Afternoon tea in leafy Hertfordshire

Dreamy leaf teas from faraway places

A feast on towering silver tiers… every mouthful is bliss. Neat finger sandwiches. Warm fresh scones folded in linen napkins and a selection of traditional British afternoon tea cakes. A truly luxurious experience at The Grove, served in our historic Mansion Lounges. You’re treated like royalty… yet the atmosphere is so relaxed, you can feel free to take your shoes off and curl up as you catch up on the gossip. Read the papers. Watch the flames in the real log fire… admire the astonishing flower displays, inside and out.
