beautiful, the rooms are full of character and extremely comfortable. For me the main event was the food which was of Michelin Star standard using many home grown or local produce - excellent from start to finish, in fact I would go as far to say that it was one of the best meals I have had!"
