When in Scotland, it's an absolute must to experience a traditional afternoon tea. As the name suggests, this is a post-lunch or pre-dinner ‘meal’ and it revolves around dainty sandwiches and traditional Scottish cakes and sweet treats. We serve all of our afternoon teas in the traditional way - on pretty, vintage plates with teacups and saucers.
You'll be treated to 4 elements of afternoon tea:
1. SCOTTISH TEA (AND PROSECCO IF YOU CHOOSE THIS!)
When you arrive, you'll be offered a pot of Scottish Tea by Brodies of Edinburgh, but coffee or herbal teas are available if you prefer.
2. SAVOURY TEA
Traditional finger sandwiches and mini homemade sausage rolls.
3. SCOTTISH SCONES
Homemade scones, which Carfraemill is famous for, served with delicious local jam and cream. Be sure to ask for a top up of tea or coffee if you need one!
4. CREAM CAKES & SCOTTISH TRAYBAKES
The top tier of the cake stand, and usually the last to be eaten, includes a selection of Scottish cakes and homemade traybakes. Most of our recipes have been passed down through generations from across the Highlands and the Lowlands of Scotland.
