Afternoon Tea at Seaham Hall

The idea of afternoon tea is rather wonderful.

I don't actually like tea, I feel like I am letting England down when I say that. While I was in Mexico there was an American lady who asked if we had afternoon tea everyday. When I told her no that I didn't have time to do so at work and that I didn't like tea anyway. Her face drop and she was in so much shock.

But peppermint tea will do.

I love the little sandwiches you get and the amazing cakes which makes afternoon tea the best idea ever...fact.

We arrived at Seaham Hall on Good Friday at half 3.


A grey and drizzly day.

Seaham hall as you might have already guessed is in Seaham which is just 5 miles away from Sunderland.

As we arrived I was mesmerized by the water feature.


Afternoon tea is served in a very stylish lounge.


Clotted cream, milk, butter and of course homemade jam were already on the table waiting for us.

The staff were extremely friendly and brought us our tea straight away. 


The tea was bottomless. The best type of tea. I went through three pots!

Everything tasted amazing.


Here we have salmon and cream cheese, cucumber and cream cheese, ham with mustard mayonnaise and egg and cress.

Egg and cress was my favourite.


Chocolate salted caramel tarts, short bread bunnies, raspberry macaroons, cream horns and pistachio doughnuts.

Just looking at the photo is making me want to go back from some more macaroons.


And on the top warm plain and fruit scones.

Everything tasted amazing. The macaroons were my firm favourite.


Afternoon tea costs £22 and I think so a special occasion it is a wonderful place to celebrate.

On our way out I did pop my head into the Byrons bar & grill. How beautiful is this room? My Mam and I have agreed to come back for dinner soon.


Afternoon tea was the perfect treat for a miserable good Friday.

Are there any places in the North East I should try for afternoon tea next?

    1. It was beautiful. I've been to JDH for afternoon tea. It was with a Jo Makone event and all the treats were linked to the fragrances. It was beautiful. Katie x
