Afternoon Tea at Hotel du Vin

Back in April, it was my friends 30th birthday, we don't get to catch up very often so we said we would make an afternoon of it. After a lot of to and throwing, we decided afternoon tea would be our best option. I didn't want to go somewhere too local or too normal, we wanted to find somewhere fun and unique. After spending some time scrolling the internet trying to find a place for us to go, I came across Hotel du Vin at Henley-on-Thames. Henley-on-Thames is about a 40-minute drive from where I live so it was just right for somewhere different.

Hotel du Vin looked perfect for what we wanted it looked like a nice place and the afternoon tea looked really good. I booked us a table in few weeks in advance but it was midday on a Friday, during term time, so there was no trouble booking.

We arrived about 12.00 for our booking at 12.30, we were blown away, it was a beautiful place. We were really lucky too as the weather was perfect and the sun was shining, so we picked a table outside as it was so beautiful in the courtyard area.

The first course of the afternoon tea was individual plates of savoury sandwiches and snacks. I really liked that these were given to everyone in the party individually as then you both got to have the same and eat whatever you wanted to.

Then once we had finished the first course, that when the fun begun. The waiter brought over the sweets and even the tables around us couldn't help but be amazed I mean who doesn't love apple flavoured candy floss!

The fresh warm scones were to die for as well as all of the other yummy sweets and cakes. I actually couldn't get enough! I was so impressed with the service, the food, the location the whole package was extremely good value for money. I would highly recommend booking an afternoon tea at Hotel du Vin, and we are actually already planning to head back but this time as a treat for my Nan.

Have you been to anywhere for afternoon tea that really stands out for you? If you have I would love to know where abouts it was?

Lots of Love
