Overview

Spoil someone special with a lavish afternoon tea at the picturesque Priest House by the River. Choose a cosy corner in the Millstream Bar or, if the weather allows, you can take your tea out on the terrace, which sits snuggly on the banks of the tranquil River Trent. You and your lucky guest will relish a delightful tower of sandwiches, scones, pastries and cakes, all topped off by a chilled flute of prosecco. Of course, no afternoon tea would be complete without a piping hot brew; yours will be served to you the traditional way using the finest loose tea leaves, strained to your personal taste.

Disappointed
20 September 2020
There was no sparkles the scones and cakes we shop brought and not had good only egg and tuna sandwiches. I have had afternoon teas before and had a lot better choice for less money. Lovely location but overall very disappointing

poor experience
07 September 2020
The service was very average, sat near window which cill was covered in dirt and dust, broken curtain pole which was ready to fall off. Sandwiches were not very good, bread was hard as if it had been standing for ages , fillings were average and cakes the same. The only good thing was the coffee. Such a pity as the location was nice.

Not So Sparkling
03 August 2020
Bearing in mind this was booked as a ‘Sparkling Afternoon Tea’, we were not offered any ‘fizz’, nor even a choice of different teas, just tea or coffee. Whilst the sandwiches were very fresh, the selection lacked imagination (egg, tuna and chicken). On a more positive note, the cakes were all very nice and tasty, and the venue was pleasant (especially given the current challenging times).

The sparkling afternoon tea was delicious service was excellent .The only thing to remember if you book this is they said it wasn't sparkling but I insisted on the website it said sparkling afternoon tea. (Which is £5 extra per person) in the end they gave us the prosecco.Maybe 'buy a gift' need to sort this out.overall we had a lovely tea
