Between Christmas and New Year, six of us went for Afternoon Tea at Overwater Hall. We booked ahead for 3pm on Friday, 28 December. We were taking American couple, my daughter and her Canadian boyfriend. We should have checked the map more carefully as we took a circuitous route to the hotel, and satnav is not helpful. But on arrival, the place is a delightful old English Country House, standing in its own grounds, and Steve (the owner) was pleasant and welcoming.
We were seated in the lounge in comfy chairs around a low tea table. Our guests were entranced by the room and keen to know more about the history of the house. Most of the comments, however, were reserved for the ample sandwiches, scones, cakes, etc. None of the dainty 'pop it into your mouth at one go' here, This was a beautifully presented and served proper English Afternoon Tea which charmed our guests.
We would definitely go again.
