Make Horsted Place your place for an elegant afternoon

Horsted Place is renowned throughout East Sussex for lavish full afternoon teas.

Afternoon teas are served in the comfort of our lovely Drawing Room where guests can take their time to enjoy the spread, passing a winter's afternoon in front of the log fire. As you would expect, everything is home-made, even Chef's renowned raspberry jam.

On pleasant summer afternoon the gardens provide a quintessentially English setting, when the same delicious teas with a selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes are served outside on the terrace.

Why not treat someone for their birthday - perhaps with a welcoming glass of Champagne or Pimms to celebrate a special occasion!? Or maybe give them a voucher, obtainable from Reception, so that they can book a date at their leisure.

The Traditional Full Afternoon Tea Menu is served from Monday to Saturday between 3.00 pm and 5.00 pm, and on Sundays from 4.00 pm. Afternoon tea guests are kindly requested to vacate the Drawing Room by 6.30 pm.

Booking is essential (24 hours notice required).

Food allergies, intolerances and diets such as vegetarianism should be advised at time of booking. Please note that whilst we do all possible to accommodate important dietary needs we are only able to do so with prior notice and no substitutes of individual menu items may be made on the day.

We aim to provide a relaxing and peaceful environment in which to enjoy afternoon tea; families with children are asked to respect the comfort and enjoyment of their fellow guests.  Prams and buggies may not be brought into the Drawing Room.
