Bath's Best Afternoon Tea Spots

If there was ever a more Bath pursuit than taking afternoon tea, we have never heard of it. This English tradition of sipping a piping hot pot of tea with scones and cake is a wonderful slow way to pass a few hours with friends or family.

Needless to say, Bath has some very desirable destinations where one can take afternoon tea, all with reputations for excellent bakery skills, excellent service and wonderful surroundings too. 

Our top Afternoon Tea picks are:

1.) The Pump Room Restaurant

If you imagine one of Jane Austen’s elaborate regency social occasions in a grand banqueting hall, you are part way to knowing how wonderful this setting truly is. All of which is within view of the source of Bath’s thermal spring. 

Find out more about The Pump Room here.

2.) The Royal Crescent

The private gardens at this world-famous hotel make for a wonderful setting for afternoon tea on warm days. Equally, its fine dining restaurant serves up everything you could wish for. You can also add champagne on special occasions. Open to non-residents. Booking recommended.

3.) Sally Lunn’s 

The oldest house in Bath serves up a secret recipe for its world-famous Bath Bunn with mouth-watering options for toppings. It serves both sweet and savoury afternoon teas and has a wheat and dairy-free option too.

4.) Thermae Bath Spa

After taking to the hot waters of Bath’s thermal hot springs water, why not indulge in an afternoon tea with fresh scones and sandwiches in the Spa’s dedicated restaurant; all part of their Tea for Two at the Thermae Spa Package.
