There’s no more civilised way to pass the day than with a delicious afternoon tea followed by a stroll around the beautiful 35 acres of grounds and parkland surrounding the hotel.
West Lodge has a well earned reputation for the selection and quality of its afternoon tea. Our traditional afternoon tea can be taken in the Mary Beale Restaurant, on the Terrace, or in one of our lounge areas. Rest assured that you will enjoy a relaxing afternoon in beautiful surroundings.
